I tried commenting on an earlier post in which you talked about your struggles breastfeeding, but my comment disappeared for some reason. I just want to say that you should feel NO SHAME about switching to formula. Every baby is different. Every mama is different. And sometimes formula is the best option. (And I say this as an FP physician who is very much pro-breastfeeding!) Your sweet baby got a lot of breastmilk and now she is thriving with formula. If that makes you happier and a better mama, do not feel bad about it. I'm glad she is sleeping better. My 6-month-old still is getting up at least once every night but I'm hoping that now that we are getting settled from a cross country move she might sleep through soon. We'll see. Your daughter is beautiful!

Thank you for that. Even though I know it was the right choice, it's actually really affirming to hear it coming from an unbiased medical professional. (AKA not myself.) I haven't typed this out yet, since the laws of the internet state that this is the best way to make myself into a liar, but Zoe's actually slept through the night 6 out of the last 7 nights! Three of them were 12+ hour nights, and another three were 10 and then another few after a quick bottle! Long may it continue, despite the fact that I just totally jinxed myself. :-)

I have to admit that I totally just blog stalked you a little bit, and that video of Naomi laughing is pretty much the cutest thing I've seen all day. You have adorable kids. :-)

Yay for sleeping babies! It took my son about 9 or 10 months to sleep all night and now he is an awesome sleeper. I was actually ashamed to tell people how he'd take a three hour afternoon nap and sleep until 9am or so until he started trying to drop the afternoon nap around 2.5. Now, even at 3.5 he still can take a several hour nap and sleep until 8.

I am rather biased, but I also think my kids are pretty cute. And happy that I could actually catch them doing something so adorable on video.

Unfortunately, it would seem that the quickest way to get your kid to stop sleeping is to tell the internet about it. :-( After a blissful couple weeks of 12+ hour nights, she's finally started teething with a vengeance. She's working on her first 5 at the moment and has no idea what to do with herself; it's been a few very long days and nights, but this too shall pass. :-)
