The baby vicks says that it is for babies over 3 months of age. I have wanted to use it for Dulainn since he is congested but was nervous.

Ash is really snorty too and sounds constantly congested, but his ped said its just part of his reflux. I've put baby vicks on his feet before, but it was like a pinky-fingertip-sized dab spread on his whole foot, I haven't put it on his chest or anything yet.

ETA: ummm...ooops, Rebel, not Ash lol Oh my, getting them confused already

Growth spurts are definitely not for the faint of heart! Harper nursed every two hours during the day (usually goes three) and then every hour from 5pm-1am. I'll be glad when we are over this hump!

Re: Weekly Chat November 28th - December 4th

Hi gals! Sorry I've been MIA on DS proper ... been avoiding the hubbub for some reason ... been forced back on to hunt for larger dipes for Rose already.

OP ... like Andrea, I've got a good sleeper this time by no doing on my part. I figure God's just having mercy on me after 5 years of "Up All Night" - in fact, the older two still wake up as frequently as she does and have a harder time going back to sleep.

I guess Harper decided to make up for the rough night by blessing me with 8 glorious hours of uninterrupted sleep! She slept from 9pm-5am, 5-8, and then 8-9:45.

Woo-hoo! Keep it up, Harper!
... but you're right - growth spurts aren't for the faint of heart (both in the "up all night" sense and the "oh crud, we have to buy more clothes/dipes already?!" sense ...

Z has been puking a lot today...anything from just swallowed milk to "cottage cheese". It's kinda gross so I put on "scrubbies" (old stained clothes ) and made myself some yummy hot chocolate!

Rose seems to be in an eternal "witching hour" today ... somethings making her really uncomfortable.
