baby Ritz, Cat crazies, Mommyhood after infertility

We are 2 months already!

And mommy is back to being her wits end!. On 18th feb my little jammy completed 2 months.. Omg time really flies. The last few weeks unfortunately has not been very great. LO has hit purple patch of crying or what i m hoping is purple patch except it’s more like a purple zone! He had been extremely fussy at the boob, his feed tine include anywhere between 5 mins to 1 hr..his gas issues have been crazy and it becomes very difficult for my boobies when he is passing gas with one in his mouth. Our latch training has also gone for a toss.. Between training and getting him to stay focused and drink enough or stop screaming i prefer the later! I have read pretty much every article and have rushed to ER with baby ritz multiple times, consulted multiple lactation consultants but apparently there is no other solution than to just wait and watch…

 

Growth wise lo is doing fine, we weigh almost 4.6 kgs now which is roughly 10 pounds so in 2 months we have almost doubled our bw and finally entered the lowest percentile in terms of weight of a normal child.

Oh and we have started to coo.. And recognise movements.. While bathing ( which we hate)we have also learn to make fish faces at mamma saying please mumma no!

It’s still sinking in that i made this little guy that he is my own flesh and blood.. I love when his tiny hands hold on to me while feeding almost as if staying u r mine!

My other son tho is not very happy.. While thankfully he has not shown any destructive behaviour or haven’t peed on baby ritz’s stuff.. He keeps an arms distance. While earlier it was difficult to catch him even for a hug.. Now he comes and keeps a paw at my leg saying love me! The other day while baby was sleeping i planned to catch a nap.. Pista came and just plonked on my gown.. Wouldn’t get up even when i moved to attend to neel kept trying to hold me back with a paw.. There is a slight tear in my gown! Tho i think over last few weeks he has slowly started to accept BR. Tho he hates it and leaves the room when BR cries!
