How are you all doing with your little ones?? My son, John is so wonderful! He is still bfing...(8 weeks today) and gaining some weight (11lbs 8oz). And let me just say, growth spurts suck! Haha. But loving every second of being a mommy!! I just wanted to check in on all of you!
Almost the same as you!! Chloe is 9 weeks today, she's still BF'ing and I completely agree, growth spurts suck!! Haha! She was 11lbs 14ozs at her last check up, she's cooing and smiling like crazy, and she lifts her head about 3-4 inches while laying on her tummy, she's a strong little girl! I'm glad everything is going good with you and your little man!
It was REALLY overwhelming for me in the beginning, it's a really big change from 1 to 2, that's for sure! The first month was the hardest, especially since my son is in school so driving him back and forth and bringing a newborn along after a c-section really sucked, but we're much better now! Not sure I'd have a 3rd though haha!
My lil girl is 7 weeks. And she has changed so much already. She is so cute. I just can't stand it. The first month was also hard for me. My husband didn't spend time at home with us like he said he was going to. And I was extremely heart broken. I cried constantly. My husband is having a hard adjusting. He is frustrated that we don't get to eat dinner together anymore. And we don't get to just sit and relax together either. I am still breast feeding. Its going really well. I went back to work this week and I take Samantha to Daycare that is actually conveniently in the same building that u work in. It is so hard working and having a baby. I keep thinking I don't no how I make it through the day most of the time. I feel so bad that I dont get to spend my whole day with her like I used to. I feel like I'm neglecting her. Cause I get off work and I let her sleep and I make dinner. Then feed her then I eat then clean up then shower then next thing I no its time to go to bed. My days aren't long enough. Everyone says this time is gonna go fast and it is already. I need it to slow down.lol
I love being a mommy now!!!! My daughter will b 11 weeks tuesday and breast feeds like there's no tomorrow. I don't know where I'd be without the help and support of my mom since my daughter has been born.
Ktowne-I can only imagine! I definitely want another but it will be quite a while from now for sure...haha. But I'm so glad you are doing well and it's getting easier for you! :)
Libbyz- yeah i know what you mean, my fiancé only took off a week with us and when he went back to work i was incredibly sad and feeling so overwhelmed. But thank goodness it got better...and im currently looking for a job right now :( as much as i don't wanna, I'm going to miss all this time with john...
Peaches- omg my mother has been such a huge help during all of it!! And she soils my son rotten already!! Haha
My little one is going to be 15 weeks tomorrow and I have a 3 year old so I know how ktowne feels I am not breast feeding and she is doing great she is probably around 14 lbs and she lifts her head good and I just started trying her on cereal due to her spitting up constantly and staying constipated I have had to give her juice some. Good luck to all of u
It's a lot of work! Was this your 2nd? Did you think it was a big transition for you? It definitely was for me, but I'm SUCH a clean freak and I find it hard to get things done with 2 kids, especially as much as I like getting done, haha. Looking forward to her first words, crawling, walking, rolling, and especially trying juice and baby food, can't wait for all of her milestones!! :)
Ohh yeah!! And he's been acting up and crying more lately, we're trying to work with him about how much attention Chloe needs, and I try to spend one on one time with him but since Chloe's still breastfed it's very demanding. It makes me feel terrible :(
