thanks so much for your help and advice. it has really helped me through this first week...now any suggestions about what to do with a needy 1 1/2 year old while nursing


mine are 15 months apart - something in a glass or sippy for my oldest and a pile of books and all of us on the couch - that way both babies were drinking something and both were cuddled up - thanks to God that your second doesnt need to spend a lot of time eating and that she is gaining well
