My boys have always had dolls, but just hand me downs from their sisters. They just have a couple inexpensive cloth dolls from friends, but they love them! It's so cute to see my younger ds shusshing a baby to sleep
It would just be so much easier if we were able to bf directly from me, but due to our issues I hold her and bottle feed ebm, and then I have to sit there for another 20-30 min and pump.. and by then she's ready to eat again... it's non stop, and so hard to do with 4 other kiddos running around...
It really bothers me that there is such a level of willful ignorance about basic breastfeeding facts among the medical profession.
They always seem genuinely suprised when you haven't even started cereal or something like that by 4 mos around here... SO annoying that the patient seems to have to educate the Dr.
