Finding the time

I am posting directly into blogger. Usually I write elsewhere then cut and paste - but time is short, so you'll just have to read this typos and all.

Baby D. has been sick. I somehow thought that newborns got a free pass on sicknesses. Nope. They catch colds just like you and me. So at the ripe age of six weeks my poor little guy is all full of boogies. He seems to have had 2 peeks already. Once with a sight fever that sent us to the doctors. But really, all we can do is saline in the nose and use the boogie sucker. Works good enough. Except those panic moments in the middle of the night when I wake up to the sound of him choking on his own snot. It sucks.

Despite the illness, the boy is good. He is a pretty easy baby and a pretty good sleeper. He is starting to give us the hint of a smile here and there, which is awesome. Usually it is when he is on the change table:)

We started in with cloth diapers this week. Not full time, but as much as we can manage... Trying to save some money.

Ok... So, the boy is crying, and this post is boring. More later about the biggest soupiest asspolsion I have ever witnessed!

aww- sorry he's sick already! Those boogie suckers sure are weird- but the best! Imagine having to use it on a sick dog... now- that's interesting!

Hope he's back to 100% soon. Yikes on your upcoming topic! ;o)

Awwww...poor little D! Sending lots of get-well vibes your way.

Best of luck with the big diaper change! You are far braver than I could ever be...let us know how it goes. :)

Breastmilk up the nose is fantastic (& free!). He just might get his face covered while you perfect your aim.

I'm sorry he's sick, C has had a few colds as well. Something else you can try is to twist a tissue (kleenex to you?) and poke it in his nose to try to get him to sneeze out the babysnots.

Hope cloth works well for you.

thank you for the explanation of the firstborn survey. i had c-sections with both of my children and it pisses me off that some people consider me, well, not as valid. I labored unmedicated for 32 hours to get stuck at 9cm with my firstborn. Im glad I didnt push my 9 lber out! Its all natural to me to get that baby out anyway possible for the sake of his and the mother's health!

Its shit like that and the public breastfeeding debate that piss me off. Cause Im not gonna sit in on a toilet with the person in the next stall taking a shit to feed my baby. Ridiculous.
