I figure I'll use this thread to vent and babble about myself endlessly and about things that have/do/will happen to me. Like a blog but mildly less self-aggrandizing, although just as inconsistently updated.
Thank you for the support. People with 'easy' babies really don't quite understand how infuriating it is when they start demanding and chastising those of us with more difficult to care for babies.My Butt Hurts said:Like they say about thumb suckers, they won't go to college sucking their thumb. Eventually he'll be out of your bed. My son slept with us because I was nursing, but it was quite hard getting him out of our bed. He could never soothe himself back to sleep without being rocked. Crying it out wasn't an option for us either, he would barf. With my daughter, she slept next to us at night in a co-sleeper, but in her crib for naps, and it was much easier. Soon, you might be able to persuade him to take a nap hugging favorite stuffed animal instead of a person. The older he gets, the easier it will be.
What I really want to say here though is DO NOT have unprotected sex unless you want another baby in 9 months. Your wife WILL ovulate eventually, and it will happen before her next period, so you won't know when she is fertile.
