I used belly bands for my girls so diapers and clothes wouldn't rub on the stump.

Thank you to all the voters

What are belly bands? Like band aids?

it's basically a wide stripe of soft cloth that goes around the waist and protects the belly button

How were all the Babies' first Christmas?? We had fun and even though he has no idea what's going on it's still fun. We got him a Baby Genius DVD and CD with Lullabies on it, a little vibrating dog toy to hang on his car seat, and a cute little stuffed turtle that when you squeeze it's toe it giggles. From the baby we are getting decent amounts of sleep!! The best gift ever, he goes down around 9:30 and wakes between 5 & 7 but usually close to 6, then he goes back to sleep for 2-3 hours. He is such a great baby and he brings us so much joy!! Here is a pic of him on Christmas.

OMG! Faith wore that same outfit yesterday! She's a really good baby too. I put her to bed between 9:30-10pm and she gets up between 5:30-7am. We got her some activity keys, my first winnie the pooh, some baby einstien toy that counts between 1-10 and says abc's, and a kick and whirl carnival. She has only opened 1 gift so far. We are waiting for daddy to get home to open the rest.

Your little boy is so cute

She said it was just bleeding a bit because it was starting to come off a little too soon. She put some more of that blue dye stuff on it to dry it more.

But I don't think it's anything to worry about unless there's a lot of blood.

My middle baby is 17 months and he is a dare devil! Caught him trying to ride his rocking horse standing up. Yikes!

And my oldest "baby" is 5. Can't believe how fast he is growing! I remember sitting and rocking him like it was yesterday.
OUr experiences sound very similar. I have an almost 4 year old and an 18 month old. Both boys. I am outnumbered as are you!! Hopefully we can help to keep each other sane with all of the testtosterone floating around our houses!!

Do you need a signature?
I like seeing all the photos of your babies. If you want a signature made with a photo of your new baby, send me a PM and I will try to help you.

I hope the thrush is over soon. You don't need a fussy baby.

You could start with a digital or scanned photo. Once you have one, set up an account at www.photobucket.com and upload a picture there. Send me the link in a PM and let me know what you would like (colors, information etc.) Another free photo service is www.imageshack.com You could upload your picture there and send me a link and a PM. I would love to see your little guy. I know you have the hospital picture, but I bet he has changed since then.

Ok, so the thrush is gone and now had to take him to the doc this morning and Bruno has acid reflux. This was the 5 th night of him being up from 10 pm to 6 30 am. He is just miserable. so now I have to put some rice cereal in his bottles and see if that works. Hopefully it will but if it doesn't there are medicines to help. I just wish he wasnt so miserable and can get a little sleep. Yes sleep would be nice, thank goodness my other kids sleep till 11 30 usually so i get a few hours, but I wish that my mil or mom would take my other kids for a day so I can sleep when the baby naps.My other kids were such good sleepers, but in my case every kid has their own thing baby #1 cross eyed, #2 allergic to a bunch of stuff and has severe eczema and this one has acid reflux.... hope everything is going great for everyone else!
