    I tried to “clink” cheers with your glass but fear smashing my glass against the computer monitor screen.  smile

    Kudos for you getting out and having a night out.!

    I’m so glad you were able to enjoy your night out!  I should have done more of those earlier.  I had several friends recomend that I try throwing one back right before nursing to see if that would help Charlie sleep.  I never actually tried it but I was so tempted so, do let me know what your experimentation shows.

    I am also so very glad that you were able to get the reflux juice.  I’m sure your life will be much more pleasant now.

    Girlfriend, you are so right to be enjoying your Mai Tai! I have the best lactation consultant that Kaiser has to offer and she is fantabulous. She has always told me to drink up (well, maybe not exactly like that) or at least not to freak out about the alcohol unless I am totally shit canned. Those Crazy Canadians with their cute accents and level heads.

    Good for you!!  I’m glad to hear you got out and enjoyed yourself.

    How bad is it that I’m actually looking forward to my three day conference at the beach?  I know there is some evening celebrations and I can’t wait - plus?  The whole bed to myself?  It’s all just a little too exciting.

    Yep, that’s what the lactation consultant told us. As long as you aren’t feeling the effects your a-okay. I enjoy my cocktail after I get done nursing the Wee One. By the time he’s ready to eat again, we are good to go.

    Looks like you had so much fun! And man, you’ve earned it. Still, I’m jealous. I’m at least 6 months away from a cocktail and girl, I’ve been needing one after our looooong car trip to Indiana and back.

    Glad you got to get out of the house! I’m sure it did you good. I’m really going to try that this time around. I don’t think I went anywhere for like 6 months. It was bad! No wonder I was a cranky bitch. The only thing I can warn you about drinking with a newborn is that a)You might need a glass of wine to get in the mood for that 6 week mark b) You might feel violated when your husband continues to rub your butt while your are nursing your infant back to sleep.  Gettin’ action at both ends that way was a little disturbing. XOXO

    I’d totally drink to that—and hell, i bet the small alcohol content in your milk would help baby O sleep more—LOL.

    I love the picture!

    I’m so glad that you got a night out. We all need one now and then.

  • June 18, 2007

    I’ll drink to that!

    I too have recently re-discovered the joys of a mixed drink/ glass of wine.

  • June 18, 2007

    Good for you!  Don’t deprive yourself of some fun times just cause you’re a mommy of 2 now.  Everyone needs a drink sometimes….

    Love the pic. Good for you!

    2 with reflux? God must be playing a cruel joke on you Les. I remember the best part about having Keaton was that he didn’t have reflux. Okay I am sure there were better things about him, but they escape me at the moment.
    Seriously switch his formula to Enfamil AR. I swear on my life it will change yours. Gavin was so bitchy until we switched him to it. It saved my sanity.

    Hooray! Such a cute pic…

    CHEERS!

    Pump ‘n’ dump is a beautiful thing.

    I don’t know if your guy has the same deal going on that our guy did—he was a couple weeks early and the docs thought his fussiness, colic, what have you was because his nervous system didn’t quite have a chance to develop. He would startle easily, freak out, etc. Even when I was nursing him! (Did I already post about this? Or leave a comment? I have no idea.)

    Well, it left us jangled for awhile (some would say I’m still jangled—ha) but he grew out of it.

    Word up!!!  I freely admit that I did not deprive myself of a nightcap on many, many nights when I knew I would be nursing Jacob within an hour or two.  He is not dead yet, no siree.
