Ok even if he only keeps it in his mouth for about 5 minutes at the most this binky has been the only thing that has kept me from completely having a melt down for the past two days. I won't say that it has kept me from tears, but I haven't FREAKED OUT just yet. So the nursing drama continues....yesterday was by far the worst. I nursed Tayden every hour and a half (sometimes every hour) and still didn't seem to be able to console him. I ended up a few times having to give him a few ounces in a bottle after I had nursed him because he was still so hungry. I would try and give him some baby food, but the first bite I would put in his mouth he would just bawl cause it's like he has to be a little content and not still starving to eat baby food...which he wasn't. Today was a little bit better but I definitely feel like I have a brand new infant all over again. I never know when he is going to be hungry again....always sooner than I think he should be....I don't know if he fussing cause he is tired or for some other reason....and leaving the house seems like a very risky and impossible task to complete. My new philosophy has become, "when in doubt, wip it out." Yes....sad but very true. BUT I do it all for the sake of my little one so he can have the benefits of nursing. I hope you appreciate this Tayden!!
