I have A Drink, usually while I am breastfeeding in the evenings, and I don't worry about it. I think in the Dr Newman book, he suggests drinking a glass of wine if your baby is colicky - not bc the wine helps the baby, but bc it relaxes the parent who has to comfort the baby. It DOES help.
Yep. Agreed. I'm not having wine/beer everyday but lately-- am wanting a beer to relax for the pending fussy time. I'm also immersing myself in a good book series so I've been even looking forward to nightine rocking and nursing non-stop. L is pretty mellow though-- DD1 was much worse I think. It's hard to know tho because I was so clueless!
Having a Kenny Bunkport Pumpkin Ale now! It's so good. I usually get a few sips before it makes me tired and I pass it to DH though. Ha!
Oh mama!!! So sorry. You're almost there! If it's any consolation-- I really miss feeling Lillian inside and keep getting phantom kicks. Then I run my belly affectionately and realize... Ooh. She's not in there. That's weird.
