  • 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

Good to know about the washer, we're looking at buying one in the near future.

i would swaddle mine and then put them in the changing table section of their pack and play. that way they could sleep on their stomachs some what but they couldn't actually roll anywheres.

and i coslept with both boys until a good 4-5 months down the road. and now we do it occasionally.

lanolin is your friend for the callouses on your boobs. pick up a tube, it is only $5 at heb/target.

and it sounds like you need mittens! you should have gotten some in the baby shower. or, you can just use socks on the hands. helps a lot with the razor blades.

To fix the boy peeing on you problem... you open the diaper, expose the penis to the air, then quickly put the diaper back down. Wait approximately one minute, THEN change the diaper.
