    Ya, and after we put our foot down and tell them the subject is off limits and they bring it up anyway, then we are allowed to make insane jokes, be rude or act like they didn't say what they did and...

    Re: My friend needs help

    Sometimes his diapers from the night aren't very wet, even after night nursing. He doesn't sleep thru the night either.

    Re: Thumb or Pacifier?

    Just to give some perspective on thumb sucking... I sucked my thumb until I was in 6th grade! My teeth were horrible and I had braces for 5 years.

    Re: FF babies

    My dd is almost 5 mo and she eats 5 ounces of formula every 3-4 hours, night included.

    So the "I don't want to be tied down" remark doesn't hold water if you ask me!

    Not to mention all the...
