I am sooo far behind on everyone! I miss you guys so much!
The boys have to be woken every 3 hours to get their dose of sodium chloride for their metabolic disorder so things have been... hectic. I say hectic but as bad as it sounds it was more like life draining up until a few days ago. Neither of them are nursing from the breast yet so that makes things even more complicated. So what I was doing was every 3 hours I would give the boys their medication, try to get them to nurse for about 5-10 minutes each, feed them expressed milk in a bottle from the feeding before and then pump so I would have milk for the next feeding. So basically I was getting 30 minutes to an hour of sleep all day and all night long.... well not really during the day because I need to be up for the day to be with my older children. Also since the boys both have a really weak suck and I have to work really hard at getting a proper latch plus I pump so much my nipples sometimes look like raw hamburger... So I have broke down and had my husband get a few cans of the dreaded F word. Yes... I bought formula. I am starting to feel a lot more human now and not so zombie like. I am still continuing to try to breastfeed and really believe once we accomplish that life will be MUCH easier, but for now I am doing what I have to do.
So now that I am getting some sleep I hopefully will be able to do other stuff, you know like come online , and get caught back up with everyone.
So basically hi everyone! I have been doing pretty crappy, how about you guys?
