Tuesday Tidbits

Can I just say that I am glad last week is over? Last week brought Tums swallowing, vitamin swallowing, a couch tumble, two severe head bumps, a car accident, a feverish two year old, an intestinally challenged infant, and a bout of mastitis. Yes, glad it's over with. No surprises this week please.

The girl has recently acquired neon green poop. Anybody out there have any clue what could be causing this?

Memorial Day was a bust. It poured and poured and poured. We had planned on grilling out and going to the pool, but instead we stayed in and took turns napping. I think I enjoyed that way more than a cook-out.

The speech people are supposed to be contacting us this week about evaluating Adam. Of course, now that we've got the ball rolling he starts saying more words. Last week he added this, look, bug, tea, boo-boo, and Beth. He does most of his talking to the baby so I guess he figured she didn't understand grunt.

I need a new sling, something less wintery thick as I don't want to fry my baby like an egg in the Texas heat. If you've used one and loved it, please let me know.

Oh Charlie, WHY??? How could you throw your life away like that? How can I watch Lost again without you? Will Penny save the islanders? What was the deal with the bearded Jack....future flashups?

I have a meme in the works. If you want to be tagged let me know.

Looks like our week is already starting off a bit better.....




Nothing better than a smiley baby......green poop and all.

I sure hope next week is better for both of us!

I've read that green poop in a breastfed newborn might mean the baby is getting mostly foremilk and not enough hindmilk, especially if she's doing short frequent feedings. I did see a change back to more yellowish poop when my babies started taking longer, more spaced out feedings.

I loved my hotsling for summer - very lightweight and comfortable for my July baby. Just be sure to get the sizing right.

And yes, I'm thinking future flashups are going to be a feature of next season.

What a cute pic :D

No clue about the green poop :/ I will be interested in hearing what it turns out to be.

Hope you have a much better week.

Can't help with the poop. My last kid didn't poop at all.
Hope this week is better for you. A car accident? Mastitis? Oh my. I had that and it was miserable! Feel better.

I tagged you... (turns, ducks and runs)

I have a Maya wrap sling. Just the regular old thin cotton one. Only one I've ever had (other than the Nojo icky one. Blech). Still use it!

I think it is the foremilk problem with the green poop.

I was NOT thrilled with the ending of the last Lost. Not at all. Hoping it's kind of a "dream" sequence again.

Love the smiley baby!!

I love my sling but the woman who makes it has gone out of business. :( I did get a watersling from wise woman slings. I really liked the design. She called it a hybrid sling. Very comfortable.

Don't worry about the green poop until you doctor tells you to. :)

There are some nice, less expensive ones on ebay too.
Happy shopping!

Okay, sorry to stalk...

Anyhoo, Sorry for a crappy wwek. Mastitis is NO fun. Car accident, yikes!

I've also heard that about green poo...the foremilk thing the other commenters mentioned.
