Teething

So now everyone is mentioning my son is teething.  I, however, have been saying this for the past few weeks.  It started with the excessive drooling, the bearing down on mommy (yep, my nipples knew first), wanting to have everything in his mouth.  You know, the typical signs.  No one, not even the hubs believed me.  Yesterday the daycare mentioned it and NOW it makes sense. Um hello?!?!? I’m his mother! I know when my son is teething.  The poor boy sucked a red mark on his arm just to ease his gums.  I’m tempted to run out and get some Orajel for his poor gums or should I do like our mothers did and put a lil liquor on it?  Please know that I’m kidding (no alcohol for the little guy yet).  Anyone got some home remedies for me?

Drunk (milk drunk that is LOL)

P.S. The daycare also told me that he spit out the formula cause it was so nasty to him. Yay for breastmilk!

I’ve Been Slacking

Yes, yes I know.  I’ve disappeared these past few days on this blog.  Well first I had a supply issue that I was trying to conquer (thanks Aunt Flo).  I freaked (literally broke down crying) because I had to supplement with formula one day but it really caught me back up.  Thank goodness my baby prefers breastmilk! So does the hubby, he goes “yea, that formula tastes NOTHING like breastmilk….eww!” LOL.  I’ve also had a mini freakout because this is the week I put my two weeks in.  I’m not ready to leave the benefits or the people here, but I’m so ready for my clinical rotations.  Thank goodness for stipend money!

This weekend, I got to see 3 of my preggo ladies and talk to my online preggo on the phone (I’ve never heard her voice before! LOL)  They are all great, minus the hormonal rollercoaster but do you know how hard it is to make a baby…FROM SCRATCH?!?!?  We talked about men (and boys), taking care of ourself for the little ones, sex, and of course breastfeeding (gimme a break, I just figured out I’m a lactivist).  The 3rd (my lil man) enjoyed being around the ladies and posted up with his little cute self (he gets it from daddy).  I would’ve NIP but I was in the center of the restaurant with 3 preggo ladies.  Plus, hubby isn’t too fond of it.  In my mind, nursing is very intimate between my child and I.  If I was in a booth and wasn’t having loud convo and didn’t have a bag of “mommy’s milk” handy, I probably would have.  Anyhow, I found out one of my preggos is having a boy.  I’m so excited for her!  Since all 3 are due in January, I’m thinking a joint baby shower.  However, I don’t want one to be jipped over the others.  Ahh decisions, decisions! What do you think?
