    we never really did cradle hold. OS babies make their preferences known early.

    babies nurse in the oddest positions. DS was a yoga nurser. DD liked to nurse in ballet positions.

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.

    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I have a 4 month old and I do day care for a 15 month old. During lunch time especially when the 15mo needs a little help, I will feed my LO while he is sitting on my leg. He is supported in front by my breast, and I use my hand just at the nape of his neck to support behind him.
