ClassyMrsA congrats on the new whip! Sounds like a dream with all those features. I'll be looking for something myself in a year. I can't wait. So now that your a 1 car family, how will it work? How does your DH get to work? And re: heartburn I didn't even think of the DR. That makes sense though.
So, we are lucky in that DH's school is really close to us. The woman who teaches in the room next to his lives off the same road as we do, just further south, so she comes up past us every day. They'll carpool sometimes. The rest of the time, I'll drive him. We were a 1 car family back in Colorado for a few months and it wasn't bad. Same distance away from home. My dad said he'll give us his car when he buys a new one so it'll be a temporary situation.
dashook So much sorry! Hs big fail is also when it comes to reading cues and feeding. Alec slept from 10:30 to 4:30 this morning - at 4:30 I hear him fussing to which I would get up, change his diaper, and get him food ASAP to avoid a cry.
H? Puts a binkie in his mouth again and again.
No, dude, I've told you a hundred times !!! At some point I'm no longer a nag, you're just bad at following direction lol
I'm not going to lie, neither one of my kids have/had any feeding cues. If they do, I'm a freakin moron & don't see them.
H goes from happy to crying in 2 seconds, which means he's either hungry or needs a nap. I'm basically watching the clock & trying to feed him before he cries.
D definitely has feeding cues but as an added layer of protection I always give H a ballpark time of when he can expect her to be hungry, e.g., if she's crying at x time, she's likely hungry because it'll have been y hours since she's eaten. So this is why I get annoyed when x o'clock rolls around and he's shoving a binky in her mouth and swearing/shouting instead of bringing her to me to feed like I told him to.
kleigh & dashook I hope my post didn't offend you. Your frustrations with YHs are totally understandable. I've just been having a DD couple of days & feeling like I'm doing everything wrong. Probably lack of sleep & my toddler being a jerk.
Oh my gosh, not at all. I was just kind of using your post to get in more complaints about MH lol

My H holds M for the time it takes her to go from my hands to the bath tub three times a week. Now that she sits propped in her boppy for five minutes before crying he doesn't even take her when I go shower anymore. I just can't stand to hear her scream for no reason and then seeing the look of defeat on his face when she immediately quiets after I take her back. Honestly at this point I think it's my fault as much as the baby's because it's easier to just do things one handed than deal with the aftermath of having him hold her.
dashook I'm so sorry for the crappy sleep. We're back to hourly wake ups and feeding every two hours too. I feel frustrated at times as well and while I feel guilty I can't help it either. Seriously though, we're 8 weeks now. Sleep child!!!
I know H feels defeated that he can't do much to help with L at the moment. His part comes in around 6mo when they are more mobile. For now I usually ask him to give her a bath because it's guaranteed to be 10ish minutes when she's calm and content. I think it makes him feel better that he's helping in some way. Also, it gives me 10 minutes to myself and it's not like he can really mess up a bath.

N roots around and will bang her head against you if she's hungry and/or try to latch onto whatever she can find when she's hungry. MH has trouble with her always being hungry as soon as I hand her over.
We are just trying a pacifier right now. I offered while drowsy and put her in a rocker and I think she may be asleep!

C sometimes gives us feeding cues but will also go from smiles to screaming in about 2 seconds. I think I'm reading some of his cues as playful instead of hunger. Like sometimes he sticks his tongue out while he's playing and other times he does it when he's hungry.
He has also discovered his hands recently and likes to put them in his mouth while I'm trying to give him a bottle. That's fun.
+1 to looking at new cars this year! The backseat of my Mazda 3 is too small for a car seat and right now, the passenger side is eating the dash. Luckily my mom is short! Lol We're hoping to upgrade to a cx-5 this coming year! Plus I really want that car!! Lol

O has hungry cues. He will put his fists near his mouth, root on whoever is holding him. He also does the head bang thing. If I need to see if he's hungry I put my finger on the corner of his mouth, if he goes for if, I assume he's hungry.
I've recently learned his hungry cues are very similar to his I'm tired cues. Mainly the fists in the mouth. If I'm not sure I just go by the clock. See if it's a reasonable time for him to eat.
