I had my baby!

Yeah- your labor hair looked great-i'm very jealous! Not to be nosy, but I am interested in superstitions. What is the superstition about sharing the name?

We call him JJ for short, so you guys can too!

I never heard that. Interesting. I'm curious also -How long does this last? Does this apply if someone on the street asks his name?

For me 6 weeks was the magic moment - all of a sudden my supply was totally in synch with DS's demand. No more leaking, no more fire hydrant spray. I felt so much more normal.

I heard that it is not healthy to wear breast pads often - anyone know if this is true and why?
