Fairymom - Im borrowing a Medela Lactina from my local WIC program. DO you have a WIC program near you? I cant imagine pumping using a manual. SUCKS about the lawnmower!!! Dawn just got hers stolen too!!
to all the ones with sick babies
momma2bek - Her hair is getting progressively redder and redder and her roots are blonde! I hope it doesn't lose the thickness, its just like mine! And holy crap, I cant believe a DDC baby is TWELVE weeks old!!!!
Emma - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Too bad I dont go further than a few miles from the hospital or else Id hunt you down in SF for some hugs and coffee!
Shine - great job pumping!!!! I think youre storing it fine! Did someone post freezing info? Hold on... from kellymom http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/milkstorage.html
I think those medela freezer bags are 6 bucks for 25 or something. I liked those because you can freeze 6 oz or so flat in the freezer so they dont take up too much room.
As for the love thing, Im there too. Every single time DH even squeezes my hand I snap "Ugh! Im NOT IN THE MOOD!!!" and dd1 is driving me crazy, whining every single second. But you know what? Were allowed to have those times and it will get better!!!
Sometimes I think that its not love Im lacking but energy. I literally am expending all my energy on dd2, I have NONE to give to DH or dd1. ITs sad, but well all recover.
goodmomma - I LOVE diaperswappers, Im sure you can find a great mei tai on there!!
fisck - back to work already?! You worked all the way til delivery too, youre an inspiration!!!
racie - no advice, just
Youll make it!! DH will be home soon before you know it! Do you have friends you can ask for help?
bodhi - Im glad your days got better, nothing like a babies smile to make it better!!
michelle - I dont know if these are bpa free but I saw them at target http://www.target.com/Easy-Baby-Food...e=1&rh=&page=1
Mel - Oh no!! I hope the mastitis clears up FAST!!!! I LOVE the pics!!!!! ANd you made me gag with the nose sucker comment but then I remembered I got some of dd1s throw up in my mouth once, I guess snot isnt much worse!
MsShell - I LOVE the pics of Terran! I love the "2 months old" pic his lips pressed together, reminds me of a cute frog. Dd2 does the same thing
nancy - Zach is going to be so popular, tons of friends!!! Did he get to put his feetsies in the water?
kate - 8am?! Thats awesome!! How long of a stretch is she sleeping for now? Youre posts have been shorter and shorter, hope youre doing ok.
As for the Vit D. Im learning that it also helps in the absorption of other vitamins like calcium.
SO keep this to yourselves (we dont want to jinx it) but tomorrow we might try and start teaching Sophia to bottle feed!!!
ait! No jumping for joy, I dont want to jinx it!
Our nurse actually said she thinks Sophias going to head over to the next set of nurseries, the Special Care Nursery soon. This nursery is where babies go when they are going to be discharged soon. They even have a family sleep room that we can "practice" with our baby, spending the night but getting up and talking to the nurses or docs if we have any questions.
Ok Im going to keep the rest to myself, when its the right time, ill spill ALL the great news to you guys!!!
Trying, for the 3rd day, to make a grocery list. sigh
