Re : When is it safe to take preemies out?

<t>Limiting visitors is really a good idea for all new babies until they are about 8 weeks old and have their first round of shots and have themselves somewhat organized. During RSV season, I wouldn't take a preemie (or newborn) to any public place personally. I dont' know if there is a rule of thum...

Re : Hubby says" I spoil my kids"...

<t>I think its a matter of what you guys are comfortable with. My husband didn't mind my toddler in bed with us, but it drove me nuts...after all day with her I wanted sleeptime with my DH. We just put her back every time and eventually she quit coming in. As for the sleeping w/ a bottle -- at my da...

Ashlyn's 2 week check up -- BF and sleep issues

<t>So I had Ash's 2 week checkup, which was actually 19 days instead of 14 days. She is still 1 oz under birthweight, but has showed steady gain since leaving the hospital of 1 oz per day, so they are not concerned. As for her marathon BFing (1 hour per time), the LC gave me a slightly bigger nipple...
