Hey ladies! How's everyone doing? I hope well. Saw the news the other day & there's a deadly flu going around, adults are dying! It's all over the U.S except in the West. Keep your babies indoors & away from sick family!

I took Carter's when he was two and he had no problem- they both exclusively breastfed & had no problems with confusion. Good luck,

Can take a while for them to get used to it.



I am waiting until at least 6 weeks to introduce paci. We had lot of issues BFing DS1 and introducing the paci too early was part of the problem. I just want to make sure feeding and my milk is completely established. Gus currently uses me as a paci... Good excuse to sit on the couch and cuddle.

Hope y'all are doing great in here! Just wanted to pop in & say hello. I'm busy busy these days!!



School started back Monday. Work starts back on the 28th.



Mallory had her 1 month check up 2 days ago. She went from 8lbs 8oz 20 3/4" at birth to being 10lbs 14 oz 21 3/4"! Her formula has been switched to soy. She's still breast feeding at each feed, as well as getting her formula. & I also think she officially has colic like her brother did! The past week 1/2 from 6pm-midnight is all crying :( except for tonight!! NO complaints but she did fabulous ALL day!

Darn the colic!



Since I cut out dairy Dexter hasn't had any more crying fits. Hope it stays that way! Him being awake at nighttime is killer enough! lol I'm sorry love :(

Luckily I DID get Mallory to switch her days & nights so she is okay there, now it's just the crying!!!! So that's why I let her just sleep with me so that I KNOW we'll get sleep but it's a terrible habit. I think I might try the bassinet or her crib again tonight & just see what happens. But at least she is awake during the day more now.



& I'm glad cutting out the dairy helped him although that has to be brutal on you!

We had a rough night last night too. He wasn't full blown crying but it was a painful wimper sound. .like gassy. . He stayed up until 4... then up by 630_7.. got an hour sleep in his rock n play so that was good. . I guess. . My back and body is so sore from holding him while I try to sleep. I'm happy for these boards though bc it is all reassuring that nothing is really wrong. . We met daddy for lunch today and now LO is asleep on my chest

He would sleep HOURS at night if I held him but DH won't allow it. It is a scary habit and I've accidently fallen asleep many of times with him on the couch, oops! I know others do it but we're not risking it. Though, I do see the couch differently as the bed lol DH is a messy sleeper. I can wake up in the same position I went to sleep in!

We'll find out in the morning if he was just figuring out a little late that he likes to eat or if there is a bigger problem.

Thank you. We go in Thursday morning for the sweat test. We'll find out later that day whether or not he actually has it.
