Quoting Intrepid Detective Munch:" I just love her she's so cute. How is yours and Dhs relationship now? I know its been "rocky"."


Aww thanks. :) Poor dear isn't feeling well today. Woke up with a crusty eye (squired BM on her haha) and a snotty nose... and has a bit of heat rash although I've kept her naked. And the spit up, oi... ended up wearing a whole nursing session then had to do it again 'cause she refuses a binkie. >_<



We're... eh, the same. Haven't had a day alone since the baby was born two weeks ago. Literally visitors every day (his and mine stayed here 6 days) so he hasn't had to do much... but now everyone is gone so we'll see how this goes. Between constant nursing and trying to get rest myself I haven't been able to do much. x.x

Hey, mamas! A fellow BG mama directed me to this page. I really need some help. I know absolutely nothing about cloth diapering. DD is 16 months old and I am considering switching her to cloth diapers. I don't know what I need or where to start. There are so many terms I don't understand and I don't even know where to get them. Help?

Thanks, ladies! The only thing I know absolutely for sure is that we do not have the biggest budget. Lol

I'd just go with alva or sunbaby then. Or buy from the swap.

Thank you all so much! The alva diapers look like something that would work well for us!



Zen mama, I might get some from you! I will have to take a look at everything on my computer when I get home :)

Hi ladies!! I had my baby girl on Sunday August 18th at 5:25 am at 38+4. She weighed 6lbs 6oz, 19.5inches long. I had her via natural vba2c after 2 daysn of early labor (5-7min apart contractions, was sent home on fri night at 1cm). Went in saturday night at 4cm, admitted around 11pm. After about 3-4hours of walking, bouncing on the ball, being in the tub, I was at 6cm, asked for IV pain meds, they had no effect (which is why I say I went naturally) as I was in transition already and within 30minutes went from 6cm to "something's coming out of me!" the water bag was bulging and it burst and within an hour of pushing she was born!! It was crazy fast and intense, but worth it!! I feel AMAZING!! She is beautiful and perfect!!
She is currently wearing her first CD, a preemie prefold snappi'd under a sweet pea newborn cover.
