Cora was like that too. It does get better! Took her forever to self soothe. She was a cat napper too and then as she got older she took longer naps. From 1-2 she took 3 hour naps! Hang in there mommy!

Lizzie hasn't been jealous of Luke, but I can tell she is craving attention. She came over when I was holding him and dropped her head down and it hit him in the forehead. I yelled at her to be careful and Luke started screaming. Of course she was hysterical. Yeah it hurt her chin a little, but she was more upset that I yelled and that she hurt him. Poor girl was bawling her eyes out and saying "I was just trying to hug you." I felt terrible.

Plus it seems like I spend all my time nursing, pumping, or changing diapers and I don't have a lot of time with her. I need to schedule a girls day for us and let DH handle the baby with my pumped stash.

How do you all divide your attention when the baby requires most of it???

It's hard Kari! If Violet is asleep or happy under her mat I try to do things with Cora. Cora will want to sit on my lap while I'm feeding Violet and I sometimes let her. She's acting out more and is more emotional now. She doesn't ever get mad at Violet, but she sure does miss getting all the attention and whatever she wants.

Cuz - Once she can get on her stomach herself, she can sleep on her stomach. She's strong enough to roll on her own and may even be more comfortable and sleep better now that she can position herself. That was true for us, and Eli started stomach sleeping at about the same age as Claudia is now.

Chelsea, Lizzie always ask to sit with me when I'm nursing him or pumping and she can't and I feel bad bc that's what I am doing the majority of the day. It really is so much easier to give BM in a bottle.... It's so much faster and less painful. He just nursed for 45 min... And when thy rat every hour or so it's just easier I give a bottle that takes 10 min.... Especially when you have a toddler to tend to as well. And two dogs. And are living with the in-laws.... I'm trying to stick with nursing though.

For me, I was overwhelmed with pumping and feeding with a bottle. To keep up my supply I had to pump every two hours and then also feed her. Made it hard for me to keep up with Cora. That's why I stopped. It was too much and I wasn't producing enough to feed her more than one-two bottles a day. If you do pump, just make sure you do it often enough or your supply will tank. That happened to me

Initially, Zoey would take awhile to nurse. But once she got going and got the hang of it, those nursing sessions really decreased. And they dropped down to about 5 minutes for the whole nursing session around 6 or so months. It takes me a good 20-30 minutes to pump a bottle. Nursing is the way to go for us. LOL

5 minutes would be great!!! I think he's just so sleepy and not as alert as they are when they are older.... he takes 30-45 min because I keep having to arouse him.

EJ-thanks for the answer. Ive made shure that there is nothing in the crib and am trying no blankets. It just makes me petrified to have her sleep on her stomach.

Ok, another question... how long should I be bfing for? I want to do it as long as possible, but am curious as to how long I "should".
