Well, we are finally seeming to break out of the house around here. Jonathan, Nora, Liam and I headed to the mall for a (brief) outing today! We let Nora walk around and had our family favorite...Chick-fil-a! Nora even learned that the Chick-fil-a experience gets better than just chicken and fries. Cookies and cream milkshakes are delicious! Poor Liam stayed in his carseat the whole time, sound asleep.
Tonight, Jonathan's parents are graciously keeping BOTH kids for us so that we can go out to dinner for our anniversary. I am leaving a bottle for one of Liam's feedings, which we haven't done before, so pray that he does well for his grandparents!
Quick question for moms who have/do breastfeed their kiddaloos:
Liam seems to be one quick eater. I'm talking less than 10 minutes and he's done! I, however, try for like 45 minutes to get him to latch again to see if he is still hungry. I just want to be sure that he isn't simply sleepy and falling asleep before he's done. Every once in a while I will get him to latch back on, but as soon as my milk lets down, he pulls away. AHH! Anyway, I typically give up without much success in my attempt to get him to eat more. He seems content for the most part and goes 2.5-3 hours between feedings, but I am still wondering if he is getting enough and if my milk supply is getting stimulated enough to hold on. Any comments or advice? I'm probably worrying over nothing, but any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
