Baby Products You Can't Live Without

Emily is about to have her second baby (YAY!) and has asked for our help. So moms let's get to it. :)

"I was writing a wish/shopping list of things to buy for this baby boy and started wondering what other mom's have found to be "baby products that they can't live without". There are so many things out there, and lots of reviews, but I don't have the time to research it all to know what works best and is worth a purchase. I would love to know what other mom's can't live without. And one particular item in question is a diaper pail. I didn't get one with Olivia, but am considering buying one for this guy. Is it worth it, and if so, which one is best overall?"

Bladder Infection

My little girl always seems to have a bladder infection. (At least that is what I think it is). I am going to the doctor's office today but I want to know what else I can do for her besides giving her meds. Any advice you mom's have up your sleeves? Prevention and/or treatment?

Getting a Toddler to Drink More

How do I get my almost three year to drink more? This may be TMI but her pee is usually dark yellow and so I know that means she needs more fluid. I have been trying to get her to drink more but have been unsuccessful. Any tricks or tips you have for me?

Going from 1 baby to 2

Cute Marci needs advice:

"So as i am preparing to welcome a new baby into our house in the next 3 1/2 months i am wondering if there is any advice, tips, etc that any of you moms of more than one would like to offer. I like reading what others think, it helps me form my own opinions of what needs to be done, or how things need to be done. The advice could range from how you prepared your first for the second, he will be almost 2, anything you prepared for in your homes/lives before or wish you would have done before the new baby arrived. Really any advice."

Milk Supply

I have witnessed a miracle at my house. My little guy who wouldn't/couldn't sleep for longer than literally a few minutes, even in your arms, has started sleeping on his own. (He has bad reflux and is now on meds.) It started out with 2 hour blocks of time and has gradually increased. Last night he went a whole 7 hours on his own. I LOVE it and it has made me a happy mom again.

My question is do I keep up my milk supply? I'm worried that with him eating so little during the night and then wanting to eat so much during the day my body is going to be super confused and not produce as much milk. Am I crazy for thinking this? Is there a way to keep up my supply without waking up and pumping?

Poop Clothes

I have a SUPER POOPER on my hands. What do you use to get out those nasty stains. I don't want to lose any more clothes!
