It’s o.k. not to breastfeed, or is it?

It's o.k. not to breastfeedIt’s o.k. not to breastfeed, or so I thought as my hubby and  I walked into our first appointment with our soon to be pediatrician.

As it took hubby and I three and a half years to have Little Pumpkin Doodle breastfeeding was the least of my concerns. After making it past the 1st trimester, I thought, wow, I’m really going to have a baby! So I put myself into full baby mode and started nesting. First on my agenda was to buy cute baby clothes, second was to start looking for a pediatrician.

Before starting the search I did what most people do, and started asking friends, women on the street and reading blogs for tips on what I should ask while interviewing doctors. Feeling very proud of myself I was fully armed and ready to interview doctors with my two page questionnaire. [Read more…]

Is your baby the Happiest baby on the Block?

English: A 3 week old swaddled infant

LPD became continually agitated and I did what my instincts told me to do, rock her. Since rocking her back and forth didn’t seem to soothe her, I decided it was time to check out the books and CD’s that were given to me by couple of my girlfriends.  Among them were the answer to my prayers,  The Happiest baby on the Block book and CD.  I remember reading the book, well I should say skimming, and thinking this makes sense, but when I watched the video my whole world changed.  It was amazing how the doctor was able to take any fussy newborn, and within seconds quiet them down into a peaceful slumber.  You have to see it to believe!  There are so many types of swaddlers, but I purchased one with organic cotton with velcro closures and quickly realized that LPD would wiggle out like Houdini.  I was never as good as my godsister (the Doulah) or my hubby.  My godsister recommends a good old-fashioned receiving blanket. So when a friend is having a baby, they always recieve The Happiest baby on the Block.
