Poor mama and kiddos! Really, mamakaikai, I'm so glad that everyone is ok. And yes, good car seats are invaluable.

mamakaikai........so glad you and your lo's are okay!

I'll just be quick while I have a minute. Ainsley is 4 weeks old today and it seems like our sleep is getting worse and worse. DH is going back to work on Tuesday and I'm not sure how I'll function or how much longer I can go without sleep. At this point I would happy with 2 hour stretches as long as she would nurse and then go back to sleep. It's taking me a minimum of a hour to get her back to sleep everytime she wakes up......she'll sleep for 1.5 or 2 hours and then it takes me at least an hour but sometimes up to 3 hours to get her back down to sleep. Then we repeat in another 1.5 to 2 hours........so tired! The other night I pumped a bottle and dh fed her and she slept for 4 hours but we gave her a bottle the next night and it was only a 2 hour sleep. After she had the bottles she seemed to be really fussy and unhappy at the breast so I don't really want to overdo it there. She starts the night in her basinet and then comes in with me but nothing I do seems to get her sleeps any longer or get her going back to sleep quicker.

mamakaikai! Super scary. That's the very last thing I'd want to deal with right now, so sorry that happened.

Thanks for all the love and support mamas! It was scary, I was shaking uncontrollably and the colours were so vivid I was so full of adrenaline. I'm so grateful we were all safe and the seat belts were properly fastened. I might be 7 weeks postpartum, but those pp hormones sure make for some intense emotions! Or is that just what life with 2 babes will be like from now on?!

glad you guys are alright...i know those scary emotions. We got into a wreck on a very icy road when my oldest was 5 days old...I'm forever thankful for good carseats and the car seat inspectors who help out new moms...and I'm forever thankful for metal gaurd rails on the side of roads...I still shudder to think what could have been without that gaurd rail there.

definitely not what you want to be feeling PP!

I'm extremely over diligent about proper carseats and proper buckling.
