Hello my name is Terri, I am a stay at home mom, my wonderful hubby works on the road so we see him every 6-12 weeks. We have a 5 yr old little boy and a two week old little girl. 5 years is a long time and I have forgotten a lot about newborns. Lol. I am currently exclusively breast feeding dd, and she is wearing me out, she bf like a champ but she is using me as a pacifier, she will scream bloody murder until I give her the breast. She will nip at it for a minute and then go to sleep. With ds he would feed then want the binky, dd is completely opposite she wants nothing to do with anything other then the breast. I'm having a hard time getting anything done, because she is either sleeping or screaming for the boob. Ped says its normal and she will out grow it but I'm not sure how much more my poor nipples can take. Lol any advice would be great. Just FYI 98 % of the time I am completely alone, we have a lot of rescue animals that require my care and I need to be able to lay her down for a solid 15 min here and there to feed and clean pens, but I currently can't. I am not opposed to a pacifier, or self soothing. Like I said its been a while I feel like a first time mom again. :) ps how do I share pics from my iPad? We just had dd pics taken and I want so badly to share them!!!
