Thank you guys! Love your pic allison!

Falon wouldn't nap yesterday and was refusing her morning nap until I doped her with ibuprofen. Now she's crashed out and I feel bad for not trying this before since something was clearly hurting. Poor baby.

Honestly, the only thing I can think of that I would really NEED for a futurebaby is the Boppy. It was super helpful for nursing, and we still use it at almost 7 months to help her stay sitting up. She also napped on it (which you're not supposed to do I guess) for quite awhile.

One thing "needed" for me was a good carrier/sling. I used mine daily, pretty much all day often. Personally my favorite is a mei tai as for me it was the most comfortable and you can do back carries really early with them and thats super convenient for getting other things done.

I pretty much never used my boppy...never used the swing, and the bouncy chair was used a couple times.

This. Mine was a different brand but same idea. It was the only place Hannah liked to be if she wasn't in my arms. She never liked thr swing or the bouncy seat. I never heard that they shouldn't nap in them but we broke thT rule A LOT. She napped in hers beside me on the couch ALL the time.

And gripe water.

It SUCKS that a 6 year old can't just be a kid without being hyper aware of her breathing difficulties it's not fair. Hannah has developed ANOTHER cough resulting in a lot of asthma complications. She goes to the specialist on Tuesday but that seems so far away. With this cough she is needing her nebulizer every 4 hours and also using her rescue inhaler.

I'm thinking I may need to get her into the Ped on Friday to address this cough. it's a very deep, throaty cough and A LOT of wheezing

I wish she wasn't affected by asthma at all. I know what she's going through as I suffered like she is as a kid (mostly grew out of it thankfully other than the occasional flare up) but it's just not fair. she should be able to go out and run around and play without having an attack.

I didn't use the boppy either, and heard it's best for moms with small breasts...my lactation consultant said get rid of it, too. Now that she's bigger she likes to lay on her tummy on it but if I could go back I wouldn't waste the money.

Definitely a good baby carrying wrap. I had a knockoff version of the maya sling which was a lifesaver during the newborn period. I also love my moby style wrap (I made it) and the infantino soft structured carrier I have.

An activity mat seems like it'd be for older babies but Lillian loved lying on it from just a week old.

The majority of my boppy use was not really for nursing although I did use it for that as well because I just couldn't hold Hannah up that long without my arms wanting to fall off lol. So I would use that to hold her up and then that's just where she liked to be when we were sitting on the couch or if we were out and she wanted to snuggle up to me and nap I would just put the boppy around my waist and lay her on that with my arms around her so I didn't have to hold her up.

I used it so much... I bought a second one just in case that one was in the wash or something happened to it LOL

Poor Hannah...that is just awful for her to deal with.

Probably a long shot but I know for some asthma is caused by (or at least worsened by) gluten. My friends son was having a ton of breathing difficulties. They took him off gluten and it cleared up. You may have already looked into this, I dont know.

Hmmm that's interesting. I had not looked into that before. good to know.

her asthma went from very rare symptoms (basically a little cough if she was running around in cold weather) to needing her inhaler multiple times a day all of a sudden. It was like once she had her first real attack... it got really bad after that point. it is exercise induced as far as I can tell... unless she's sick (like now, and two weeks ago). Like she won't just be sitting around and have an attack (again... unless she is having bronchial trouble to beging with like a cold)... it always happens when she gets playing, over excited, running around, etc. At least it's at the point now where she's so used to it that she doesn't panic or freak out anymore, she's just like "time for my inhaler". but that's kind of sad in a way.
