    Bri – I chickened out on taking the combo pill. The day came to take the first one, and I just couldn’t do it. I’ve worked too hard for the supply I have and I can’t risk it. Thanks for the advice, it was the shock I needed. Back we go to the daily worry of taking pills on time and weekly worry of being pregnant, ugh 🙁

    jacque – I’m hungry all the time too!! When I’m at work, I swear I eat all day. To not make myself look like a cow I make comments to my coworkers about how nursing/pumping is using up so many calories that I need to eat to keep up my energy. I now I’m burning a lot of calories, but there’s no way I’m only eating the extra calories that I’m burning! lol And it’s not just that I want to eat all the time, I NEED to eat all the time!! But I weighed myself yesterday and I’m still below my pre pregnancy weight, so I guess it’s ok for now. lol

    Sometimes I wish I could take Bri, put her in my pocket, and carry her around to answer all of my questions throughout the day. I sleep through the nursing at night but I think she does eat a lot during the night because she doesn’t seem very hungry during the day. Just wondered if that was normal. Thanks! And thanks on the feedback to all who pitched in on the relationship issue. I told him he has a week to change things. I’m hoping he heard me.

    expecting-2b-patient – Personally I’d hold on juice then. As for starting solids. I subcribe to baby led weaning. This means we don’t start until the baby wants to. My son was picking smushable food up to eat. Solids the first year is for practice but if you are ‘feeding’ them mush then how is that practice? You have plenty of time. Breastmilk has all the nutrients your baby needs right now and into the second year. I didn’t have any solids until I was over a year old. I just didn’t want it and my mom didn’t push. My ped didn’t mind either since I was still gaining weight. I’ll be letting this one decide when he wants to start eating. He’s not even 4 months old yet so I have plenty of time. I hate transitioning to real food anyways. The poo changes, the schedules change, your supply changes, etc. I just like how it is now. HAHA! My oldest is 2.5 this coming month and I’m just now working on potty training and he’s still in a crib. I know he should move to a bed sometime soon but I like being able to put him to bed and know he’ll stay there. HAHA! Getting up several times a night with Alex makes me less motivated to stay up half the night with Chris.

    Just wondering, do you ladies have ‘enough milk’ for your night time feeding? I try to ‘cut DJ off’ of feedings after 6pm so he’s hungry and I have milk for him before bed. But this evening we went out real quick and I nursed a bit at 6:45pm. Then when it was bed time (8pm) he was getting pissed and wouldn’t settle down. I offered both breast and he was making grunting sounds and having a fit at my breast. So after 15mins of this I heated up 3oz of expressed, he took it and was fine. What gives? Is it because I wasn’t ‘full enough’ for him to get his night feeding?

    Well Alex lasted until 3am in his room. It was so freakin’ lonely in my room alone. But it’s ok. He did good. 3am means 7 hours asleep. Then he only woke once after that in bed with me. He slept until 8am so that’s good. It is nice that he’ll be able to sleep in his room for the beginning of the night just so I’m not sneaking around my room. It was weird to be able to put my clothes away without having to worry about waking him. HAHA!

    I think my hospital was proud and frustrated with me at the same time. I co-slept with Alex in the hospital and fed him constantly. Every half hour most of the time. They have a dry-erase board that you are supposed to write down the last feed, for how long and when the next one is supposed to by. I never did it. The nurses would come in and ask when was the last time he ate. I’d tell them, ‘I don’t know, maybe a half hour ago’. For how long, ‘I don’t know, however long he wanted.’ HAHA! He never lost weight in the hospital like most babies. Probably because I just let him be a baby. I know the reason they have the schedule. They want to make sure that the baby is eating every 2-3 hours. They also knew I knew what I was doing and just went with the flow.

    james went through a biting stage, i did the same took him off. They soon get the message. I don’t get any samples or money off vouchers if i did i’d probably give them away.

    lilmamamads – I’d take her. It’s sad but my first son is only two and been to two funerals out of town now. Flying is easy with a breastfeeding child. They nurse and fall asleep on the plane. You don’t need to buy an extra seat or anythinig. Just check the carseat. Done it many times. As for the service it’s not problem. Three months is a good age cause they’ll just want to cuddle or sit on your lap during it. Might even fall asleep. I’m sorry for you loss. It’s really hard. Might make things easier on you and the family to see the next generation with you. I know at my husband’s great Aunts funeral last summer everyone loved to see Chris runing around. I was also pregnant with Alex. It does help a bit.

    lilmamamads – I’m all about BLW!! I fell into it with my first and doing it with my second. The girls on the sixth month page think I’m weird because I started Alex off with a good meal including veggies and meat. He does really well with it too. He loves all foods and hasn’t a problem with any of it. The only things I avoid for him right now is spicy and seafood. On those days he’s fine with a strawberry toast and veggies or whatever.
