My husband and I are fully Mexican but speak more English. Our families mostly speak Spanish so we need something that sounds good both in Spanish and English. I’m due first week of May 😊
My son is 2 weeks old and sleeps great during the day but at 12am it’s a whole new ball park! He wants to constantly nurse and falls asleep on me. Once he lays down he gets up again and we repeat the process. We try rocking and offering the pacifier but he doesn’t really like the pacifier either (probably because my two year old tries to shove it in his mouth). My family (hubby and daughter)is... More
Curious to hear at which point have you all ventured out of the house with a newborn. Would you suggest at 1 month or after the first shots at 2 months? And where would you go to get out of the house for a bit. It is scary with the measles and flu outbreak so I’m pretty much glued to the house right now.
What do people feel is harder: Exhausted, bloated from pregnancy with a toddler OR Toddler and Newborn? Which is the less of 2 evils :-p
I’m 26 weeks pregnant with #2 and already freaking out! The kiddos will be 21 months apart (I never planned to have kids this close in age). My daughter is such a pleasure I’m terrified about #2. I’m kinda freaking out about the adjustment of having 2 kids and could really use some ENCOURAGING words or advice in making the adjustment. Everything I read is horrifying 😫
Please shine some light for me. I seem to be losing it wondering how I’ll be able to take care of a toddler and a newborn. I’m exhausted. Does it get better, and when? I’ve seen other moms do this effortlessly. And I am amazed, and baffled. Tell me how to make this work.
I’m 7 months pregnant and my best friend just had her baby girl. i had been trying to get a hint from her about the name or even letter she was thinking about but she went to the hospital with three potential names and didn’t decide until her baby was born. We just found out she chose the same name as us and we’re heartbroken. The name we chose is in honor of both my grandmother and great gran... More
A friend of mines newborn caught the RSV virus. And it has been awful for the little one. Now I have a newborn and I am constantly stressed of her catching it from visitors. First of all, I don’t allow visitors. But immediate family do insist. I make sure they wash there hands, sanitize, etc. Although, they get really offended about my approach. Also, with a toddler that attends daycare- I mak... More
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting two week old to sleep in her bassinet? For the past week, our little one has only slept for a short time in her bassinet before waking up and crying. In contrast, she relaxes comfortably in the mamaRoo swing. Any suggestions to make the bassinet more comfortable? We have tried a shusher device and different lighting, but so far these methods have ... More
My newborn baby is a week old and whenever we feed her, burp her for 15 minutes and put her down she spits up milk through her mouth and nose. How can I resolve this issue? What are good remedies, or over the counter medicines for this? The doctor recommended burping the baby very well, using a cool mist, and do not put the heater on in the room. Thanks!
Have anyone traveled by airplane with a baby at this age before? What did you do to make the baby calm!? My baby drink milk at the bottle, She never liked breastfeeding. I will have a international travel (24hs) with my three month old for the first time and I don’t know what can I do for don’t disturb the people around with her cries. And I don’t know how she will be going.
I want to breastfeed past 1y but I want my baby to be able to sleep throughout the night without waking up to nurse. She’s only 3m old now and nurses to sleep about 75% of the time. Mainly because I want her to go to sleep full and sleep longer (wakes up between 1-3 at night to nurse anywhere from 5-20 minutes and goes right back to sleep) Any moms see any correlation to breastfeeding and sleep...

Have any of you mamas given ur LO probiotics? My babygirl is going on 6 wks & was 6 wks early (so she spent 3 wks in NICU) so they put her on neosure formula with iron.

I had my second baby in the same year that i had my first born. My son decided to come really early I had him at 23 weeks. He is in the NICU and I’m praying he makes it out alive. He is truly a fighter tho and I truly admire my son for being such a strong guy during the hardest part of his life right now so mama also has to be strong for my little guy. Anyone else in this situation as well ?
Anyone experience their baby acting hyper active during or after an early (1 am-5am) feeding? My partner & I just had twins (3 months old) and the only way to calm one of them is breast feeding her after her feed. SN: I do offer extra breast milk in her bottle but she doesn’t take and cries for her moms teet (milk boob). Since I am back at work, Early mornings is my only shift to help my p... More
My five week old baby only sleeps on my chest. He’s still eating every 2-3 hours so he naps on my chest in between feedings all day and night. Loves tummy time though and has even fallen asleep on his stomach (I didn’t leave his side, nobody panic). I love the snuggles and how peaceful he is, but would also like to be able to get up and eat... or use the bathroom or change a load of laundry! We... More
Newborn son was just tested for this disease and it came back with him having 2 markers. The doctor then said could be false positive and needed to get blood work done. Now waiting for results. Has anybody dealt with this before or currently? What should I expect or be doing as I wait.
