LOL - Cute :-D He's getting big!
Huge. He grows every day. It's incredible. I hope that he slows down because neither me nor his dad are terribly big people.
LOL - He will. Wait until he gets mobile... BF babies esp will actually drop weight around that time. (word of warning, unless you have a wonderful pedi who's actually studied the subject at length they may flip out on you... ours is pretty good about BF stuff and still did)
during labor one of the nurses said that our pedi was her pedi lol. so if she doesn't know that they loose a little weight by now her head has been in the sand
oh i meant when the nurse was a child
LOL Yeah understood... I was shocked at ours' reaction honestly. I shouldn't have been because I'm in a BF group online and a lot of mom's on there have had the same prob with theirs... but I was still shocked. We had to bring her in for a weight check after that. Was on pins and needles hoping she'd gain something so they wouldn't complain.
Yikes!! Fortunately, I'm part of a breast feeding support group in person. We meet weekly and it's headed by lactation consultant. There's a wide variety of moms with different age children although all of them are infants. I haven't seen toddlers but maybe it's because they feel that they don't need support by that point. Anyways...point is when we meet we are also asked to weigh the baby. So if there's a drop in weight the lactation consultant might ask questions about feeding and then if needs to will recommend calling the pedi.I feel blessed to have a lot of resources in my area and as well as moms like you online. Otherwise I'd feel a little overwhelmed. It's good to know we're not alone. And I like the fact that you forewarn me. It makes me a little more prepared.Thanks!!!
:-) No prob. That's great you have an in person support group. That would be wonderful. I have no idea if they exist here, and if they didn't I'm sure I wouldn't be able to go because of the one vehicle and time restraint situations. I got lucky last time... a cousin who was very experienced and finding the group online. Plus being determined (lol stubborn fits too). But yeah, some kind of support is very important. Although honestly I think the toddler age is just as important too because at that point you're dealing w/ peoples neg reactions alot too :-(
We're lucky. My husband's car hasn't died yet. Although when it does, we've discussed me transporting him to work. We'll have to see. I'm thinking that I'll buy him a bus ticket. I'm mean. LOL
I love to read your thoughts. Thanks for sharing!
