I have my moments of feeling frustrated, especially with some of Baby A's gymnurstics and serious nursing ADD, but overall I am really enjoying our breastfeeding relationship. I've only had 2 hiccups in 8 mths: a small milk bleb, resolved very nervously with a sterilized needle point, and a stressful long night where it felt like I had no milk which was the result of a low water consumption, not eating enough day. Her hunger and poor sleep worried and quickly got me back on track so the following day was filled with oats and plenty of water!
i've had 2 periods so far, one came about 4 mths pp when she randomly slept through the night once and had a few longer night sleeps and also slept thru once or maybe twice based on the 5hr stretch definition. My second period came last month. Wish it would stay away much much longer!
I've been trying to incorporate these.suggestions, thanks for sharing kellybeth!
She is crawling but not fully on her knees, more like a half pull, half crawl, like she's scaling a horizontal building or something, lol. She does get on her hands and knees and rock backward and forwards tho like she's preparing to shoot off. She pulls up to standing on her own, has started 'talking' again (had started saying dadadada nanana baba and then abruptly stopped again), and is on the verge of waving hi.
In general she's just a gorgeous bundle of laughter, giggles, gurgles, foot chomping ball of fun - when she's not trying to screamtimidate me, most often to set her free from her chair or swing (having to minimize wearing her not only due to her increasing weight but also because of some back pain which I probably caused myself with improper posture, sigh)
Very happy about the FB group, thanks KB!
