Need to vent...and some more advice :)
Heres my vent....I dealt with this with DD1 and am dealing with it again. My DH believes the only reason a baby crys is for food. He doesn't understand that the baby has a desirer to suck and only wants to use my breast as a pacifier. He pushes, so I'll put the baby back on to keep from arguing about it and ofcourse the baby will spit up almost everything it has eaten. Its frustrating because I am trying to only supplement if necessary so it seems they are always on me. He doesn't understand that there are actually other reasons they cry. I have (finally) gotten them to take paci but he refuses to give them to the babies because he says "thats not what they want". I'm frustrated.
Now some advice...when I do supplement, I'll bf and then top them up. My son is ok but I find my daughter ends up spitting up most of what I have given her. I tried different brands but they all seem the same. I am worried because DS is gaining weight and growing much faster then she is. I know she is getting stuff because when I bf she does not spit up and I see her swallowing but she is still hungry most of the time so I top her up and then she spits it up. She was small when we left the hospital (4lbs 10oz) so I know she has more catching up to do but I still worry. Anyone else deal with this.
