I'm going out for saint patricks day with my kids dad. I know i'll b having more than one drink & smoke. How many days do I not have to breastfeed?

48-72 hours: Certainly, you can pump in advance to take over the few days you will have to assure any alcohol or cigarette carcinogens are out of your system, but too bad you can not just hold off on the smoking and alcohol for this one year? If you do decide the former course of action, do not forget to pump for those days off too, so your breasts stay lactating. Good luck. ...Read more

How do we tell our childern (4yrs, 2yrs, and 11mo) that daddy is very sick?

You may want to assess how much each of them can understand/how much you'd like them to know & sit w/them individually. Allow time for processing & let them ask questions.

It feels like I'm being pricked with a pin all over my body, does this have to do with my nerves?

It feels like I'm being pricked with a pin all over my body, does this have to do with my nerves?

Probably Nerves: The pin-pricking sensation you're experiencing could be due to a number of different causes. Something simple, like a medication reaction can cause paresthesia (the term for a sensation despite the absence of a stimulus). Paresthesias can be due to vitamin deficiencies, supplement overdoses, metabolic disturbances or neurological conditions. I would recommend a neurological evaluation. ...Read more

My husband and I both work full time, my sixteen month old is still prefers daddy instead for me, am I doing something wrong? What does mean?

Nothing: You are doing nothing wrong at all. This is a very common thing for children to prefer one parent over another. This will change at various times of their lives. You are still mommy, and will be forever. If baby wanted nothing to do with you if daddy was gone I may be worried. My granddaughter prefers her daddy over my daughter as well.

I seem to leave everything open such as doors drawers closets my wife seems to think its something in my pkychie could it be a part of something bad?

Might be: Could be a subconscious indicator of prior trauma now trying to surface, could be an issue with finality/closure (so leaving things "open"), or could be forgetfulness and a need to work out more (so you can close things...).
