Best swing ever!! I'm still using mine from 4 years ago when it was just released! Granted I didn't buy a Graco carseat this time, but that option to click it in was a great one to keep them sleeping

Yeah dr's are on crack sometimes I think. It is not a common development @ 3 months. It acutally doesn't happen in most babies until 2-3 http://mothering.com/peggyomara/breastfeeding-2/when-do-babies-sleep-through-the-night
babies that sleep through the night very early have an increased SIDS risk actually. Those night wakings are very important and wont last forever.

So, I tried milkmaid tea to increase my breast milk but had to stop taking it. It caused N to be extremely fussy and gassy.he cried for 3 hours straight by day 4 of the tea. So needless to say I probably will have to stop breast feeding soon because I'm not producing enough to store.I'm so depressed.

She told me that because the hormone is not systemic but localized it wouldnt interfere with an already established supply amd that the reports of it causing jaundice and breast enlargement were rare and usually due to other circumstances that werent mentioned in the reports.
My other options were the mini pill, shot, or patch, all of which i could see myself not liking. I was bad with my regular pills and the mini pill has to be taken within an hour of the same time every day-there would def end up being another baby in this house lol

I'll have to talk to my doctor about it. I am horrible with the pill and dont trust any other objects inside me.

Psh, I wouldnt dream of it. She had every thing easy. Like I said, every baby is different. From what I got from the pediatrician and what I read in baby books and websites, somewhere around 4 to 6 months, most babies are sleeping 8 to 12 hour stretches at a time. Although, my doctor said around 3 months he should change from being mostly awake at night time to being more alert and awake during the day.

I would have gave anything for my kids to sleep through the night at 4-6 months.



Lets see at our house... One was 11 months. One was 9 1/2 months, and one was almost 2.
