So what kind did you have?
I had the Fisher Price My Little Lamb swing. It was a total lifesaver with Brynn. There were times that she got overstimulated and this swing going fast with the whitenoise on, and swaddled was the only thing that calmed her down.

Glad she is feeling better Britt! I kinda envy you on the late night feedings. It was my favorite time with Brynn...only time it was quiet in the house.

Generally I don't mind night nursing- when its routine- but out of routine it's hard to get up. That 1:30 dragged on all the way to 5. I finally got back to bed only to remember I hadn't made breakfast (we do breads and muffins for ease) and I have my well woman exam this morning and needed a shower before the boys were up. That night sure disappeared fast. Hello Monday!

Oh britt that's tough.

I feel like a bad mommy bc I am dreading nursing again. I know I will love it after it begins but I seem to always get like this. And I know once it is all over I will truly miss those moments. It is just right now thinking about it that makes me dread it. I wouldn't choose anything else though.

You are NOT a bad mom! Nursing is a lot of work. I did not nurse my ds2 more than 5 weeks and I will be honest with you, there was a lot of freedom in that. Dh and I went on frequent dates and I ran errands alone. Those are things I can't do right now.

Re: August '11 - January Chatter!

I actually had to pump on Sun morning after the girls being gone since Sat. It felt weird to pump just to dump it out but I knew I wouldn't use it for anything.

6 day workweek this week...ugh. I know I'll really be missing my day off when Thurs comes and I have to work. I also have to start looking for another babysitter because mine is going to try to move in a month or two.
