Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann- and Riogirl . Cute baby pictures! Ryann, I hope poor little Dylan recovers soon. Did the doctor say how long it could take? At least with diaper rash sores it only took a few days once we adjusted our treatment. They look so tiny and they will grow so fast. Those pictures made me go back and...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

I was curious to see if anyone else had the knee pain problem. I thought maybe it might be that I had been working out too vigorously too soon. But now that I know that others have had the same problem, I wonder if it's pregnancy related or the way that I am picking up my son and daughter.

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Lotrimin is an anti-fungal cream. That's what our doctor told us to use also when the white spots appeared. We also switched to Huggies and found it did a better job of keeping our son's "number 2" residue away from his skin. I think that has helped to stop the frequent diaper rash outbreaks. For al...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann -I second the idea of anti-fungal cream. My son has had some nasty diaper rash outbreaks. He seems to be more prone to them than my daughter, who hasn't had one incident of diaper rash, go figure. Anyway, here is what our doctor told us to do: 1) if the skin is red with white spots, use anti-...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann -He's still on Nutramigen. I have a spreadsheet that I've set up where I can track the prices of Nutramigen from different stores (e.g. Target, BRU, Diapers.com, Amazon, etc.) and I just purchase where it's cheapest per ounce, sometimes online, sometimes in a grocery store. Target.com will of...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann -My son was diagnosed with reflux early on also. We switched him to Nutramigen and he started on Zantac. Unfortunately, Zantac wasn't that effective, so we eventually ended up on Prevacid which has really helped. Our doctor said that they always start babies who have reflux on a prescription ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann- My twins were born early (35 weeks) and my pediatrician told me to use adjusted age whenever gauging their development (compared to milestones). He said we should do that for the first year. They are 5 months old, but we consider them 4 months adjusted. They also went through a period of not ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Lou71 - I did the 24 urine collection test. It was a nuisance, but apparently it's a more accurate way to assess the amount of protein in your urine. Be careful with the blood pressure. Do you have a BP monitor at home? Might be worth getting one, if you don't. My BP and protein levels started to c...

Re: Pregnant with Twins at 41...

Hi momwanttobe -I can certainly understand your anxiety. I had it too. I just gave birth to twins with donor eggs-one boy and one girl- about 5 months ago, at age 41. I was nervous when I found out we were having twins. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised as we had transferred 3 high-quality emb...

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Ryann- Google mastitis and see if that sounds like what you have. When you had a fever, that was the first thing I thought. I made it 3 months with breastfeeding as my milk supply just wasn't great enough and I didn't have time to pump as often as I needed to once my husband went back to work. At t...

Leora-There really isn't anything that anyone can say to help you deal with the grief, but all I can say is that I am so sorry for your loss.

Re: Beautiful Babies Born in 2011/2012

Gina- Have your twins been examined for reflux? My son was diagnosed with it early on as he was spitting up a lot and showing great discomfort after feeding. Our doc put him on Nutramigen formula (I had to supplement my nursing with formula), Prevacid, and we've been using Dr. Brown's bottles with ...

Re: Beautiful Babies Born in 2011/2012

Count me in. Looks like we will have quite a few twin mothers here! Preemies too. Mine were born about 4 weeks early. No NICU time, though-they were able to come home with us.

Re: Beautiful Babies Due in 2011 (Combined Group)

Mellow -Hope you and little Marlo are doing well. Lou- The babies are doing well. They are growing so fast. Some of their newborn clothes no longer fit. My daughter has had to start wearing a few things sized 3 mos even though she is only 8 weeks old. My son is colicky so that keeps my hands full a...
