And yes, I totally understand US is way more than "do nothing" but the point is few people know what US is and so they have a stereotypical idea that the kid just runs wild at home. Yes, that is so simple. I get it! And, when I read snark about US, that is EXACTLY...

It's interesting to me how many people still assume your child must be taking a day off from "school" when you have him at the store/dentist/library/park with you on a "school" day. Is having kids at home still a surprise to people?? It happens a LOT now that DS is 7. He usually says, "I don't go to school." And I don't add a *thing* to that statement!
Seriously! Sheesh! So tired of people wasting their energy bashing the way my kids learn. I don't bash their choices. Why do they feel they need to bad-mouth ours? I just. Don't. Get. It. Then again, it *is* their energy to waste. And, here I am wasting mine typing this out... Carry on!

s I am right there with you. I have been block feeding for a few days now. I am going for about 5-6 hours on each side.

I was also pumping for DH and have stopped doing that until we can determine what is going on. DH used a frozen bottle of milk last night and noticed DS2 was fussy right after--it was a bottle expressed prior to beginning this process and...
Ow, sorry, mama. Sounds very uncomfortable. I used nipple shields to heal my cracked and bleeeding nipples this itme around. After three really troubling beginnings (DS1, DD, and now DS2), I was able to get past the extreme pain by inserting the shields in my bra, which really just keep everything from touching the nipples, and lathered them with pure lanolin. It took at least a week for them to be completely better, but the pain was diminished right away. I made sure...
