Re: Roll call & GTKY

  • @mrsrep123 how do you like that formula? I bought a small can to have in case we need it. Its weird they label it as toddler formula. I get why, but it makes you second guess giving it to a baby.

    @lrwardrop we love it. No issues at all. When I was done pumping with DS1 we did TONS of research on formula and this was the clear front runner for us. I was thrown off by the "toddler formula" written on the can, but our pediatrician said to compare nutritional labels to infant formulas and they're the same in terms of calories per 1oz. How did you come across it?

    -baby is 5 weeks old

    2. Did you have a boy, girl, or both?
    -boy

    3. What and how are you feeding your baby?
    -Breastfeeding, pumping,and supplementing with formula. I'm only getting 2-4 ounces of breast milk when pumping together. Sometimes he's still hungry after eating on both sides, so we have to supplement. I'm cool with it now.

    - out the house

    5. If you work out of the house, what do you do? When do you return to work? What we your childcare plans?
    -I work as a PCT at a local hospital. I go back July 18. I work only 3 days a week, but I don't want to leave my baby to go back

  • . How old is your baby and/or how many weeks postpartum are you? 6 weeks! (It's going so fast!)

    2. Did you have a boy, girl, or both? Boy

    3. What and how are you feeding your baby? About half pumped milk and half formula. Some days it's more 2/3 BM and 1/3 formula. We attempt breastfeeding before feeds and on demand with very mixed results, but even when he nurses well he doesn't seem to get a ton out.

    4. We are all working moms, but do you work "out of the house" or "at home"? I am a nurse and will be going back part time, working every other weekend while DH watches the baby. 

    5. If you work out of the house, what do you do? When do you return to work? What we your childcare plans? See above. Not looking forward to the return. I'm nervous about being able to pump every 3 hours.

    6. Do you have other children? Ages? Fur babies? Type and Ages? We have two dogs (rott/hound and German Shepherd), two cats, and a fish.

    7. What is/are your favorite thing/things (so far) about being a new mom or mom of multiples? So many things! Cuddles, smiles, all the sounds he makes, his smells (even the bad ones!), his facial expressions, nursing...

    8. Add anything else... I feel like a different person some days and in some ways. I wasn't prepared for that.

    1. How old is your baby and/or how many weeks postpartum are you? 7 weeks today

    2. Did you have a boy, girl, or both? Boy

    3. What and how are you feeding your baby? EBF with 1 pumped bottle a day. I'm thinking about switching to EP, but I'm feeling guilt and logistical issues/questions about that

    4. We are all working moms, but do you work "out of the house" or "at home"? Out

    5. If you work out of the house, what do you do? When do you return to work? What we your childcare plans? Lawyer returning to work September 18 in 10 weeks. We are hiring a nanny, first interview is in 2 weeks! 

    6. Do you have other children? Ages? Fur babies? Type and Ages? 2 cats, they are great big brothers

    7. What is/are your favorite thing/things (so far) about being a new mom or mom of multiples? I love looking at this perfect baby and knowing he's healthy and feeling so lucky to have him. 

    8. Add anything else...
    i had no idea how much I would dislike the newborn phase, this is not for me and we are pretty sure we are 1 and done. I'm also feeling very guilty over hating BF'ing. It's awful, he won't/can't latch and we are at the mercy of nipple shields. I want to switch to EP'ing but that has its own logistics problems.
