Where should I buy maternity clothes in Gardena?

So I’ve gotten to the point in my pregnancy where I can no longer wear any of my normal clothes anymore. I’ve done some shopping for maternity clothes, but I feel like all of the ones I’ve seen have been either ugly, too expensive for clothes I’m only going to be able to wear for just a few months, or they’ve been ugly AND too expensive! Please help - where should I look for maternity clothes? I’m in Gardena. Thank you thank you thank you.

Cry it out method - does it even work?

I’m having trouble embracing the CIO method with our 4-month-old. Both my mother and mother-in-law swear it’s the best way to get a baby to fall asleep faster and sleep through the night sooner. At this point, my husband and I are getting desperate for more sleep and I know our baby needs it, too. Is it really the best thing to do, or can it be stressful on the baby?

Best nursing chairs?

I’m about to have my second child, and I want to get a nursing chair for our home! We didn’t have one when I was nursing my oldest, and we can finally afford one this time around. What are the best nursing chairs out there? Any specific details I should look for while shopping for a breastfeeding chair?

Should I go back to work or be a stay-at-home mom?

I was working in the service industry before my daughter was born, but she is about five months now and I still haven’t gone back to work. My husband has assured me that he can support us and I don’t need to go back to work if I don’t want to. I can’t decide if I should go back to work or be a stay-at-home mom though. I miss my job a lot, but I think I might feel guilty working when I could be spending time with my daughter instead. Any SAHMs or career moms who can give me some advice on this?

Breastfeeding vs. Formula?

I’m a brand new mom and after all of the books I read when I was pregnant, I had decided I wanted to breastfeed my son when he was born, but it’s so hard for me. It hurts and we’ve been having a lot of difficulty with him latching on. What are your opinions on breastfeeding vs. formula. Is it really that bad if we don’t go the breastfeeding route?
