Although, Paisli May turned three months on the 25th of April, I was a little busy.
I did however, take her picture that day, I'm just a little slow on posting!
Paisli at 3months is as darling as ever. She is quite a little naughty, she is on what I call on the
"The Princess Program" (Book on that coming soon).
Paisli is so much fun! She loves to laugh and smile when she feels good!
She loves to lay on the floor as long as you are right there for her to smile at!
I weighed her on the 19th of April and she weighed 11lbs with a sopping wet diaper.
I was advised to supplement. That my friends was easier said than done.
Paisli has a fear of the bottle, I am guessing. It took almost two weeks to get her to take a bottle with ease.
She is looking a little chubbier now! I am getting a little more rest,
up until that day she cried almost all dayand night!
Huh? Ya think she was hungry on top of all those tummy aches?
I'm gonna take a stab at it and say yes, yes she was!
So for those that think Breast is Best, I'd like to say that Breast is Best for some people!
But as for my sister's and I, it is not. And don't try and tell me that every woman can Breast Feed!
It is not so, just like, not every woman can get pregnant! And not every woman has a period. It just isn't so! I do produce milk, it is just skim milk, and therefore Breast is NOT Best in my case!
My sister's first baby slept almost all day when she breast fed. He was so lethargic, he wasn't gaining weight, but she was Breast Feeding, she just produced skim milk like me.
I feel that 3months was okay, maybe 2months would have been better this time around!
I used to work on the Post Partum Unit at McKay Dee Hospital and the lactation consultants tried to say all these things. "Everyone can nurse!" "Everyone can, you just have to drink enough, eat the right things, latch your baby on the correct way, pump, supplement, don't use a binky, etc..." I have heard it all!
I remember people saying rude things out right to my sisters and I am NOT okay with that!
It is something that hurts us! We have tried that is all that counts!
One lady told my sister that she seemed like a mom that would nurse, like a bad mom gives a bottle?
Someone else said, "How are we gonna get those Speechly girls to nurse?" For real?
Like we are killing our children by bottle feeding?
I'd like to say that both of my sisters are some of the BEST moms out there! Don't even get me started!
Well, I may have started hahaha! Sorry about the Rant! But I feel VERY STRONGLY about this,
and want to help educate some people out there!
