I believe we are destined to have high maintenance children....Jack was such a handful at this age and it looks like history is repeating itself! BUT Jack has turned out to be an incredible toddler...so I think the rough first few months were worth it. If these boys turn out like Jack...ok, I can hang in!
I tried the pump/bottle feeding thing. First of all I hate pumping, second of all Christian hates the bottle and third of all Camden puked twice as much after a bottle feed. SO...not a gonna happen :)
We've continued to tandem feed, mostly because they keep waking up at the same time to eat! Maybe once a day they are waking at different times and then I solo feed. They were going every 3 hours and now it's 2 1/2-3...even at night, but it usually is one late night feed and one early feed.
I'm trying to do the whole keep them awake during a feed, and after and then having sleep time after wake time, but since they were early they are a little more sleepy during feeds. We'll see how this goes...hoping to make night time much better for us :)
I have another appointment with the lactation consultant on Wednesday, so I'll be able to chat with her more on what's been going on.
They are so darn cute I can't stand it! I want to nibble at them all day long :)
Here are a few pictures...I'm trying to do better at snapping away!
Thank you for all your comments and emails, it helps to know I'm not alone!
Have I mentioned how thankful I am to have my sweet husband at home helping me?! :) He walked in the door earlier with a beautiful boquet of roses...ahh I love him more and more every day. Even with all this stress and craziness I feel closer to him than ever before!
