Thanks for all the advice! My schedule has always been to give her a bath at around 7, then nurse, then bed by 8. I tried moving it up earlier but she would end up fussing and falling asleep even later. My pediatrician said to feed her 3 solid meals a day and nurse in between. Continue Reading

Yesterday, I threw my arms up in defeat. I surrendered. I caved. I gave up. I did the unthinkable – called a medical specialist.

So, lately I have done a lot of ranting on frickinmom.com. It is CRAZY what a little ranting will do! Four years ago we purchased a Richmond American home. We loved the house for about 2 hours.
