    Default heart burn and rocking chairs and cribs

    what did everyones dr suggest for heart burn?

    also, did everyone use rocking chairs to nurse? also, are the cribs that transform into a toddler crib a good idea?

    I didn't have heartburn until my third pregnancy. I used tums and stayed away from food that I know caused it. I had a rocker/recliner but I tend to nurse on the couch or in bed during the night. Once they get to about a month I am able to nurse laying down in bed so I do that for night feedings and day feedings are usually just the couch.
    We have never converted our crib to a toddler bed because usually it was needed by the next child. Alot come with the conversion though, so you might as well get one.

    I had wicked heartburn. I statted with avoiding foods that triggered it, then tums, then gaviscon, then at the end zantac.

    I couldn't live without my glider. When I had my firstborn I had a wooden rocking chair and it sucked. We bought a glider and the motion for rocking is so much better. I always rock and nurse my babies to sleep. My husband likes to bounce our baby to sleep on an exercise ball.

    I used tums with my first b/c I only got it at the very end. I had such bad heartburn with my second and used tums until second trimester and then started to cut zantac in half when needed. Third baby, thankfully no heartburn.

    I had a little heart burn with each pregnancy but nothing significant. I also nursed wherever, and TBH as soon as I started to nurse laying down... that was my preference method. I found it less straining, and more relaxing.

    I sucked back packages of Rolaids with my third pregnancy - it was pretty constant that when I laid down the heartburn would act up.

    I didn't use a rocking chair, I nursed wherever and whenever.

    I didn't buy a convertible crib we went from a crib to a twin.

    definitely tums as they also have calcium in them and are good in pregnancy.
    Crib converted to toddler bed worked for us!
    Also, we did get a rocker but I preferred to nurse laying down and propped up pillows/couch!

    I have a tendency toward kidney stones (I passed one during my second pregnancy - that's a whole story of it's own). Too much calcium and I'm in pain.
