It took me 2 hours to put the kid down for a nap:
1st attempt: he had to pee 2nd attempt: epic poop —break for Skype call with grandma and grandpa. Banshee-like screaming ensues— 3rd attempt: spit up everywhere 4th attempt: boob-induced sleep. SUCCESS!
The Breastfed Baby: The Skinny on Infant Growth... →
I am SO glad I read this. The pediatrician told Dudeguy she was concerned that the kid’s growth was slowing although he’s in the 50th percentile. He seems big enough to me. Humph…callin’ my baby small. Pssssssssssssssh thebreastfedbaby: I have known for awhile that the infant growth charts used by pediatricians were “based on formula-fed babies” (I was told by my...
I had the kid at work with me for an hour...
Productivity was down 85%

So, the kid has been giving dudeguy hell this week - rejecting bottles, screaming, not eating, not napping. Dudeguy thought it was because HK, in all of his hardline preferences at 5 months old, no longer liked breast milk and only wanted banana puree…which we ran out of. After fully freaking out and sending me IM’s demanding that I go to Target for more banana puree, it turns out...
so the kid can now undo velcro...
I’ve had to send my favorite covers (Grovia, FTW!) in to be converted to snap closures because HK has 1) discovered his junk and 2) likes to gain access to his junk. I can’t tell you how disconcerting it is to watch my infant scratch his balls. Honey, if you’re reading this as an adult, I’m sorry for putting that out there. You were a hot mess at 4 months old. Be glad...
Breastfeeding is hard. If you don’t hit hurdles in the beginning, pray to...
Apparently, the kid likes Big Sean…
