Random Notes

August 6, 2010

1. 1 month with the baby…I think we are still getting used to each other. Some days he tries my nerves and other days he rocks, so I guess he’s alot like me. HA!

2. I googled “how to minimize stretch marks” (yes I got a few) and the 1st two sites that came up suggested the best way to get rid of them was not to get them at all. Oh really asshole? These sites were obviously written by men who never gave birth.

3. I’ve begun to question my up bringing even more as I see the way my parents try to “help” and offer advice. My dad for example was afraid to hold the baby and seemed like he didn’t know what he was doing. Obviously he was a big help to my mom. My mom said she took pills to stop her breast milk (which is why my immune system probably blows) and said that she began giving us rice cereal at 1 month (which probably means 2 weeks) so that we would sleep through the night and suggested I do the same. All of the studies I’ve read say this is a big “no-no” and really does not help your child sleep any more than just breast milk or formula. In fact, Santi’s mom has given me more advice and support and she had no mom to help her through her three births. Thanks mom.

4. I got mastitis. It’s a breast infection. It makes your boobs feel like they are on fire and get a hard lump in them. You get a fever and chills and feel really tired. I just thought it was funny that mastitis has the word “tit” in it. Good stuff. See, that’s me keeping a good attitude about a not so awesome situation.

5. I’ll be on my own next week….I’ll let you know how that works out….hehehehe
