Interesting. DS hates it but i suspect it is the padding. He is very chubby. He is always sweaty. I'll try to remove the padding and see if he is happier.
We have a compaq from DD 2013 model; DS2 (born September 15) likes it well enough. More so than the capsule.
@KayzB - congratulations! That is amazing, but you are sure gonna have your hands full! I've not started, but going in to see Lynn in March or April to get things rolling. Hoping to start May / June, provided my cycle ever comes back. I was on domperidone for 6 months, and have finally gone off it so it's back soon.
@bbhope we just removed the padding/insert from the seat, so now it's more roomy. The inserts are good for a newborn, but yep def remove as bub grows.
@lileitak May/June is not far off at all! Where has the time gone hey. Have you already booked in an appt with Lynn? I imagine her wait times are even more ridiculously long these days! Hope your cycle returns from being MIA, ASAP ☺️
@bbhope ds was only on 5mg losec once a day I think. It was the liquid (suspension) version. For his lip & tongue tie he had numbing gel, then local anaesthetic for his laser procedure. I honestly don't think it hurt, but more so having to be held down that upset him (he hates being restrained at the best of times!). As soon as he was allowed to get up for a cuddle he stopped crying. And I totally understand about not knowing what to do, I saw quite a few unhelpful medical professionals who said some really stupid things (even my paed who I really love just said 'so why can't you just put him on the bottle instead'). So I did a lot of homework myself. @KayzB my boys are 3yrs and 2 mths apart. Ds1 is so good with his little brother which I'm really surprised about! They totally love each other
Honestly, I'd wait longer but we are moving overseas next year and I'd like to have our second, or be pregnant when we go. It would gut me not to use the embryos we have. I considered shipping them, but the cost / risk that they may thaw and my "advanced maternal age", we decided to use them now. If we get lucky a second time first go, then we'll consider shipping them for future use.
Ya shipping oversea etc can be complicated. So many rules and laws.
@apolly: thanks. I read a lot about GA and now against using it for DS. We r now looking into laser cut. Yes, I am very upset for being run around by Drs. All these hassles due to an incompetent pead.
