that I can’t tell if the pain radiating through my belly is from a bladder infection or cysts on my ovaries …… whatever it is…… it fucking hurts
Calahan …….. Orca Whales, Art, Cars, Video Games (and his girlfriend)
Noah … Legos, movies, animals in general - specifically dogs and wolves, and books …. especially if they are Lego books … Video Games/learning games
Nathan … he loves dinosaurs, video games/learning games, and lights. His favorite cartoon is Blues Clues … (Skylanders/Angry Birds/Mario)
Kaedyn,.. Math …. he loves Math, he runs around the house giving us all mini math quizzes… he likes his Trains (specifically Geo Track stuff) and his cars, he loves being read to… and he loves to be doing anything with his brothers. (Skylanders, Yoshi, Angry Birds)
With Calahan, it literally took two people to nurse him. (He had his hands next to his face at all times and it took someone to hold his hands down so I could try to get him to latch on) He wouldn’t latch, when he did it was like he was getting NOTHING… and after 3 days of screaming, and the fact he went from 8lbs 7oz to 7lbs 0oz in 3 days, I gave him formula and never went back. I did continue to try to get him to nurse, but he wouldn’t.
With Noah, he was 1lb 12oz when he was born and I pumped and pumped but I literally dried up after 3-4 weeks. We were just getting to the point where the were letting me dry nurse and we were talking about him trying to breast feed…. but …. just didn’t work out. I was doing everything to try to increase my supply.
With Nathan, he had a cleft palate and just couldn’t seem to latch on. I did pump until after we brought him home but it got to the point - for my sake, something had to give. See…. every two hours, I was get up from bed, feed him through the NG tube, change him, etc, and then I would have to pump, and then do whatever I needed to do and maybe go back to sleep for 15 minutes, if I could. So I gave up the pumping :/
With Kaedyn we didn’t really have an issue nursing but it was clear with the fact that he was constantly nursing and constantly nursing and CONSTANTLY nursing … that after a few weeks of trying to balance Nathan (who was - at 16 months - about the size of a newborn and the development of a 6 mo old) and Kaedyn (who wouldn’t put me down at all - period) … so again, I just felt like I had to make a choice. Nursing had to go once I saw how he was well more satisfied by the bottle and formula.
It made me feel like a failure. Four times I just couldn’t do it.
Thanks … we started calling him the Hobbit when he was a baby because he had such fat chunky feet that we could not find shoes for because no shoes would fit - not kidding. He didn’t get his first pair of shoes until he was about a year old and OMGosh.. LOL… that was hard to find even then!
I’m not sure, I haven’t had to cross that bridge yet.
I might take my husband too ……
And I know there will be at least two fur babies crawling into bed with us …
……….. but I think the kids are asleep ……. and maybe they’ll stay out of my bed (KNOCK ON WOOD) …….
They’re foster kids:). I have a 17, 10, 5, and 3 year old! This baby is my first pregnancy
