Right!! DD will turn 4 right after he's born, but its still crazy. We sleep through the night, they are potty trained and they play by themselves. Its gonna be different having a newborn around again

I had to take a "prenatal/breastfeeding class" today. I understand that everyone up here is pro breastfeeding, but it was just ridiculous. It went on saying about how BF babies are smarter than FF babies and that FF babies are always sick and don't look as good as BF babies.



BOTH of my kids were FF babies. They are WAY too smart for their own good. Not sick very often and idk what they meant by "don't look as good."

I don't either. I just sat back and laughed on the inside.



I really hope I don't have to sit through another one of those

Wow, that's such an over generalization! I get that studies show various reasons why bf is better for baby but that doesn't make the opposite true if you ff. these people obviously don't grasp the idea that a correlation is not a conclusion! I was a ff baby and have multiple degrees, multiple certifications, speak a couple different languages, and have always been in the top 10% of my class. Something tells me ff didn't hurt my intelligence. Now I am borderline diabetic despite an excellent diet and staying fit/active do maybe it did influence my metabolism, lol

My totally bf baby is asthmatic, gets pneumonia 3 times a year, and is anaphylacticly allergic to penecilin. There really does have to be some genetic predisposition that they aren't really talking about.

haha. The other girls in the class were all first time moms. I wanted to be like, I understand that we need this class, but its NOT true. They were all listening to her like she was the only person in the world who knew about BFing.

DS1 never really gets sick. The common cold once a year maybe. DD had ear infections and salmonella poisoning when she was a few months old. But other than that, nothing major.

This bed rest thing is showing some perks :) my six year old has learned how to make simple meals like cereal, dish out yogurt, make a sandwich. Both he and my 4 yr old dd have learned how to do the laundry, bringing it to me to fold, then they put it away. They've learned to wipe down surfaces, put dishes away and load the dishwasher. And when I need eyes on the situation I just give my son my phone and he takes pics of the house for me so that I can use the Iva to give them better directions. It seems this is turning out reasonably well! :D

That is awesome!!! My MIL had my kids cleaning this morning. They wiped down the bathroom and DS1 vacuumed.
