You could balance that out.
One monkey out, one monkey in.
Oh i intend to...
You'll need to point that in the other direction.
Nice sense of timing.
Wishing much joy to you.
Congrats! My "baby" turns 22 in 12 days.
Congrats! And Wolfram is the most bad ass middle name ever.
Congrats! Awesome name.
h8r, congrats to yr wife and yrself. awesome name, glad to see a healthy baby is the outcome.
Too cool that must have made everything extra special. I am sure she is happy to have a little brother despite the age difference.
Congratulation to all of your.
His nickname should still be Garbor.
congrats!!! enjoy every minute !
I predicted the name the H8r baby thread, but not the name, interesting choice.
BTW: Pic 2 looks like you.
Tell Mrs H8r, good job.
Huge Congratulations H8R & co.
Awesome! Have fun!
Congrats, H8R!! Good looking boy you've got there! I assume that's from his mother's side of the family?
Congrats to the H8rs...well done!
I simply hadn't looked in here.
Way to go, Jason. Not that you really did anything but nonetheless way to go. He looks strong so should probably be able to hold his own against your sport babies.
So Willow saw the pictures of the baby and said
"They shouldn't feed popsicles to babies."
"The baby has obviously been eating a cherry popsicle."
and she just wanders off leaving me stunned as usual.
Kids just say the Dardn'ist things.
Clever kid though.
i know it's a couple of days over due , but congrats !
Last couple days have been rough. He's not been eating enough or getting the hang of it. He lost alot of weight, too much in fact.
I kinda lost it today - the weight thing has me really worried and he's been crying so much he's hoarse. I was thinking we should jump on formula and get the weight back and so he could get some real rest. I was getting upset that my wife was holding out for breast milk only and not trying to get some second opinions. I blew up at my wife in what is the worst moment, when she is trying to deal with it all.
Saw the doc today after a consult with a separate lactation consultant. The consensus? I need to support her and keep my mouth shut and make sure they get what they need.
Sigh. Now I feel like a jerk.
Damn he's fvcking cute though. It's killing me.
Wish I could help, but I can't.
At least I now know there are lactation consultants out there.
How much weight has he lost? Starting weight and current?
Did the consultant or doctor weigh him before -and- after a feeding session to see how much he "transferred" from breast to tummy?
Did anyone mention "ferenelum"?
Blowing up was/is a bad thing. Though don't beat yourself up about it too much. Stressful times lead to it. Having done it once you'll see it coming next time and stop it. What was/is not bad is you having an opinion about what is going on. Do not let the guilt of whatever suppress that. She's a hormone factory right now with the addition of undergoing a physically and mentally taxing procedure and you have not.
Feeding your son formula is not tantamount to feeding him battery acid and as such will not doom him (your being is father will do that).
These things work out. He's an American he is destined to be fat.
Ahhhhhhahahhahahaha! The black $hit, eh? Good stuff, that.
Congrats to you and the missus!
Ummm... how long have you been married again?
Hang in there, man. ++vibes out to you, the missus, and the liddle guy.
Hey H8R - have you asked the doc about maybe feeding him bacon?
Don't beat yourself up too much, between the exhaustion, the frustration and the worry, it'a a lot to process. Like DRB said, you'll know what to watch for it the future and head it off at the pass.
As to the weight issue hang in there. Baby Becca lost slightly more than the allowable anount in the hospital, but we still tried the breast milk route. At her first month appointment she had lost more weight (she was down to 6 lbs plus change) so we were told to supplement with formula. Now she's on formula full time ( my lady dried up) and came in at a cool 14 lbs at her 4 month appt. a few days ago. Formula may not be as good as breast milk, but it is not poisen either. Sometimes things don't go accrding to plan and you have to do whatevers needed.
Did anyone talk to you two about "tongue tied"?
Did you know that a woman who's never been pregnant can make breastmilk?
She needs to pump for 3-4 weeks regularly before the supply becomes substantial enough, but in the mean time, you can give your kid the little amount of breastmilk for the antibodies that mom produces.
It frustrates me that I continue to hear moms/parents weren't given enough info.
Have you ever considered becoming a lactation consultant?
I seriously love boobies.
Might I add that the first few days/weeks the mother will produce a super heavy milk (product?) saturated in fat etc. that is really really good for the baby. Then it will turn the what we see as normal breast milk.
Anyway, we had a small baby (she turned a year last month and only weighs 15 lbs still and we had trouble getting her to eat much. Just hang in there.
I, like you H8r, wanted to switch to formula but my wife was against it and things worked out fine. Just pay attention to your baby and don't be shy to call/bring him to the doctor.
Don't worry about flipping out. The stress and lack of sleep will lead to that. Your wife will understand when her emotions/hormones level out. My wife laughs at me now about how crazy I was when we had our daughter. I would wake up every five minutes at night to check on her. That first month was hell!!
And oh yeah: My baby would cry and cry and cry and cry and cry. Holy crap was that rough. Just hang in there.
