Fortunately his color looks good in other pictures. So he’s probably ok. I just can’t imagine posting that picture because the poor kid is so purple! 

8+ lb baby and a reported fast delivery. It’s probably some residual bruising.

My super fast delivery baby had an extremely weird side effect. I guess if you have an overly fast delivery, they can have a rush of hormones delivered to their system and grow tiny baby boobies. It went away after a few weeks. But I thought it was so strange.

Chelsy looks tired in the photos which is very much a new mum with a new baby look. I wonder how much help she is getting.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the “aunties” watch Axton sometimes.

@PennySycamore, I swear autocorrect is on steroids lately! I wind up with some of the most bizarre stuff.

I wonder if Elliot was jaundiced and that's why he was lying out in the sun?  Sunlight, specifically the UV spectrum, can help break down unconjugated bilirubin, but many pedestrians will just have you put the baby near a window so he'll get sunlight that way.  If the bill level is higher, the baby might be placed under bill lights or wrapped in a bill blanket. While jaundice usually makes the baby look yellow, it can make them look red, too.  Whatever, that purple color should be looked into.  If babies in the NICU turned dusky-looking, the staff would see what needed to adjusted.  

When my last child was born, she started turning orange a few days after.  She was over two weeks late so I was warned that might happen, and to call my doctor if the orange skin went below her belly button.  I mean, this kid was even more orange than Trump.  As the orange skin tone approached her belly button, I took her in and was told that she seemed fine in every other way, so I should expose her to sunlight to help purge the bilirubin from her system faster.  If that didn't work, I was to take her to the hospital

I moved a bed in the only bedroom that got a lot of sun close to the window.  When she was done nursing, I'd put her on the bed, naked, with a diaper under her.   I made sure that her head wasn't in the direct line of the sunlight and I'd sit with her, get close to her, and talk or sing to her.  If she was calm and I had to do other household things, I'd put stuffed toys, pictures, etc. on either side so she had something to look at.  I had to either move her or move the bed every 15 minutes or so to keep the sun out of her eyes.  But it worked.  The orange skin tone didn't go any farther, lightened, and retreated towards her head.  It took a few days, but she didn't have to be admitted to the hospital and no ill effects.

My second had that happen, and it wasn't a fast delivery.  She was two weeks late and the labor and delivery took awhile.  But after we took her home, she not only had tiny breasts, they secreted fluid.  She also had her first 'period', aka some bloody discharge mixed with some gelatinous stuff coming from her vagina.

I'd been warned that this sort of stuff sometimes happens, and not to worry unless it goes on for more than a day or two.  I was pretty freaked out, but the discharge only lasted for a couple of diaper changes, the same with the breast discharge.  By the time my daughter was a week old the swollen breasts were gone.  I was told that this sort of thing can happen at any time, it's more common with late infants.  Something about the maternal hormones getting in the baby's system.

My third child was even later than the second, but she wasn't affected like that.  It truly seems to be a hit and miss sort of thing.

Interesting. My first took forever to push out and he was 3 days late. I know my due date was correct since he was conceived through IUI. My second came rocket fast and he was 4 days early. I don’t think he was even bruised from the fast delivery although he was almost 9lbs.

It's kind of funny, but it looks like Elliot has some baby acne going and they've photoshopped it away in some of the pics (not all, like that black and white pic towards the end). I'd roll my eyes at it, but then I remember how bothered I was by my eldest son's very bad baby acne when he was born. Marred all his pics, but he was a cutie.

Who can help her? Anna and Mary are full time dedicated at Chris' kids, and also babysit Nathan's ones. Sarah and Teri do not help. I think Elissa and Chelsy are on their own way. Apart from that, Chelsy explained how her mom had many children in a few years, which wasn't a big deal because her hard schedule and training. Axton may be too scared to be naughty and Elliot will be trained soon.

Quiverful fundies that are the first generation likely get more help from their parents because they probably come from a family of only a few kids (example JB Duggar). But then when the second generation starts having kids every other year, you can’t get much help from grandma and grandpa because they have 15 other grandkids ages 5 and under. They shoot themselves in the foot by pushing their kids to be quiverful even though they aren’t able to help out much. I hope some 2nd gen fundies realize this and stop the baby train before it gets out of hand.

That makes sense about the Jesus protection, and also pure ignorance, of course.

Also, what you said about them crying less speaks to the myths many people have about rear/forward facing, which Car Seats for the Littles has busted: https://csftl.org/rear-facing-car-seat-myths-busted/

 

If you check out the video of the Bontrager's on Ellen Page's show "Gaycation" a few years ago, you can get a good feel for their evil: 

https://www.afterellen.com/tv/480537-gaycation-recap-1-4-usa/2

If you’re referring to the second video, it seems to have been removed?

edited to add, never mind, got it!

I keep thinking that little Elliot Rex may end up with the nickname T-Rex.  Love the name Elliot, though.

Only if it’s the t-Rex that coexisted with humans.......

My first wasn’t a fast delivery (27 hours ending in emergency caesarean) but she did have the mini period. It was a while after we came home and nobody had warned me it could happen - it absolutely freaked me out. Thank god for google reassuring me or I would have rushed her to the hospital.
