This may just be frustration due to my husband's insane work schedule and the fact that I feel completely smothered and bored out of my mind with a toddler and an infant and no money and nowhere to go to escape the monotony, but...
I am crazy bored. I am tired of trying to figure out what the heck my baby wants. Do you want to sleep? Do you want to nurse? Do you want a bottle? Do you need to poop?
The feeding part makes me especially crazy. It's rarely clear what she wants. She'll nurse a little, wait, and then usually have a bottle about half an hour later. Sometimes 2 ounces, sometimes 1 ounce. Sometimes, I'll make the bottle, but she won't take it until she's nursed again, briefly, I guess to re-whet her appetite?
Yesterday, she wanted very little to do with the bottle, at least for the most part. She took a really long nap, which was great because it meant I got a nap, and then, I even got to shower and put away some laundry. She'd only had 2 ounces all morning, and slept from 11 to 2. But then she woke up with a dry diaper. I know she wants to nurse, and I just can't make enough for her to be satisfied and hydrated. But it's frustrating as hell trying to get her to take the supplements, sometimes.
