Like many breastfeeding Moms, throughout my breastfeeding journey I pumped to store milk should there ever be a situation I’m not able to immediately feed the baby. My issue each milk producing round (currently on number 3) has been that I’d been so tired or busy when transferring the milk from bottle that I forgot to label the pump dates.
Now with my eldest son, I was completely confused and dumbfounded when he was a baby and had drastic mood swings. Mainly because he was such calm and quiet baby so when he’d be crying more than from being hungry I was really concerned. When things seemed out of wack like him suddenly waking more frequently at night or him protesting and screaming bloody murder for a diaper change, I’d turn to google to figure out what was going on. I ended up finding baby forum chats about other parents going through similar events. The conclusion and answer to their baby’s new behaviors was that they were in a leap!
A bus to train to bus trip that would normally take 40 minutes became an almost 2 hour trip to travel home. After waiting in a cold bus station for 20 minutes while the blizzard got more intense outside, the bus finally showed up! We were literally shaking in our boots!
