My DH asked the doctor if i was spoiling him by holding him so much and not letting him cry but, he said that i was not (yeah me lol) he said that he was too young but, if i still was when he got older then i might spoil him... he was in the NICU for 6 1/2 weeks and it was 2 weeks before i got to hold him for the first time (besides 2 seconds when he was born) and then i could only hold him for 30 min. at a time once a day for kangarooing, it was so hard especially since they were very crowed and he was doing well with breathing he went to step down quickly and in there a lot of the parents get to hold the babies but, i couldn't so now i always say im making up for time with him, i just dont know how long that excuse will work.
Yeah my daughter loves to be held as well. some days thats the only way she will be quiet. I am getting the hang of her though. She was born a little early but no nicu or any thing like that but I think that may be why she's so "needy". She loves to be swaddled still as well. My son was just so easy going. Hopefully sleep os right around the corner i have been like a zombie lately. She's awake again better go haha
still have no pic but still working on it lol... im sure you may feel 20 years older but im sure you dont look that way ha ha... im sure also that sleep is right around the corner for you (hopefully) my son will be 4 months on the 5th of Feb. but he was a preemie so his gestational age is 7 weeks, but i am lucky he is like his mom and likes his sleep at night he is now up to around 7 hours a night.. the only problem im having is he is not very good at self entertaining during the day, he likes to be held (not a problem since it was so long before i could hold him in the NICU) and loves to be talked to.(another mom trait)
Thanks. I feel like I look 20 years older. My son slept a lot; my family says I finally have a real baby and I am exhausted. Hopefully soon things will get better haha I am so excited to have one of each though I am done after this. I feel fulfilled :)
I downloaded some pictures to photobucket.com and copied the code to the avatar thingy haha. that picture was taken right before I got pregnant with cayleigh hopefully I can lose the double chin and baby weight and look like that again haha. I am still about 30 pounds away boo!
