All of the sudden he was back to latching onto me and only takes the bottle when he needs it.
So maybe I can do this after all. Although giving up dairy is extremely hard. I live of milk and cheese.
This!!! I was just going to suggest this. Madeline is three weeks old and still under birth weight but she does have dairy allergy that we just discovered. I have cut out all dairy. She seems happier although still very needy. She is eating a bit better and those green poos have stopped. We are working sooo hard! I can't imagine what you aregoing through with two!!! You are so awesome for even trying! Keep your head up and know that most likely with time it will get much better!
