    Hey everyone!

    Things are well here. Violet weighs 11lbs now and is doing great. We had a green poo issue that is seeming to get better with structured block feedings. Breastfeeding is easier but it is still a challenge. But we've made it 10 weeks so far and I don't see us stopping before she is one.

    When will you mamas offer solids? I am reading LOTS of conflicting information. Some say rice cereal at 4mo, some say nothing until 6mo or more. Oy. The decisions never end!

    I'm not sure either about solids... Probably just watch him to see when he shows interest and discuss it with my pediatrician. There really is a ton of info out there. I'm trying to not research too much- I really try to go with the flow and not so "by the book". There isn't a magic age when suddenly solids work, its different for every kid.

    I agree. I think there are guidelines but it is more based on the child's needs. Just watch for signs that they are ready and go with it.

    I think we'll introduce baby rice at 4 months or so but will see what his signs are first. He is a hungry boy so I'm sure he'll enjoy it :)

    I have to really enforce a strict schedule for Lilah today. During the day, she takes naps that last hours and its great. But then, she wakes up every hour to feed and end the night, I mean like 4 AM to 7 AM, in a cluster-feed. I'm going crazy with tiredness. So today, I've moderated how long I let her nap for and made sure she's eaten plenty during waking hours. Hopefully she'll sleep better tonight. We also moved her to the crib. Maybe putting some distance between her and her food source will help her sleep better. :shrug:

    When I moved the baby to her crib it took 2-3 nights and she started sleeping longer. I sleep better now, DH sleeps better, and she only gets up once to feed. I think they smell mom in the room and figure they'd like a snack and comfort suck before going back to sleep.

    The crib failed. We put her in it for bed at 7:40 PM and at 9, she was still awake and so upset. So I let her nurse and she passed out on me. And slept until 2 AM! Then she ate and got a diaper change and was back asleep by 3, and slept until 7! In her co-sleeper. It was not the setup I planned for, but making her daytime naps shorter so she'd eat more during the day certainly worked for us. A five hour block and a four hour block. I haven't gotten so much sleep in a long time! And now that I read that back over sounds pretty sad, lol.

    So I have a period calculator and today was my predicted period day and like clockwork I got my period so I'm happy to know my body is still on the same cycle of 28 days and were not really trying to get pregnant but just letting whatever happens happens it took us a while last time so maybe not thinking about it so much now will be better

    I posted on facebook, but I'll post here as well. My baby girl had her two month check up today and she is two months today. 10 pounds 10 ounces and 23 inches long! Her vaccinations broke my heart, but she's a brave little girl and handled it very well.

    How long does it take for Mirena to start preventing pregnancy? I got mine 2 weeks ago and had sex without any other form of protection this morning... And now I'm kinda nervous. I am so not ready to have another kid.

    Mirena is effective as soon as it's put in.

    I understand where you're coming from, but I'm 22, so I've got more than a decade of potentially healthy pregnancy years, lol.
