Dysphoric Milk Ejection Reflex

Finally, there is a name for what I've been going through! Dysphoric Milk Ejection Reflex
My friend posted this on a forum and as soon as I started to read it I began to cry. I've been dealing with this for so long now and it's nice to know that I'm not crazy, this is an actual condition and there is a name for it!
I'll be trying some of the suggested natural remedies asap.
I hope others suffering from Dysphoric Milk Ejection Reflex(D-MER)stumble upon this information so they know they are not alone and there is help.

6.5 Month Chloe Update

These kids just change so darn fast!
Well, Chloe can now sit up unassisted! She only lasts about 20 seconds or so before toppling over, but we are so excited about it and so proud!
I *think* she's been saying "Dada" but it could just be babbling..hehe. She loves to eat now! So far she's had banana, avocado, sweet potatoes, apples, squash and peas. yum! I think her favorite are the sweet potatoes.
She can actually scoot a little now! She doesn't go far...just kind of pushes with her toes, butt goes in the air and ends up rolling over.
Oh! She started making a noise with her tongue. She mimics how we call the cats. to explain the sound in text. Oh well, hopefully you know that cat calling sound..ha! Oh, she LOVES the cats so much!
She knows what jump means and will usually jump if you say "jump, jump, jump".
So she can't crawl yet but, she sure can get to what she wants. She uses a combo of rolling and short scoots. So cute.
She is really ticklish on her neck and rib area. Love her giggle!
It's funny, but she is so much more sensitive than the boys were at this age. I didn't think there would be that much of a difference between boys and girls, but there is here! We avoid loud sudden noises here...well, other than Kieran(he's a walking loud and sudden noise hahaha) but she's so use to him. He rarely scares her. If Josh shouts across the house ans Chloe is near him she will totally lose it. It's so sad! So we don't really do that anymore. Not so loud anyway. ;)
She is so great in the car now. Josh has even taken her(without me :O) on short trips to the store. She still doesn't like to be in the car anytime after 8pm.
I just can't get over how fast she is growing. It makes me sad and happy at the same time.
She is our last baby so I'm just really savoring her!
