We haven't yet and I'm not sure we're going to. I'm not at all against that kind of thing but when it comes to her I'm a huge, huge baby. lol My heart breaks every time she cries even when I know it's for no reason and when it is for a reason like when she gets blood work, a shot, or what have you, it kills me. Don't get me wrong, I don't jump each time she cries but it definitely disturbs me and sets my mommy instincts in motion. I'm not sure I can justify listening to her cry for something I have decided for her like that. It's so strange because I never thought I'd feel that way but I just do. It doesn't bother me when other people get their baby's ears pierced but it will bother me with my own. I think I'll wait until she's older and let her decide on her own.

I go back and forth about it. I have heard it only hurts for a second and some have even told me if the baby is distracted they may not even cry. And of course being this young they will not remember it. My dr does it at 6 months or older so if I am going to do it I will do it at 6 months otherwise I will wait and let her decide.

I don't know. It's just tough on me when she's hurting. I'm afraid of it. Your doctor will pierce her ears? I've never heard of that.

hmmm. I had no idea. I'm not sure my doctor does it. I doubt it actually. lol I'll wait until she gets older and I'll let her decide. There's no hurry. Maybe as she gets older her crying won't bother me as much.

Pretty much the same. I check in every other day or whenever I have a second and read how the other babies are doing in my snowflakes group. I have little to no down time as Cait is into EVERYTHING. She will be walking any minute and she just goes and goes all day with only 1 or 2 short naps. I'm also back to dieting and exercising so any time she has a decent nap I am working out (or trying to catch up with housework/cooking). Busy all of the time! We are doing well except we are short on money lately and things are tight. It's to be expected I guess. I offered to go back to work but DH is having none of it. Not that I wanted to go back anyway...but still.

I hope everyone is well!

I am exhausted now, I can't imagine how it will be when Shaelyn is mobile! Luckily she naps well now, 3 1 hour+ naps a day. Still trying to get the night wakings down though.

I started getting some sleep when Cait was around Shae's age. (btw my baby is 10 months today where did the time go!?) I moved Cait into her room and I quit breastfeeding at 5 months and she has been sleeping so much better. She woke up for the occasional bottle up until about 7 months but since then she's been sleeping like an angel and it's such a relief because that's around the time she started standing and that's when I really needed the sleep. I think, regardless of whether you are breastfeeding or whether she is sleeping in your room, this change will come with time. I think it comes for everyone. I think that those things just helped Cait to get on with it in her case.

I hope you get some sleep soon!
