I saw that this community hadnt been written in for awhile so I thought I would start things up again and introduce myself!
Im Danielle, 19, and am a first time mother. I have a 7month old son, Owen, who was born August 8th. He was 7lbs 14 oz and 21 inches long.
Right now he is teething and poor guy is feeelin' the pain!
How is everyone else and their babies doing?!
anyone else have a big baby? Not including your spouse, of course.
My DS is 5 months old and teetering on the cusp of 20 lbs, and I've been feeding him solids? for several weeks - we started with a jar of baby food - on a lark, just to see if he would be interested (since he keeps attacking my plate!) and he DEVOURED it - I'm not extremely comfortable with preprocessed baby foods, so I bought a grinder, and to make things easier for all of us, i give him pieces of fruit to gnaw on (95% sure he's teething, and I want to get him used to chomping OMNOMNOM) and I also give him ground fruits and veggies mixed with rice cereal and breast milk or formula. I've been watching his diapers to get an idea of how his meals are treating him, and everythign looks a-ok. My only worry is that now I'm looking on websites and I keep seeing things saying that NO baby should have raw fruits until 6 months. So what NOW? Start cooking pears and apples? Or keep grinding raw pears and apples? Sigh.
Well, I just joined this community- we just had a baby on the 13th. I'm excited to be a mom and I am hoping that this community will get going since we will all have little ones the same age. Any takers? Current Mood: cheerful
Our First Baby
Hey, I hope you don't mind me posting this here.
First off, I'm Andy (Ok, I know this is a place for mothers, but my girlfriend doesn't post on Livejournal, hopefully its ok that I do?), and we're due our baby 7 weeks today.
Unfortunate for us, We've only had the one scan..
(Taken around week 12)
It's obiouvly been a while since then, and we can tell the baby is getting much bigger. I'll get a recent pic up of my girlfriend with her big baby belly!
We're pretty sure we have all the essentials, from pram, to cot, to moses baskets, to essentials (wipes and nappies), clothes and whatnot. If I were to post up a list of everything we have, would anyone care to fill us in on anything we're missing?
The only thing we're really needing is a house! But hopefully, that shouldn't take too long.
I'll keep you updated with the news and whats going on with My girlfriend and our (soon to be) bundle of joy!
