FIRST TIME MOMMY THOUGHTS FROM MY SISTER
Here's my sister at her wedding on the Gondollas in Cali. Isn't she gorgeous. You can see Ava in one of the pics, too. It was just a beautiful day. You can see little Jacob in the belly. :)
Well my sister told me tonight about how it's going to be with the new baby Jacob, who's about ready to arrive.
She told me:
1. Her baby will not have a Binky.
2. Her baby will not touch a bottle AT ALL until he is 4 weeks.
3. There will be no breast pumping for the first 4 weeks.
4. Her "Lactation Consultant" has given her all the info she needs.
However she told me she's not that much of a hippy because she's not using cloth diapers. Well, thank God for that!!!!!
I Love You my baby Mellie. I hope this works for you. LOL...but baby...sometimes things just aren't that easy. I guess I get a little upset, because we are led to believe that breastfeeeding is sooooo easy. I don't know one person who's had it be a breeze. God Bless You...if any of you reading this had a "natural experience." It's just not that easy for so many women. I pumped..pumped...cried...cracked..hurt..and did it. I'm sure she'll be fine. I know you will hunny! It's just ok if you have to give up on one of your rules. LOL. :)
So, Melanie if it doesn't go totally as planned...I'm here for you sweetie. Those binkies are life savers hunny! I'll make sure I get you a nice stash for that night when Jacob is needing a little soothing. Ooooooh just remember you were a thumb sucker...so there's always that! :)
I love you!
