holy cow! i apologize for not swinging by in awhile. so, we both have lazy eaters, eh? everyone told me that cate would eventually bfeed in about 10 mins at 3 months. yeah, not so much. maybe 30? and she will be very hungry and then stop nuring to talk to me! what baby does that? i get the feeling that this will be a baby long struggle, it sounds like you do too-i hope we are both wrong.
YOU QUIT YOUR JOB!!! that must be such a weird feeling! it does seem like it hasn't sunk in yet. wow. a whole new life! i look forward to hearing about it.

I am sorry to just be posting, but congrats on making a decision that feels right for your family.

Feb. 20 will be my big day of reckoning. . .

Thanks for sharing - that gave me goosebumps! (or goose pimples as my husband's side of the family calls them :-) Thanks for the help on the BF and formula issue :-)

I was away and am just catching up on all the drama.

Seriously, I can't believe how advanced MT is! the teeth! The standing! What a guy!!! Yay MT.

I'm sorry to hear about all the feeding issues. I have no advice as I have been unable to get Sacha to transition to a sippy cup (he's 10 mos and I've been trying since 6, and he won't take a bottle). I do use the Nuby, it seems to work best. (And by best I mean 1oz at a time.) I DO just let him play with it. I think that the babies will only get a hang of something by practice (think about the standing, crawling, etc... why would he NOT need practice to learn to use a cup?)

As for your job... I think you made a good move for you and your family. MT obviously needs you right now. And you want to be there for him. Screw what "society" thinks!!

You are very right--it is about quality of life. I wish people would quit with the guilt and the high mindedness. In the end, everyone has to choose what works to make the family a FAMILY. And for you, this will work. And the cool thing--you can always change things if quality of life becomes an issue later.

It sounds like you made a good choice.
