I'm 10 week a pregnant with my 4th child and I'm currently breastfeeding my youngest who is 2 years old. I had my first appointment with ny nurse practitioner today and she was very adamant that I stop breastfeeding right now so new baby can receive all the nutrients. To be honest it pissed me off and she said that my daughter isn't getting any benefit from nursing anymore anyways. I'm getting another opinion for one.... 2. Anytime I get sick she gets my antibodies and do want catch it. 3. This is a huge bonding thing for us. 4. She only nurses herself to sleep so I do bot feel she is robbing baby of anything...
So today at my 24 week appointment I talked to my midwife about finding a pediatrician that is okay with delayed vaccinating. And that I don't want my LO to have any vaccinations at birth. The only ones they do when they are first born at Hepatitis and the vitamin k shot. She proceeded to tell me that the the hepatitis is not necessary to give that early but however she does recommend giving the vitamin k shot. She told me to do some research to make my decision...
Well I've been researching nonstop and I found that although vitamin k is extremely important there are other ways the baby can get it other than getting the vaccine... For instance there are pills in which I can take and tea I can drink. There is also an oral supplement that I could give baby.
So this brings me to my question, what do you ladies think? Did any of you opt out of the vaccine? Or are any of you not vaccinating for vitamin k? I'm a FTM and the thought of putting chemicals into my babies body really freaks me out, but I also want to make sure he is going to get the nutrients and vitamins he needs.
We just recently rented a new home and last night we found this in the closet ceiling by one of the A/C ducts! I'm freaking out because I'm pretty this is the reason my allergies have been going crazy as of late. But does this actually look like black mold? We've already contacted the landlord and he's just asked us for pictures so far. Should I get out immediately or is it okay? I'm 7 months pregnant and I don't want to put me or my LO in harms way. 😣😣😣😣
Hi- I'm planning on a hospital birth but almost didn't make it to the hospital with my 3rd and have gone from 5-10 cm with other kids in like an hr. I live anywhere from 40 min to an hr away from the hospital. Do any of you have a good book-video etc to recommend so that I can kinda prepare and know what to do? Dr won't induce til 39 weeks. I didn't even know I was in labor with 3rd just had back pain TIA
I am very interested in using cloth diapers with my son, but I live in California and we are currently in a drought so I feel a bit guilty having to use so much water to wash the cloth! I am leaning towards the honest company brand. Any advice??
So I found on pinterest a few recipients for making your own mascara! I know how bad store bought mascara is for your eyes and my eyes always get irritated. I was just wondering if any of you other lady's have tried making it and if so how did it work out for you? My concern is that it will be super thin? But if you add more bees wax it helps make it clump better? I know this has nothing to do with pregnancy I just want to be as healthy as I can be while im pregnant and in general :)
I just got a mozzarella pasta bake what is in a try in the fridge/chilled isle to do for me and my partner for tea and i just cooked it by the instructions which says bake in the plastic try and i did this in the oven and i had my tea but then i realised that i read somewhere that your not suppose to eat foods that has been heated up in a plastic try due to some chemicals that can leak out the plastic or is that when you put leftovers in another plastic container to reheat? And now i feel bad will my baby be ok??
I used disposables with our first but we have talked about using clothes for next baby. Which kinds do u recommend? What's a good starter stash?
Which styles didn't work for you tell me your experienced advice! Thanks ladies!
