AAAhh! DON'T ANYBODY RUIN IT FOR ME!!!! La la la, I'm not listening!!!
I'm only just done with season one
About the nursing, thanks to all of you for caring so much and for having so many wonderful ideas. Yeah, I have thought of/tried/looked into just about all of those in my quest to cope with my boy
Emmy, that was a good point about the solids though. He skips for a few days at a time, but it's not because I'm not offering, he's just not interested. So then, he must get frustrated with my supply being a bit lower all around from the days when he does do solids. That makes sense that he would nurse soooo much.
Right now we do homemade babyfood. He eats potato and spinach, apple sauce, carrots, and random things like rice, oatmeal, and whatever is on my plate. But some days he just doesn't want any. Maybe I should take the stinky-poop plunge and start meat? During the day he nurses about every 2-3 hours at least, if not more.
I'm a bit torn about where to have him sleep, 'cause I think you're right Davina, I have no idea how to co-sleep without letting him nurse. Aside from duct tape on my nipples of course!
Bama--We actually didn't start co-sleeping till quite recently with the new king sized bed, because he does like his own space. He sleeps no better or worse now
: but I at least don't have to get up, most of the time.
I LOVED your pictures! You guys are such a pretty family!
Selena--welcome back and good luck with summer school!
Meli--I am so sorry to hear about your house hope woes!
What a let down!
On another note:
When do babies start to understand the word "no"? Right now it's cute that he understands "bonk" and "eye", but when I get my stern voice on and say "no" he pauses and then giggles.
And, Who's got Mother's Day plans?
