I just read this article and I thought I would share. What are your thoughts on using pain medicine while you're pregnant?

Baby Checklist. Month 3 Week 1
1. Is the 4-month growth spurt starting already? Suddenly baby wants to breastfeed all the time. I’m continuing to feed on demand — I know it won’t last forever.
2. Baby is starting to like colors! I’ve started offering more brightly colored toys instead of the high-contrast ones Ingrid used to enjoy.
3. Singing, whistling, clapping, and even blowing raspberries — baby loves sounds! I have lots of fun making sound effects for baby throughout the day. This helps Ingrid’s language development, too, so I’m okay with sounding silly.

4. Baby is finally getting the hang of using Ingrid’s hands! Ingrid is grabbing everything in sight — especially my dangling necklace or hair. Time to take off my nice jewelry for a while.
5. If baby gives me a minute to myself this week, I’ll go online and find some healthy recipes. Soon I’ll be cooking for baby, too! — but in the meantime, I want to make sure my partner and I are eating healthy, especially if I’m breastfeeding.
6. My breast milk is changing as baby grows. I’m making sure to eat healthy fats like nuts and avocados to get all the nutrition I need.
7. I’m enjoying the fact that baby’s schedule is getting more predictable! It’s tempting to use every extra minute to catch up on chores, but I’m making time to rest and unwind, too.

Baby Checklist. Week #11
1. I’m working on helping baby enjoy her crib, so I got Ingrid a projection soother that attaches to Ingrid’s crib and projects a scene onto the ceiling. Ingrid loves to look at it!
2. Baby might try to interact with other kids. Ingrid is interested in other babies!
3. I’ve learned to give baby a massage. It’s fun for both of us! — it’s relaxing and soothing for Ingrid, and it’s bonding for me. We’ve made it part of our bedtime routine.

4. I’m taking time to exercise regularly — at least three times a week. Even if I don’t have a lot of time, I take a quick walk with baby in the stroller to help myself relax and lower stress.
5. My partner and I talked about when we plan to start solids. Most experts recommend waiting till after baby is six months old.
6. I’ve talked with my pediatrician about when I need to call if baby gets sick. Especially if baby is in daycare, I know what symptoms to look for and when I should worry.
7. We made it past the newborn stage! My baby is officially an infant now!

Baby Checklist. Week #10
1. I double-check baby’s environment for choking hazards whenever I put Ingrid down to play. Anything smaller than a toilet paper roll is small enough to fit down a baby’s throat.
2. My baby’s skin is a little dry, and Ingrid’s starting to get eczema, so I use a gentle hydrating cream after every bath — and apply it again throughout the day.
3. Baby loves familiar people — and right now, Mommy and Daddy are his favorites. Whenever Ingrid sees one of us, Ingrid smiles. Sometimes Ingrid even reaches for me!

4. I’ve organized our schedules! I made a calendar with all my appointments for work and home.
5. I made a list of baby essentials that I need to have with me at all times. I’ve packed a diaper bag that can travel with baby to daycare or a babysitter, and I’m keeping it stocked with everything baby needs.
6. I’m keeping baby’s bum healthy! I chose a diaper cream that’s natural and hypoallergenic, with no petroleum.
7. Sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself all day long, because I’m constantly talking to baby — and even singing to Ingrid. I sound silly, but baby loves it! And I know it will help develop Ingrid’s language skills, so it’s worth it.

Baby Checklist. Week #9
1. My baby’s growing! Ingrid eats 4-5 oz of formula at every meal. If I’m breastfeeding, I don’t need to measure how much Ingrid eats — I just feed Ingrid on demand.
2. Baby can figure out where a sound is coming from! When Ingrid hears something that interests Ingrid, Ingrid turns Ingrid’s head and locates the source of the sound with his {name}’s eyes.
3. My baby seems a little constipated — Ingrid’s not pooping every day, and when Ingrid does, it’s hard. I move Ingrid’s legs in a bicycle motion to help get his digestive system moving.

4. I’ve set up the baby monitor, and it’s my new best friend! I can get stuff done on the other side of the house while baby is napping.
5. I really don’t feel like getting it on right now! I’ve never been so uninterested in sex. I know that breastfeeding can affect my sex drive, and my partner and I talked about how I’m feeling and how we can work together to stay connected even when I’m not feeling inspired.
6. My lactation consultant thinks that dairy I eat might affect baby, so I’ve cut milk out of my diet temporarily to see if it helps constipation or eczema.
7. I think my partner and I are ready for our first real date night! We’ve hired a babysitter, and we’re going to go out for a short dinner in the early evening. We’re prepared to come home early if baby gets fussy.

I decided to set up a bed time routine with my baby girl to see if it made the transition of going to sleep easier for her. Wel…
