    I need to vent for a moment: I can not stand that no matter how many times I explain to my family members about how to ‘care for my milk’ it gets abused! I only work 3 6hr days and I just don’t think they get it, or just don’t care. I want to be nice because they’re helping us out! Yesterday I came home to a 5oz bottle sitting on the table. I asked my brother-in-laws girlfriend how long it’s been out and she said; oh a while, I haven’t had time to put it away. I sniffed and had to dump it. I thaw the milk they need for the day and either they need more or they didn’t have enough, I’m going crazy!

    kinta – My two year old loves books. We also do coloring or he even has his toys that he plays with. Play doh is also an option.

    Bri-His naps are so short because he won’t sleep.He used to sleep for an hour maybe even 2hrs sometimes 3 x a day. He just wakes up crying now. At night he will not go back to sleep unless he nurses…it has to be for comfort bc he sucks for like a minute. I don’t mind doing this I am just worried I will have big problems later on with this. I usually bring him into bed with us during the night and just nurse him when he wakes in bed. Last week he was sleeping 4 hr stretches but now he is back to his hourly routine. What time do you put your lo to bed? Should I feed him more often during the day? Right now I am nursing him every 2-3 hrs on one side until he pulls off(anywhere from 5-10 mins) does this sound like enough??

    seuban0 – I’m so sorry. You never want to hear that about any of your friends. Didn’t something similar happen with his ex? He just sounds like he really shouldn’t be in a relationship cause he can’t stay in it. Have you talked to him about it? I’m sure you don’t but maybe you have the wrong information? *Trying to give him the benefit of the doubt for a little while.* Good Luck sweetie. I think I might end up in jail if my husband ever did anything like that.

    So I wrote this huge thing about depression and pms and such. Well, my stupid computer crapped out while I was rereading what I wrote. Ugh! Switched to another computer. I don’t know why I use that one instead of this one. Probably cause I like that keyboard better. HAHA! I know I’m lame. Anyways, I got my period back at 9 months with Chris. I’m hoping that I wait a little longer this next time because well the longer I don’t have it the longer I can’t get pregnant. HAHA! During my phantom PMS I like do low key things. We go to the park and get all tired out. We watch a bit of TV and so forth. I avoid people but I need to keep Chris involved because well he needs to run off energy. If he gets out then he’s less likely to ignore me when I ask him to do something which is incrediably annoying. I hate yelling and he hates it when I do but sometimes I just can’t help myself. During those one or two days a month I rely a lot on Joe. He gets home and I’ll hand Chris off. I need space. If it’s the weekend I take every opportunity to have the inlaws over so they’ll play with the kids and I can just be a loner. HAHA! To me, it’s better to have PMS without the bleeding then with it! HAHA! Oh and not cramps either. I find that I think a lot about our problems too. So during our nightly prayers Chris and I talk about all the things we are blessed to have. We truly are blessed and those stupid little things that get to me aren’t really that bad. I ask for forgiveness and the ability to parent how I want to. After the boys are in bed I’ll take a bath and recope for the following day. Pretty much just deal and know it’ll be over in a couple days.

    LC-they may be concerned she isn’t getting enough milk so I’d recommend doing a little kangaroo care which is getting her down to a diaper and you topless and wrapping blanket around you both or if you have a wrap like a moby wrap slip her into that. She’ll stay nice and warm and being that close to your breast will encourage her to eat even if it’s while she’s sleeping.

    I guess I am kind of on that EASY routine without knowing it! He always eats as soon as he wakes up no matter what. Sometimes he goes right back to sleep, but recently not so much. So then he is awake seeming to be fighting sleep; until he gives in and goes to sleep. Then we repeat…..all day and night.

    Its amazing how different parenting styles are in siblings. Talking to dh’s brother today, their little girl is 15 weeks, and we were talking about giving them food. He came out with well the first thing you do is put a rusk in their bottle, that is this month for us I think. Too which my DH replied no you do not do that at all, the WHO doesn’t reccommend you start solids until 6 months. We had started James when he was about 5 1/2, DH’s brother then said yeah think we did it then with out first. I distinctly remember them starting at about 15 weeks. They believe in CIO, we don’t. They believe in smacking, we don’t. Its amazing to think they are brothers at times. We have recently just been away with them in the caravan and it just opened my eyes. Some mornings I would see their son eating chocolate before breakfast could have been his breakfast. I don’t think there is anything wrong in a little bit of chocolate every so often but for breakfast no.
