Rozzie - hope you got a nice date night on your vacation :)
RE: bottle feeding: I take a bottle with me when we go to town to go groc shopping or go to the feed store. If she starts sceaming during the car ride, I can feed her or one of the girls can by holding the bottle. So far only done that twice and the results have been mixed.
Think the nipple is too slow for her now, so going to switch over to the born free one I bought. I really love my glass bottles I have though. Anyways, MLOG you have totally been a trooper with the whole bf'ing thing. To tell you the truth with my previous three even one or two milk blisters would have had me quitting faster than I care to admit.
I say your mama intution is a-ok and you'll know the right time :)
She is TWO MONTHS OLD TODAY! This is just going way too fast. She smiles and coos a lot. I just love this child so much. I don't know if it was this intense with the others (lol probably cause I love them so much today as well) but I just adore her.
How is cloth diapering going for every one? I think we are on 2 weeks of straight CD now and I have to say - going just fine. I love to third a preemie/small prefold and stick it in a thirsties and be done with it. Totally stealing Sarah's idea for the fleece covered elastic...cause I dont really like Snappi's and..pins are scary!
Sandy sent me the most useful blanket! That Anais and Aiden blanket came a few weeks ago and I love how light weight it is. Great for nursing and just general summer blanket. we had our first 70 degree day here yesterday so it was handy. lol
I have made it two months breastfeeding now. I am really proud of myself...It isnt even that big of deal, but I am proud. My hormones are under control (super B complex thank you~) and with the help of the nipple shield, I just latch her on - feed her and it is more conveieant than a bottle! Shes so chunky too!
Beginning Dr Atkins diet today...Yes, I am sure that will bring the boo'ing and hissing from a few of you...but I have done it in the past and felt sooo good and there are so many yummy recipes now. ;) I am way more vegetarian than carnivore, but I can still do it cause of all the vegetables and cheese allowed on diet. The next two weeks will be tough though because veggies are limited to two cups a day until your body switches over.
So today for breakfast, an omelette with some cheese and spinach and a couple mushrooms. Wish me luck...I really need to get about 75 pounds off - 100 would have me singing "I'm too sexy" permanently. LOL
Also doing a 3 mile walk today.
Every one be blessed!
