I don't feel I have a connection to J as I did/do with C. C would never let anyone hold her. She only wanted me. She always was nursing too. We had this bond that was amazing. J doesn't care. Anyone can hold him and he could care less. Sometimes he doesn't even want me to hold him, he screams and screams until someone else holds him and he stops. I don't get it. We are not bonded. I don't feel as close to him?
Ericka, I am bf-ing, but Ds is a very different baby than DD. Unless he wants to nurse, he is just happy to be held by anyone who wants to hold him.Now I wonder if some of my "first time mom" protectiveness of DD was actually *her* need/desire to be only with me. Every baby is different, every bond is different, and even if my children were exactly the same, I can't be the same kind of mother because there are two now.
GTG, Ivy-- When DD was 1.5, her sitter didn't show up before class one day, so I put her in a back carry and taught the class that way... she did well until the last ten minutes, when she started SHOUTING "Nuhsss! Nuhsss! Nuhsss!" That was fun.
Hope to see everyone on the LWAB thread!
