I agree with your suggestion about removing names from the list. I didn't realize how long it was til I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled just to get past the first post!Julia
I'm glad you're getting past the guilt of supplementing with formula. It's super hard, but you know you're doing the best you can for Ollie. You're a great mama!
I've been busy fighting with my husband.
The worst fights we've ever had in almost 15 years. Ugh this baby is so stressful. The Prevacid isn't working. I'm hoping she has a urinary tract infection. I know that sounds awful but it would explain her crying uncontrollably every time she pees, her general crankiness and why she goes through 20-30 diapers a day. Calling the ped first thing in the morning.
There's good news though! My neighbor is an awesome woman who took care of my dogs while I was in the hospital having Mathilde. I was wearing M in the Moby the other day while talking to her and she casually mentioned that she used to wear her babies 25 years ago and that she got her sling from LLL. She used to babysit my other neighbor's kids and they consider her family b/c they're so close. I just asked her if she'd consider watching M for a few hours a day and she said yes! Then she told me that she has a degree in early childhood development, used to watch all the kids in the neighborhood, breastfed her kids 2-3 years each... OMG I feel so lucky! I don't know what to pay her though. I asked & she said that's based on what I can afford & she's not doing it for the money. Well I can't actually afford anything since I live on loans, but I want to pay her fairly. Any ideas? I live in the south, about 1.5 hours from a major city. I couldn't find any child care info on Monster.com, so I don't even know what the range is. I'm considering this an investment toward getting my degree, b/c I'll actually have time to write.
DH still wants a Wii.
