A sparse sampling of cloth diapers in teeny tiny sizes is ordered. We’ll see if we can make it or not. So far, a lot of other things I have failed at:
Giving birth without drugs
Giving birth naturally
Using no pacifier
Breastfeeding (still kind of iffy at this point)…
So I’m really not holding out hope. But my husband is all behind it. We’ll see how long that lasts.
None of those things are failures. Some were out of your control.
Patience, when you’re sleep-deprived, still recovering from major surgery and trying to meet the demands of a new person as well as take care of your regular life, is not something that’s expected. You just do the best you can. That’s all any of us can do.
I gave a pacifier to my son. He loved it. He’s 21 now, and no longer uses it. In fact, you could line him up with 50 other 21 year olds and NOT BE ABLE TO TELL which of them were given a pacifier and which were not.
I tried to give one to my daughter because I needed a friggin’ break. Ha. Did not work.
Line her up with other 15 year olds… and you guessed it, you won’t be able to tell who had one and who didn’t.
Your baby, your choices. No matter which ones you make, someone will not approve.
This does not matter. They are not raising your baby.
