What would you eat for breakfast if you were
1- allergic to eggs
2- avoiding gluten/wheat
3- are not a huge fan I oatmeal.
Hmm... Maybe I should just suck it up and eat the oatmeal.
Of course my 2 year old has always been aware of when her little sister is nursing, and sometimes this would trigger her wanting to nurse as well.
Now, my 8 month old has been realizing when I am nursing her older sister! She's crawls super fast to me and climbs all over me and whimpers with jealousy... Lol! Never thought I'd see the day, honestly!
Yesterday, she climbed on top of her nursing sister and started trying to suck on the same boob that was already being nursed from. Haha!
Anyone have any funny tandem nursing stories?
So last night I got my diaper bag ready, lay out everyone's clothes, and even put on the crock pot with oatmeal we could have for breakfast.
Lo and behold it's 10 am, I'm all dressed and Chloe is still in bed. She's so fast asleep, I even went in there to make a little bit of noise hoping she would wake up, she just stirred and rolled over and went back to sleep! Ha! I wish she'd do that every time she stirred. Lol I just don't have the heart to wake her up! :( this just never happens and I can't make myself wake her up!
I guess we weren't meant to go today, we will try to go next time!
Anyone here go to la leche league meetings?
My husband feels like we would be "lying" if we told our kids there was a Santa. On the other hand, I do feel kids do need to foster their imagination, believe things are magical, and I feel like Santa is a part of this.
What do you teach/plan on teaching your kids?
Also, if your kids do believe in Santa, how do you balance the "real" meaning of Christmas vs the materialized part of Christmas?
They don't know if she ran away, or if she's with someone... I just can't imagine the heartbreak and the pain and sadness her mother must be going through.
You hear about these things all the time on the news, but never do you imagine it could be your child. All day, I have just been thinking how crazy I would be if I did not know where one of my kids were at. My kids are still babies, and they're with me all the time. It must be so hard to watch them grow and have to slowly let go, and then just trust that no crazy people go near them!
Augh! I am so sorry to vent here ladies. It's just such a scary reality. Please hold and hug your babies, and let them know at every moment that you LOVE them so that they will never run away. :(
She used to be very chill, relaxed, and she was what I called my "easy baby." Lol- she slept great, didn't mind being changed, or bathed, or whatever.
Anyway. She gets so angry lately, if I take away something she shouldn't be holding, or if we stop doing something she really likes. She all of a sudden hates getting dressed. Like screams her lungs out.
She arches her back and flings herself backwards. I feel like I may drop her! I have to keep my hands behind her head, or if she's sitting I have to keep pillows behind her.
She just seems to get SOOO angry, and she's harder to settle than she used to be.
I know it's probably nothing, and that she is just growing up, or teething, but I just feel like this started so suddenly and it doesn't seem like "her."
Anyone else's baby go through this? Thank you!
From the time I realize she's getting tired, to the time she falls asleep, it's usually like 2 hours! I am rocking her, nursing her, holding her, repeat, repeat until she falls asleep. If I lay her in the bed, she cries. And CIO is no option for us. A part of me feels like I am not doing her any favors by having her "rely" on me to fall asleep, but I know I'm not going to have her crying in her bed.
Please tell me I'm just having an off day in my way of thinking...! I'm so exhausted and mentally drained from the week. She's probably teething. She's been such an easy baby up to now!
On a side note, I know I can wear her but my ergo hurts my back! It's hard to mess up how to put that on correctly, but maybe I'm not wearing her correctly in it.?!
Thanks for letting me vent here. I'm just tired today, I think. ! :)
Like I am hungry STARVING ALL the time!!
I eat a big breakfast, and then I'm starving an hour and a half later. I run out of ideas on what to eat, because I can't be cooking all day.
It's been like this for a couple months now. I am EBF my 5 month old- no bottles or paci yet.
I find myself having to be constantly eating all day, and it's exhausting trying to keep up with myself, plus my 2 kids!
What do y'all do to keep your energy?
I feel really sick when I don't eat. Like I get dizzy to the point I qcan't drive, I get numb in my face or hands. And I have a history of fainting, so I really have to keep up with myself and stay constantly healthy.
And to top it all off I have a gluten-intolerance so I can't eat bread or pasta!! So the main thing that is "filling," I can't eat!
Chloe has been fighting her nap lately, sometimes up to 2 hours! Yesterday we skipped her nap entirely and then she slept 13 hours at night. She normally sleeps 9 or 10.
And she wasn't fussy all evening like I thought she would be, she actually did very well. So I'm not sure if she's ready to ditch the nap? I know it's kinda young for her to do that so I'm not sure what to do
