Exactly!! Embarrassed to post this, but DH rarely held our first! I was a nervous Nellie and was terrified to leave him without his boobie. LOL. We left him one time with my MIL so we could go to a hockey game. We just got settled into our seats and MIL calls to come pick him up. Lol. Poor thing was just crying hysterically and MIL ended up with hives! I think she probably never wanted to watch him again. But he's 6 now and she watched him today ;-)

Thankfully DH has been on vacay this week and I feel as though I can actually breathe. I'm
Pretty much type-A, too. And I have let things go this week. I do wish I could trust someone to watch all three of my kiddies. That's my problem. Trust. Our parents are older and really don't want to watch kids. Hubby and I have the youngest grand kids on both sides, so I think they're just tired. I do, however, long for an afternoon of just shopping!! Alone :-). But for now, I take alone time an hour or so at a time. Lol.

So how often are the babes nursing in a day? It seems like my girl only wants it for comfort or to fall asleep. I've even tried to supplement with formula because I'm worried she's not getting enough? She refuses the formula.

I feel kind of guilty about saying this, but I think it's time for my girl to move into her crib :-(. I just cannot sleep anymore. Add in the other two kids and my hubby in the bed = :-p. I'm so not ready to hear the crying and I don't want to let her CIO. I tried that with my son and ugh!! I was in tears in a heaping pile outside of his door. My older daughter always slept in her bed...until the last year. Now she sneaks into my bed at some point during the night. I think she's part ninja. Lol

And, Julia, the food/sleep ideas were so helpful. Thank you!
