default sometimes things just fall into place

Post by rhi'smummy on Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:58 am

I've been struggling a bit in my mind recently with regard to Rhianna's sleeping and feeding now I'm pregnant and when the new one arrives. But a couple of days ago, Rhianna had a rare daytime nap, falling asleep on me, without me being able to reach my laptop, or even worse the remote control. But I had my copy of Adventures in tandem breast feeding next to me, which I've been meaning to read, but not got round to. It has some really great advice, gives you all the suggestions, but doesn't say its best to do this. Its amazing how easy it is to struggle with something then realise that lots of other mums have been there before and found ways to cope. It all sorts itself out in the end.
So I've decided to stop worrying that Rhianna is still in our room and still feeds to sleep, and may well do once the new one gets here. But since I decided to stop worrying, Rhianna has for the last 2 nights not fed to sleep in front of the tv, she's told me she wants to go to bed, had a quick suck, rolled into her cot and after a bit of fidgeting has gone to sleep. She's also told me a couple of times she wants to sleep in her room too, so now she's over her cold, we'll try that a bit too.
I'm not expecting it to be plain sailing from here, and it may all fall apart with the new arrival, but I'm just going to keep doing what feels right for us all, and try to ignore those people who've been making me question my parenting ideas.
It really helps to know there are other mums I'm in touch with who dont think I'm weird to be b'feeding while pregnant and expect me to leave Rhianna to cry while getting her ready to be abandoned for a new baby.
Hugs to you all

big hugs to you!

I think that is one of my main worries about conceiving again, but like you say, things fall into place!

I have all the questioning of my parenting skills again now christmas approaches No, i dont want a night out, No i dont want a peaceful night away, No my baby wont starve, but he will cry all night!! wish everyone would bugger off - i have the rest of my life to have nights put - i'll never get this time back now!! (sorry to rant over your thread )

Rant away! It would be lovely if people would mind their own business, or better still tell you what a great mum you are for enjoying your kids while they're small. But it seems its not normal to enjoy your kids, that's why we have to train them to not need us! I could rant all day on that subject.

oh im so glad theres other mums out there who feel the same
also mary i agree with what youre saying, when i was pg with willow and still feeding aeryn (feels like a lifetime ago!) i found once i stopped stressing about how and what i was going to do and let things happen naturally it became a whole lot easier, not as i imagined but easier! good luck!
(im still co sleeping with willow and aeryn and bf willow)

More good news. Rhianna's feeding had got really painful, I wasn't sure if it was her getting a lazy latch or just because of being pregnant, but I had seriously been thinking of weaning, or at least night weaning for that one reason. This last few days she's had a bit of a cold and has wanted to nurse more at night, (I think actually she's been feeling chilly at night and snuggles in to get warm, and enjoys her dummy as its there). Anyway its suddenly stopped being painful, I hope I'm not talking too soon, but the feeling she's sinking her teeth into me just isn't there. She never left teeth marks so I dont think she was actually biting me.
Anyway I thought I'd share with you, if I told anyone else feeding Rhi had become so painful they really would have thought me mad.
