My Boys!

This little guy is really chunking up. We were having issues breastfeeding, he was so sleepy and jaundiced that he wasn't eating enough so I put him on formula. He loves to eat, even though he usually sleeps through most of it. When he wakes up to eat he screams his head off until you get that bottle in his mouth. After dealing with Nicolas' issues we just decided we wanted to enjoy this little guy, and having him on the bottle has been a life saver. He is reminding us more and more of Nicolas. He's really gassy and grunts and pushes all day and night long. Any suggestions on things that might help him? We are so exhausted taking care of him at night and listening to him try to pass gas or poop, I hope he grows out of it really fast because we need sleep!
I love spending my mornings with these two cute guys! Its a huge adjustment taking care of three kids, most days I feel like a bad mom because I can't give Kaden and Nicolas the attention they need. I am so grateful for my parents, they help so much with the kids. They get them up and going in the morning and get Kaden to school each morning. After Jackson has his morning feeding we head out for a long walk with my sis in law Jess and her baby, trying to lose these pregnancy pounds! I'm so lucky to have 3 handsome, healthy boys!

I love all the new pictures. Jackson is so adorable! I don't know how you mothers do it! I'm going to be doomed when I have kids, I already have such a hard time sleeping at night as it is. Throw a baby in the mix and I'll be a zombie!

my friends baby had the gas/poop problem at night. She did something and it really worked. I will ask her. Us mom's gotta stick together. how is that for some great English?

your boys are so adorable. They really are beautiful kids. (even if they are boys)

I agree - those boys are darling. We put Sam on the Gentle-Ease (not sure of the spelling) formula - it was for bellies and gas etc. This was after our doctor said he just tired of seeing the same for walls (how does that help with gas??) She was a nut!!

When R was 3 wks to 3 mons old he was very colicky, he had to give him gas drops. Also, I had to rub his tummy from 1-3am every night. It was very exhausting, i cried a lot of the nights!! My sister had one of her boys that she couldn't eat chocolate while she nursed. Also, I know they have special formulas for upset tummys. I hope he gets over it quick. Good luck!!
