Just because you can eat Velveta doesn't mean that it's an actual food..

 

How are you today Nicole?  Nursing still going well?

post #2242 of 3384

..Yeah, Conner doesn't look so sure about having a sister in the picture you posted.  I suspect that it will work itself out because he's so young.  Supposedly if your kids are less than 2 years apart there is less jealousy, but who knows for sure..

Thinking about you Nicole! I am expecting my fourth and they are all two years apart and I will say that they are best friends and love each other (though yes they aren't perfect and argue too). Siblings are a huge blessing! My daughter zi had the hardest transition when Nochy was born, but they giggle and play all day long now.

Velveta appears to be as much a food as any other cheese.

Nicole, none of my kids were interested in the you gets until they became fun.

That makes me feel better. He had a massive meltdown tonight when I wouldn't put her down to pick him up.

Nursing is still going well. The whole, "I think she's hungry." even though I just fed her has already started. A nurse even said it after I had literally just told her she had literally just eaten. O.o

Nicole! She's SO beautiful! When can you go home? I'm thrilled she's here and safe and sound.  And a fabulous nurser, too, bonus.  I hope you heal super fast!
 

Abra, that sounds like a great plan, again I'm so sorry about the puppies.

 

Ash, I will revolution with you as soon as I STTN.


Amanda.  Oh my dear Amanda.  I am shocked and appalled and deeply sad to hear the inexcusable lack of support from your friends and family right now.  I know part of that is because you haven't told many people but the thought of your own father being MAD at you? I mean... is this some kind of a joke?  You are his precious daughter and you are in pain.  There is only one acceptable response from him and that is tenderness and empathy and open arms.  If he has difficult emotions around the breakup, that's for him to process on his own/with his friends/whatever.  You are the priority here.  I remember when I had my heart-ripping, earth-shattering breakup w/my fiance almost 6 years ago I had a couple friends who cried to ME about how much THEY missed him.  They are no longer friends, just fyi.  Anyone who isn't holding space for you in their arms and in their hearts and providing boundless empathy and support (and casseroles, duh) has not earned your friendship.  I'm sick at the thought of you losing all your friends after your first divorce.  Listen: life is hard.  Life is HARD.  We are all doing our best here.  There are people out there who aren't but this group here, this community of women we've found here, we are ALL doing our freaking BEST.  Anyone who is not with you in the arena, fighting for you and supporting you, has not earned the right to have an opinion on your situation.  Anyone on the sideline casting judgment is only belittling themselves.  I can also guarantee anyone who would dare judge or alienate you right now has things in their own lives that are too painful to face; disengaging from their own intolerable issues and judging you is the only way some people can cope.  It's pathetic.  Refuse to believe it.  You are forging an honest life and living authentically, you are being courageous and vulnerable, and everything you're doing is worthy of support, respect, and endless love.

Babies very well might be hungry just a few minutes after they get done eating..  Milk days days to come in and a newborns stomach is very small.  Just nurse whenever she seems to want to, that's the best way to regulate your supply.  As for jealousy, we didn't really experience any here and mine are 27 months apart..

 

Sara,  These are the ingredients of Velveta:

 

Milk, water, milkfat, whey, milk protein concentrate, whey protein concentrate, sodium phosphate; contains less than 2% of: salt, calcium phosphate,lactic acidsorbic acid as a preservative, sodium alginatesodium citrate, enzymes, apocarotenal (color), annatto (color), and cheese culture.[4]

 

Just because something used to be a milk product, does not mean that it hasn't been processed to high hell.  The cheese that I buy has milk, cheese cultures, salt and enzymes.  What is 'milk protein concentrate' anyway?  I'm pretty sure that Velveeta never goes bad either, I like food that molds.  The FDA wouldn't even allow them to call their product a  "Pasteurized Process Cheese Spread," because it contains 'milk protein concentrate.  (according to Wikipedia)

It's the protein from milk, concentrated. And it's delicious with Rotel.

Yes, but can you make it at home or does it require a science lab?

It requires a filter

I'm all about better living through chemistry.

Sara, quit threatening to be friends with people. And eat.

Amanda, quit biting your nails.

Abra, I do nurse on demand. I gave birth to a little suckling though, literally. She's already a professional paci sucker. It was the only way I could get her off my boobs. She's obsessed. There's a difference between a hungry baby and a not hungry baby. I can't stand when everyone and their brother constantly ask me/tell me my kid is hungry. smile.gif

People did it ALL the time with Conner. Every time he cried, they'd ask. No one in DH's family has BF, so none of them have any faith in it. I was told on numerous occasions that I had skim milk with him and that it wasn't enough for him so I should give him more fatty formula.

In other news, my milk started coming in. Yay!

Stop it everyone, stop getting along!

 

Glad to hear about your milk Nicole, that was fast!
