Sorry, I am new to the site but would like to join this thread.

Brooklyn is our 3 year old daughter. Hubby and I have been discussing a second child, but it will not be happening in the too near future.

This is one of my favorite pictures of her from this past winter.


And something much more recent

I do wonder with these things.... How many children have we met or are we as adults, that have spine problems from carriers :/ realistically.

And all the rest... Foot problems from walkers, etc etc

I know plenty of adults with unexplained back problems...it could be from a number of things, but I wouldn't rule out that those carriers could have contributed.

Speaking of hip/joint development...my daughter loves to be carrier in what is essentially a front facing crotch dangling position. I'm considering getting a jumperoo. She's only 10 weeks, holding her head up and sitting assisted. I'm not sure if she's too young for it, 3 months is recommended.

Those are also cited for hip and spine problems, but if she's only in it for 10-15 mins at a time for no more than 30-45 minutes a day, it should be fine, right?

Does anyone use one, and how did you know your baby was ready for it?

We put Everleigh in hers at around 10 weeks. She's always had really good head/neck strength. She's almost 14 weeks now and it's only been in the past couple of days that she understands the cause and effect of how to bounce but even before this, she loved it. It's been the ONE thing that lets me get anything done around the house/eat/pee.

Went to the doctor today to draw blood/talk to the CNM. The following was established:
  • I can drink pumpkin beer this fall. She said 1 or two per day is fine, and I NEVER drink near that.
  • She doesn't think I'll show until 7+ months. No buying new coats for winter, thankfully
  • I CAN GO TO MACCHU PICCHU! She said no hiking (we didn't want to, we were going to do the train), and be extremely careful of what I eat, but it should be okay. I'm going to book a tour for elderly or something so that the walking pace is more my style.

Next Friday I will go in for a dating sonogram. Then I guess it's real, and I need to start telling my principal/colleagues so we can plan out the last quarter of the school year. Tomorrow I go to the therapist for the first time ever, to hopefully talk through my anxieties and scrounge up some excitement for this.

Thinking of you Cali.

Also, lucky you for not going to show until 7 months. This was me at 7 months (sigh):

Cali you are having a baby?! Yeah!


And being a mom of a child with autism is so strange. My life is all about Briggs and autism.... but at least his therapy has gotten started.
