He calmed right down and stopped crying. That's the first time he's done that just from hearing my voice, and it just made me melt.
Elsanne – I would be like you, I wouldn’t worry too much about it unless it interferes physically or emotionally (for her at a later date). It’s just something extra that makes her a little more of an individual!
Cori – I hear you on the missing dairy. My guy seemed fussy at about week two, so I cut out all my dairy, and my *one* cup of coffee a day. I am soooo missing them both. But, he’s not fussy anymore. There’s only one way to really confirm if dairy was the reason, and that would be to add it back to my diet, and see if he becomes fussy again. But….I’m not in any rush to do that!! I’m just now finally getting a few blocks of sleep at night. I’m willing to sacrifice my cereal and cheese/crackers for that!
Ashley – nice system you’ve got with dh!!
Sonja - big s to you!
Kate – Again, I am *wowed* by all you twin mamas (and young older babes). I won’t say, “I don’t know how you do it,” ‘cause I know you do it because there’s no other option (you’ve got two, you deal with two! You’ve got three, you deal with three! Etc., etc.). I just want you mamas to know that I to you!!
Jami – Hang in there, mama. Your little guy will get the hang of the bottle – it’ll just take some time, and some snuggles. (for him, and for you!)
Pavlina - I totally agree! DH and I have been in total amazement about our older ds ever since Nate was born. He seems so HUGE!
