yeah more mamas!OMG, if I could take a walk by myself or with sleeping dd in her wrap it would be Ssssoooo wonderful. I've gotten to do it once. The weather up her in the great northwest is so rainy right now. Yesterday dh and I took the kids to the park and although it was sunny the wind chill kept us from staying out more than an hour.
Grocery shopping: what a joke. I ended up going on my own with just dd (10 wks) last week in the wrap which she loves... normally. SHe was not having it. I haven't got nursing down with the wrap and she was soo mad. The florist let me use her office cause it was a private place to sit. Helpful yes- I get so frustrated when one of my kids is upset in a public place and every other stranger has a little extra comment (rarely helpful) to add to my already fragile mama ego
: after she settled down and I said thank to the nice florist she was like, "why do you think she gets that way?" I said I wasn't sure but she needed something she wasn't getting at the time but she's happy now
: then the florist told me that when her kids were little and cried like that and she couldn't take it anymore, she stuck em in their carseat, let em cry and went outside.
ummm "I'll keep that in mind thanks (NOT)....but dd doesn't really like the carseat and I find that she responds better to me holding her." She was very nice but we were not on the same wave length ykwim.
iloveavery- My ds (2) is doing the fake cry too!!!! The first time he did it, I thought, What the heck is that about? He doesn't do it very often, but when I he does I try and give him a little extra affection and that seems to keep it at bay for a while. He still takes a bottle
I breastfed till he was 16 months but he was also supplemented with goats milk (which is what he still drinks now) since he was 3 weeks old. I want to end the whole bottle thing but He love it so much and with this whole regression to babyhood thing- I can see that not going so well. I only give him one when he asks for it and that keeps it down to 2 or 3 a day. He drinks water from a cup but won't touch the goats milk unless its in a bottle. Any helpful suggestions on how to move this a long would really be appreciated. I feel bad for letting him have it this long but I don't want to just take it away "cold turkey" since we are all in such a fragile state of mind. I'd like to keep it gentle
OK done with chapter 3 of my novel-sorry I just get going and can't stop- hang in there ladies-
