Nursing

I have never been able to nurse our kids for any kind of extended time. I now believe that this happened because I always wanted to have my freedom and so I would try and pump instead of just nurse. I don’t think my body takes well to interventions..ie pitocin to get labor started, c-sections, etc.
First, I have to say I could never nurse Silas like I do if it wasn’t for the absolute love and understanding of my wonderful husband, Micah. Things just don’t get done (as quickly or at all). Nursing is the #1 priority. I was talking to Micah last night and I said it was kind of scary to think about that I am what is keeping lil Silas alive. I am his only food source. No only that, but the food source I can’t even see so I never really can tell how much he has eaten. For a person who likes to be in control, this is difficult. It id difficult to not get all the things done that I want to get done during the day. Sometimes it makes me downright crazy. But, I wouldn’t change it for anything. They are only young once. I know all too well how fast they grow ( I can’t believe I have an almost 16 yr old). This is the season I am in. It will pass and I will probably wish I was still in it.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1

  1. Do you have a scale that weighs ounces? You can weigh Silas on that before & after eating to know how much he had. That’s why we all had baby scales back in the day. Now there sre many adult scales that go to the ounce. He seems to be growing good though.
