“We’re gonna fix this problem”

That’s my promise to Smoochie.  You see, our feeding issues continue to unfold. He’s gaining weight due to formula supplementation. Last week to yesterday, he went from 8.10 to 9.6! Our Dr. even joked, ‘what are you feeding this kid?’ And I’m not gonna lie I was so thrilled, I was giddy with triumph.  As … Continue reading

We’re doing ok!

Promise you won’t tell the universe I said things are good, okay? Cuz you know, Murphy’s law and stuff…. But it’s true.  We’re settling in and we’re happy.

When I was pregnant I thought this was solid gold advice.  I truly did not understand why new moms looked unhinged when someone suggested it to them.  When the old adage came up, I’d think to myself: Best … Continue reading

Breastfeeding/pumping question

I could/should start googling this query, but I have about 2 hours sleep and I’d also appreciate community wisdom cuz I’m fascinated by how others breast feed, especially when I have the benefit of knowing/understanding them. Question: I have a medala freestyle pump. I’ve tried using it twice, three days apart. Once while I was … Continue reading

Pause pleaseย 

Tomorrow Smoochie is 7 days old. One week. One whole week.  I wish I could hit pause โ˜บ๏ธ.  He’s growing and changing and evolving so fast. Every day brings a little more clarity to the question: ummm, how do I eat, sleep, use the bathroom and take care of this little person at the same … Continue reading
