I didnt feel better until we were home and my dad took Hayden for about 2 hours and took care of him and fed him and all that good stuff so that I could get a little nap. That was the greatest feeling seeing my dad with him grandson for the first time.
My son has been in the 90th percentile in height, weight and head circ, since his 2 week check up and he will be 3 this year. He is a VERY HEALTHY boy !!
I dont understand why ppl say that babies that are formula fed have earaches and arent healthy and get sick all the time. My son was never sick other than the ocasionaly runny nose after being outside and after getting his flu shot. He has NEVER had earaches either, not one. My brother and I wear both BF and we had earaches constantly, my brother even had to have tubes in his ears by the time he was 3 !!
