I was very nervous about posting the story, but I kind of had to. I halfway expected to be flamed
I've been blessed to have had not one single NIP confrontation...but if/when my turn comes, I will remember you and speak up and speak loudly!!
Peace: How are you feeling? Hope you are hanging in there!!
Jusie with Kaia, Birthmomom with Henry, and CDwoodard with Alex: on the sleep thing. I am right here in the thick of it with you guys. Molly sleeps at night, but wakes every hour to hour and a half looing for either some nursing or a pacifier. The longest unbroken stretch of sleep I have had in a long time is 2 hours. DH sleeps in the room with DS now so that he can be functional at work. I have to admit, though, that its nice to know there are a few of us AP moms in the same boat. I don't worry so much that it is my fault that she wakes up so much. I am trying to read NCSS to figure out if there is something I can do to encouage at least one 4-5 hour stretch each night. I think the pacifier might be the culprit. We'll see if we can start to pull it away a bit.
Jusie: congtats on the yeast victory!! And is Kaia's monkey really named Josh??!
Applecore: thanks for the herbal infusion suggestion!
Playamama: glad the visitors came to you for once!! Hope it was a lot of fun!
birthmommom: no words of wisdom for you and your sis. Just keep in mind that there are a LOT of societal pressures to bottle feed instead of nurse, and, while it would be nice if we were all strong enough to resist the pressure, it is still a LOT of pressure, and it is great that the LO at least got colostrum and other good early milk!!
Helen: sorry about the weekly poo thing!! I have always had multi-poops a day kids, so i can't relate at all! I'll admit it!
Jezzy, great pics of Ashlee! Hope her naps get a bit better!!
Oh, for those who were confused: the "vanilla matrix with pralines" is a reference to my little tantrum about being too vanilla last month. Rynna suggested that, even if I might be a bit vanilla here and there, it was more like a vanilla matrix with pralines...and THAT is plenty interesting!! Not boring at all!!:
