I hear you Urch, we did the same. Going to Cancun is cheaper but not when you add in the expensive resort we stayed at. We could do it cheaper though and not stay at the nice resort and stay in a condo instead. We're just going to play it by ear.

Sarah, yes the clinic is the Jack Newman clinic and they are amazing! They are so helpful and when you are there you are there for hours and they don't rush you. We found out Declan's tongue tie reattached a bit again. Also my supply went up but it still doesn't seem to be flowing well. It just doesn't flow easily and Declan still has to work hard to get it. They gave me some tips on increasing blood flow to help milk flow, mostly massage lightly around the breasts and for me to get a relaxing massage (not injury massage) to help relax my shoulders and neck. I think it could be due to my cysts. I have many (fibrocystic breasts) and they might be causing road blocks or bumps in the road so the flow isn't as great. The milk also creates pressure on the cysts and that causes a lot of pain. The massage should help. I am also to up my Dom to 4 tablets 4x per day. Hopefully having a lot of milk will force it out.

I stopped BF after 6 weeks. I was pumping 2-3 oz when i pumped for 15 min on a double pump but i have the hungriest babies. They took a full bottle or more after each time i BF even when i did it for an hour. Now one baby can drink 10-12 oz in the evening so there was no way i could keep up with that pace. I'm happy to have had the experience and hopefully gave them a good start. It is a huge sacrifice and i have a lot of respect for those who stay with it.

Hi Sarah, he is so adorable! He looks so big, like a big boy as in older. So cute.

My tablet isn't letting me upload a photo so I will post later.

How is everyone's LOs doing? Are they all or close to eating solids? I have been making Declan's food and I love doing it. So far only veggies and fruits. Yesterday and today I made apples, papaya, zucchini, and carrots (the last three are new for him), and tomorrow I am going to make more avocado and banana because we are getting low on those.

How are all your LOs doing with sleep? We just moved Declan into his room last week. I miss him being in bed with me, but he is starting to do well in his room. Except nap time.

omg care he is sooo cute! look at that cheeky face. such beautiful eyes!

and yes cieran is definitely a big boy....and seeing as he has 8 teeth now (top just broken in) makes him look even older. soon I wont be able to carry him in the car seat, my back is killing me as it is. I got the next seat up that we can rear face for a while, so will carry him into that.

ive just started on rice cereral but this weekend starting the veggies! he is also still sleeping with me, going to move him into his crib in his room soon but Im going to miss him so, it feels like tearing a part of my soul away. hubby thinks he should stay with us says 'we love him, he shouldnt be separated' but I worry he will end up with us till he is a teenager!!

just waiting for my period this weekend to start my FET medication

How is everybody doing? Most of our LOs are 6 months now or getting there. I can't believe it. Are any of your LOs sleeping through the night? How about sitting up on their own? Crawling? Declan always falls over when I try to sit him up for more than a few seconds, lol. But he has been rolling from front to back and back to front for months now. He doesn't crawl yet either, but I am happy with that.

He had his 6 month check up and he isn't gaining much weight at all. He is growing taller though. They doctor says there isn't anything wrong with him illness wise, but he could stand to add more weight. He said I could do nothing and keep going like we have been and Declan would still be healthy, but weight less or supplement a bit with formula after BF and see if he gains. At 6 months they are supposed to have doubled their birth weight. Declan was 9lbs 9oz at birth and is only 15lbs now. He was 14lbs at 3 months, so that concerns me. Most of the issue I believe is that during the day he is so interested in everything that I can't get him to sit still to eat.

Declan still doesn't have any teeth. Not that I am complaining! He loves swimming and going on the swing. He seems to be a little daredevil.

Sarah, I am so happy for you! How are you feeling?

Does anybody have any recent pictures of their LOs? I have some but I haven't put them on my computer yet.

Any updates ladies? How are your LOs doing with milestones?

Declan went on a nursing strike and it was horrible. I didn't supplement except with the occasional expressed milk. The first day he crawled he started eating again. He is still so distracted though it is really hard to feed him sometimes. I also took away his soother right before he crawled because I heard they could rely on them too much and it could cause feeding issues. So I am not sure which was the reason for the strike. It has been hard getting him to nap without the soother.

I thought I was ready for my cycle to come back and to TTC naturally, but then if I do get pregnant I won't be able to bf. I realized after the strike how much I am not ready to give it up yet.

Anybody have any pictures?

Sarah, how is your pregnancy going?
