    Crab sees my concern. I know it's an allergic reaction, but her immune system is obviously on the fritz/weakened, so my concern is that she will catch something and then pass it on to sister.

    Glad to know Annee is invincible now. Learned something about my new super power
    Moo.

    I just worry cuz when Grace was 4 weeks old, she got a cold (and was breast fed, so I'm not sure about immunity). I felt like I had failed her as a parent. Like "Ahhh! I just got you and already broke you!" lol

    Also I'm one of those crazy moms who whisks her kids off into the big wide world right away. Annee has already been to restaurants and grocery stores, yet not to church (cuz people at church won't leave her alone, I'm sure )

      She's protected from anything to which you're immune, so Grace catching a cold was only because you weren't/aren't immune from catching a cold.

      JMO, but I don't think you're crazy for getting her out into the big wide world so fast. She'll be strong just like her mom.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        I don't think you're crazy for getting out there either.

        More like, I couldn't go out. I was exhausted, it hurt to walk (my hips shifted pretty majorly -- particularly the left), and it was just too taxing to go anywhere. It just felt like a ton of work to go out and meet some ladies for coffee. But the younger mums here are out and about right away. I think they bounce back quicker than my (32 yo) self did and they probably have a much higher social need than I do.

        I started taking him to yoga classes (ones I taught) when he was 4 weeks old, so I was back in the thick of things.

          I feel so sneaky *rubs hands together evilly*
          Grace has had no interest in trying my stuff, and I haven't wanted to force the issue... so I poured some of my milk into a glass and filled the rest with raw milk. Grace is clueless.
          mwahaha
          Maybe I can gradually decrease the raw milk amount and completely replace it with mine. That would save us at least $30 each month!

            I wouldn't want to start feeding my 41/2 yr old after not feeding him for two years, but I feel I must put it out there as an idea. :-D
            I wish I hadn't stopped feeding him though,it was only because pregnancy hormones made it feel horrid that I stopped it,I'd have fed a lot longer if it hadn't I think. A month before I did stop feeding him he had a terrible bout of croup and I was so glad of being able to feed him to sleep and nourish him through it.
