  • aiden can burp louder and longer than some drunk frat boys i know
  • ham not dairy turns his tummy upside down
  • you can nurse in your sleep(i woke up sleeping on his shoulder while he was eating away
  •  you must have a blood transfusion when your Hematocrit reaches 7.9; i've been at 8.1 since they sliced me open to evict aiden
  • PUPPS sucks i feel for women who have while pregnant this post partum thing has sucked but as i get more of my blood and work out aiden's non matching blood they are getting better and i should only have a few scars from where i scratched a hole in my hide
  • if you never paid attention to poop before you will after you give birth, for at least a few weeks
  • swaddling is the good stuff if you make babies sleep on their back, their arms will startle them out of a deep sleep every time
  • it's possible for his to nurse one edge of a nipple till its callused.... his tongue is that talented i guess
  • there really is a difference btwn the "fore milk" and "hind milk" one looks like no fat milk and the other looks like whole milk, i know this  because he eats so fast it runs out the sides of his little mouth
  • breast milk is VERY sticky
  • babies don't have nails they have razor blade attached to the ends of their fingers and toes, i have the cuts on breasts and tummy to prove it *ouch*
  • you must sleep with your baby the 1st couple days/week seriously i know they tell all new moms this but for real do it , birth is not easy no mater how they get here
  • L&D nurses are part sadists, that "palpating" thing they do to your stomach after birth should be called punching or beating
  • pee is sterile and that's a good thing , if you have a boy please plan on getting pee-ed  on several times sometimes 2 or 3 times in one change
  • blood sticks  to hair, even if you have to brave your S.O. doing it  shave before you give birth
  • if you don't deliver vaginally  don't be surprised if you are ready to have sex with in days of having the kiddo, this waiting thing sucks!
  • you know you are working your "snot sucker" right when the kiddo starts screaming, other wise they seem to not mid
  • babies sleep better on their tummies...... SIDS is serious so they can't.
  •  babies make gasping for air noises in their sleep, i think this is just to panic 1st time moms.
  • small loads of laundry are your friend, get a washer that lets you set very small loads
  • the diaper was the strpe that tells you  if they are wet or dirty or both are really nice in the middle of the night and you sleep deprived
  • some times you just need a cuddle it trumps hungery and just about any thing else
  • some times all he wants is the water milk, just switch sides and moved on; your supposed to nurse 25 mins a side
