Upon finding out we're expecting #2, the hubs replied with "yay! This time we pack formula and a pacifier for the hospital!"
See, with the 1st I insisted on trying to BF. I did everything I could & 3 months in, our little guy was diagnosed with reflux & food allergies so bad we ended up on prescription formula. To make matters worse, the poor little guy was so turned off from eating, by 5 months, the specialist contemplated a Gtube. At 9 months, solids were a miserable experience for everyone. Early intervention services began at 6 months & it made things almost bearable. Between the lack of sleep, round the clock feedings until he was 18 months old, & the nonstop "wait, you still allergic to this?" threw me into such PPD that I'm desperate not to repeat. Our son will be 2.5 yo in June & while we've learned to just "roll with it" ...it isn't easy.
If all goes well, #2 arrives in Nov 2015. Yes, it is WAY too early for me to be thinking of feeding... But I can't have a repeat of the 1st kid's year for #2. I have had numerous dreams where I'm nursing the new baby (& our 2 year old!) since find out out we're expecting. Part of me wants to try again... But the rational part of me knows FF is what is best for everyone in our family.
But.... How do you pick one? I think I have trust issues with feeding a baby.... LOL
Doing my best to make a happy home for my two favorite guys & eagerly awaiting the arrival our #2 in Nov '15.
