I live in a mixed family.I have two boy's and my SO has two boys,and I am pregnant.His kids I adore.I just have one concern.His kids started going to daycare.Well they are seriously sick ALL THE TIME NO JOKE.I am really having a hard time dealing with my LO getting sick from my SO kids.Plus I am always sick,not fun while pregnant.
I know that this is building the immune system but gee do they really need to be sick this much?What I don't get is that the mother works at night as a bartender,and puts her kids in daycare during the day.Her ex my SO works at home plus has money from a settlment so he can watch the kids during the day until his older one is old enough for school.But she says they need to learn sign language and such.I have yet to see them doing sign language.
I might just be over reacting but,its really under my skin.I was told by there mom not to give them CLO or SA.She went to school and is a RN but not working in that yet so she is very mainstream! There kids are on antibiotics all the time,or having ear infections to the point the little one had to get tubes.Yet they still give these kids milk out of bottles,and they were fed soy formula.
Now onto the new baby I will have it in the fall,and I will for sure be breastfeeding as I did my LO.But I don't want to worry about a new baby being sick all the time,and getting RSV.
