Topic: How to become a country
July 24, 2019 / By Algernon Question:
I am 39 years old and have been surprised with another pregnancy that was not supposed to happen. Although I know weI will love this child, my husband is overjoyed, I am concerned and trying to plan how I will handle another. I want what ends up being best for ALL my children. My husband travels worldwide at least 50% of the working weeks. He is gone all week. I live in a small town away from both families who live in other countries. I have a 12 year old, a 9 year old and a 2 year old. I had trouble breastfeeding our 2 year old and it was stress full. She gained weight too slowly and my milk supply wasn;t great. She was also a very large baby. (longest baby born in our area in 11 years. I took medication to try to get my milk supply up. My husband pressured me to continue. I found nights when he was away to be exhausting. I have decided that I would like to bottle feed this one from the beginning. My thoughts are that because my husband travels and I have limited resources for help, a more consistent schedule with others in the family (older children) helping to feed bottles occasionally and having a more predictable night schedule will end up being more fair for my other children as I will have more time to devote to them. With my 2 year old I struggled with breastfeeding and felt "tied to the couch" feeding for long stretches every hour to two hours. I was up most of the night. I felt exhausted. I ended up starting to feed solids at 4 months. I just feel that bottle feeding from the start would be better for all my family, and give everyone a chance to bond instead of having time for nothing else than breastfeeding. My husband is upset. He seems to feel that breastfeeding is the ONLY answer. I am feeling very pressured and am looking for advice or information that will make it easier. We are very happily married and have 3 GREAT kids. The 2 older one a very happy and are a great help with the 2 year old. I have made a deal with my 12 year old that if he takes the babysitting course I will pay him to babysit and help out after school which he is happy with.
What do you think I should do? Any advice?
