    Bri, I know, but I think because she had seven girls who were all fine and just the one boy with the issue, it tends to make her gravitate more toward checking the boys more than the girls. Plus, we only have two female grandchildren, all the rest have been boys!

    my mom was really nervous about me bfing too at first. apparently her mother had low supply with her first and nearly starved him before figuring it out. my mom was afraid i wouldn’t make enough. she has become one of my biggest supporters after seeing the milk running out of isaac’s mouth the first time. now when people ask how much longer i intend to go she always tells me not to worry about them that it’s my baby and my boobs and that gives me a right to do whatever i want. also she’s commented that after seeing me nurse and isaac’s response to it she wished she would have at least tried with us. she probably would have been fine too b/c i finally figured out what happened to my grandma. she got pregnant four months pp with number two. they never had much money so her diet probably wasn’t great and between those two factors her body probably couldn’t keep up supporting both her pregnancy and her baby.

    I agree with all the other moms. Dads don’t do little babies. It hurt my feelings in the early months too. I knew dh loved us but it was like he had a hard time showing it. If you asked him he probably would say the same about me…he knew I loved him but I was so busy with baby I didn’t ‘show’ him how much I loved him very often. It got to the point that my hubby stopped even trying to get my attention. That was my wake up call. We started by scheduling sex every Sunday. It sounds silly but it was the day my husband didn’t have to worry about being turned down. I’m still not as interested in sex as I used to be, but he typically gets lucky twice a week now. It helps us reconnect and is important part of a loving relationship.

    sydneemay2009, we had to transition Ayden over to cows milk at 13mo. I was pregnant and between supply and preterm labor issues we weren’t able to nurse much longer than that. We ended up taking what was left of my freezer stash and we used that and mixed it with the cow’s milk. We started so that it was mostly my milk, and as he got used to it, we slowly changed the mix so that it had more and more cow’s milk and less and less of my milk until he was taking straight cow’s milk.

    lil tip-That is perfectly normal for a little one her age. My son did the same thing. It was every 2 hours day and night for a few weeks and then gradually he started going a little longer between feeds. Their tummies are just so little at this stage that they need those frequent meals, plus breastmilk is digested very easily so it doesn’t stay with them as long as formula. Hang in there, it does get better and is so worth it.

    Ollie was really brave for injections. James screamed the place down even though he wasn’t getting anything done.

    Wow. No one wanted to call me out on the horrible spelling of Asperger? Lol. Asperberger….I have no idea where that came from. My only defense was that I had Zoey in my lap…but still. Sorry. I promise, I’m not an idiot.

    jpeanut – I do work full time. I work just 1 mile away from home so I’m able to come home for my lunch hour (which I take when Alyssa needs her next meal) and nurse her, then play with her and head back to work. My work hours are 8-5 mon-fri. I wake up 1hr early every morning so I am completey ready to leave by 7am. I spend the next 45 minutes nursing Alyssa and playing with her then I’m out the door by 7:45am. I take my lunch at 10:50am and I’m home by 11am to feed her. Daddy gives her a bottle of BM at 3pm and that’s when I pump here at work during my break. Her next meal is at 5pm which is solids, then she gets a bath and nurses again at 7pm and is down for the night by 8pm. She will sometimes nurse at night, but she usually sleeps the whole way through. The nights he does wake up, she nurses for just a few minutes before she falls asleep again so I don’t think she’s getting more than an ounce or two. But yeah… that’s my schedule and that’s how I limit her to 1 bottle a day and work full time. 🙂

    I wanna go to the beach! But to be honest, i’m not sure if i’d enjoy it. I know that Ella would love it and that would be fantastic! But it’s too far to drive for a short time. I’d have to stay down there, which i don’t know if i’d want to. Plus, i’d have to find somewhere else to go. I always used to go to Seaside Heights and Belmar, and that has been taken over by the Jersey Shore crew. I’d definitely need a more family friendly beach, unless I want Ella fist pumping!
