7 Quick Takes

1. Hi, My name is Mama Fuss and I'm a kids clothing addict. I love dressing my kids and buying them new, cute new outfits. I get frustrated when I can't find the cutest outfits in the right sizes. I spend more on their clothes than I do my own - and get more joy from shopping for them than myself.

2. I am trying to figure out if my boy has colic. Technically, he hasn't been suffering for long enough for a doctor to diagnose it as colic (3 hours a day, at least 3 days a week, for at least 3 weeks) but the poor little guy seems to be very unhappy at times that often seem to correlate to gas/gastrointestinal displeasure.

3. We have finally mastered - at least fairly well - nursing in bed. We have successfully done so twice in the last couple of days and we both seem to be very happy with it.

4. I got my new nursing cover yesterday, which I ordered from Simply Sweet Baby Boutique. I LOVE it. The woman who runs it, makes all these fabulous creations is someone I met through my maternity boards and she has created some beautiful things in her desire to come up with a business she can run from home so she can stay home with her son. She is creative and talented and I love her stuff.

5. My little guy is filling out his clothes a lot better these days. He has outgrown his newborn-sized diapers (I need to go buy some size 1s today) and is getting to be SUCH a big boy now! We go in on Monday for his 1-month appointment and we will see how much he's grown!

6. I am trying to schedule my 6-week postpartum appointment and our subsequent "all clear" celebration afterward. It is becoming more difficult than it should be with babysitters and such to be considered!

7. Our hotel rooms for Disney are booked! I'm psyched!


  1. I'm trying valiantly to finish off the newborn size diapers before buying size 1s, but I don't know if I'll be able to. I've got about 1/2 a box left ...

    Have you tried gripe water? I've never used it, but I know people who swear by it ...

  2. Using the gripe water - I think it's helping a bit, but not sure how much. I have about a dozen newborn diapers and I'm madly trying to finish them off before beginning the 1s - debating whether or not I can donate them to the church nursery or something. :) His little thighs have really plumped up.

  3. I hope the crying gets better! Even if its not colic, it sounds awful.

    I always try to use up diapers. I found a rarely used diaper bag with newborn diapers in it when Meg had been wearing size 1's for awhile. I used the newborn ones even though they were pretty small on her! I just watched her like a hawk while she was wearing one.
