kel: youve had such a hard time...and ur two babies being so close....its such a risk factor with having an unsettled baby and getting PND in fact i dont know how ppl with reflux etc babies dont get PND. i too am torn between thinking E "deserves" the same that h got and the feeling bad for H cos he is missing out and just wishing he would shut up sometimes when im feeding....such a balancing act, he has regressed a bit, he wants the babys dummy etc.....man i still think biology got it wrong...men should be able to BF 2nd, 3rd babies etc....BF should take 10 minutes max 3 times a day and babies should come with thier own individualised instruction manual at birth. there is no way u can appreciate every breathing moment of newborns but i agree i remember what sonja says about them being so young....it does go qucik (altho doesnt seem like it at 3am....) i hope u have lots of support right now and ppl are doing the right thing by you. . thanks for the info re the snacking...E did that today and TBH it friggin annoys me....i just expressed it 2day and make her wait a bit as it means u cant get nothing down at all when they decide they want to graze....not to mention soggy a$$ nipples.
kismet: i wonder if u can advertise to "share" a nanny..ive known a few ppl who have done that when they couldnt get daycare and had to go back to work. it must suck not being to get into more daycare ....do they know u need the days for work ie bumping u up the list above SAHM's as per should be policy??? we just ahd a guy come and fix our computer and take all the photos off it (wedding , H etc) as its dead....they should be able to get the files off it.
grace: glad to hear bubs are still staying put.
