My daughter has always been an 'every-other-day' pooper and I've heard that can be normal for breast fed babies. She might just be saving up a nice big one for you!

I had the same issue. My nipples hurt so much i had to grit my teeth to not scream every time u fed my daughter. They bled and were cracked. The trauma took a while to heal and besides keeping them hydrated and using lansinol cream, I couldn't do much else. It also didn't help that she didn't have a good latch. Once 6-8 weeks rolled around it g...
I will have to get it to try! She loves bath time and we make it part of our bedtime routine so using a calming scent will help to get her in the sleep mood :]
Your swaddle isn't tight enough of she is breaking free. If you get a swaddle me sleep sack, those are great! Our daughter loved it and responded very well to it. She's so used to hearing your voice and feeling/hearing your heartbeat, it's a big adjustment for them to be away from that. Good luck

Being back at work, I only have time to pump once, while my daughter will eat at least once or twice while I'm there. What I pump doesn't equal the amount that she eats and my supply is dwindling. What can I do to help reestablish and rebuild my supply? I really don't want to stop nursing. We do use formula to supplement when there isn't e...

Uterus usually grows to be above pelvic bone around 12-13 weeks and even then, it's just barely over the top and hard to even feel let alone see.

It is most likely bloat for all of you ladies. Baby is way too small and your uterus is still behind your pelvic bone at this point in the pregnancy so it is not baby. Bloat is a very common symptom, especially first symptom, in pregnancy. It's all so exciting and everyone wants that bump, but typically (not same for everyone) the real bump doesn't ...

It definitely means your body is getting ready for labor and baby. But your cervix can start thinning/opening for a while and it doesn't neccisarily mean you won't need to be induced eventually.
