Here is Michael our youngest with Daddy on Tuesday night when we picked him up from the bus station. He had had a full day flight and then a 6 hour ride in bus to get home.
Ahhhhhh!!!! A week is a week and I won´t ever like being away from him.
This is then.
Three under the age of three. Three in diapers! Three sets of everything!
I thank the Lord for the book "On Becoming Babywise".
Every baby is different but every baby has a metabolism. The theory behind Babywise is a Christ centered home, not a baby centered one. So we schedule the baby. (with flexibility of course. This took me time to learn)
The key is this...
The milk the baby gets is important too. Which the book explains in detail as well. It explains why a baby who falls a sleep nursing is not getting the full milk necessary. The baby should nurse for the full nursing period and then have wake time. I stress this because this is what regulates their metabolism.
Of course, I am summerizing a whole book in one paragraph. My reason in doing so is, I feel, a strong burden to share this, not because I was perfect at it, but because it was a blessing for us, for our marriage and our family. It was a base that we could build upon.
I rarely give advice on my blog. I rarely get preachy, ( I hope I don´t anyway) but I pray this can be a blessing for those of you new mommies out there or those veterans who maybe wondering why "this" baby is so different or for those who have multiple babies.
I enjoyed reminiscing with you all today.
God bless you and your little ones!
