one more-I have no idea. :)
I did have a couple of thoughts about nursing, though.
When I am making my freeze ahead meals, I'm going to go really, really easy on the wheat and dairy. I've had one that couldn't tolerate any wheat in my diet whatsoever, and one who would be fussy in the evenings if I had dairy. I so do not want to repeat that. Those crying babies ARE SO hard. I remember that, too, and also feel a little gunshy.
As I am reading everyone's experiences, and thinking back to my own, though, it might be worth all of us just putting in a little mental note that it *might* be that way. It doesn't mean that we are failing as mama's, and it doesn't mean that our babies aren't perfect. It's just an opportunity for us to be their protector and advocator from the very start, and a chance to figure out a little more of who they are. I'm going to try, really hard, next time I'm trying to comfort a hysterical small baby in my own sleep deprived state, to remember just that.
And, in all that stocking up. Plenty of nursing pads. If are someone with an oversupply (like me), whew. With my first baby, I would completely soak through one every hour or two for about the first two months. After that it slowed a little, but I would still need to change them every two hours all the way until my baby was a good 9 months old or so. It was crazy. I've not had it quite like that with any others, but that first one, wow. :)
