She's "disappointed" that you're not cutting off part of his penis??
People are bizarre.
On that note, having a baby girl again (after 11 years!) reminded me how stupid the "it'll be so much easier to clean" argument for circ is. Man, cleaning a baby girl after a poop is 100 times harder after dealing with an intact baby boy. Eek.
For us - we are doing great
Maybe is 2 weeks old and is such a sweet, easy going baby. Her cues are very easy to read. She wiggles and won't nurse if she needs changed, belches reliably after every feeding (or else she spits up), and opens her mouth REALLY WIDE
when she wants to nurse, which is pretty much all the time. She loves to lay on a blanket on the floor and watch things, especially her brother. Her eyes get really big and she starts waving her arm around and pursing her lips when she sees him or hears his voice. DD1 is in love with her too, and is great about helping with her. DH is still in a bit of shock (in a good way) that he has a daughter...no girls in his family in 44 years. He adores her and put her to sleep all by himself yesterday, so he's very proud of that. I feel like our family is complete with her, so far avoided any baby blues except for a couple random crying jags. I'm prone to anxiety attacks and have had to stave a few off so far at night...but so far I can control them.
Physically I feel too good...have to force myself to take it easy or the bleeding starts again. Eating a ton to keep up with nursing, I'm back to pre-pregnancy weight and do not want to lose anymore, so I'm pounding food all the time it seems. DH is still spoiling me...he's so awesome.
her latch isn't perfect...she doesn't open her mouth as wide as it needs to be, so I have to keep on her to make sure she's not nipple nursing. Plus, she doesn't poop as much as I was used to with the other two, so coupled with her latch I'm slightly concerned about how much she's getting. She also sleeps through the night - seriously - and only wakes one or twice to nurse. She makes up for it during the day, but I'd really rather she nurse more frequently at night and am working on that, too. She seems to be gaining fine, so...I dunno.
My midwife comes by today, she's an LC as well so that will be our topic of conversation.
So that's where we're at. DS is having some trouble adjusting and is pushing limits big time for attention, lots of whining. Nothing horrendous...and DD1 had no adjustment, she's very preoccupied with her pre-teen social life.
Oh, and my SHOULDERS are killing me from the position I sleep in at night curled around Maybe! This never happened before, I need it to stop!
