Hey ladies!! I used to be on this board but have been MIA for so long! but i def want to try to come back around here now that i'll have more time..
anyway i might as well re-introduce myself!
I'm Jessica i'm 23 and DF is 24 and we live about 30 minutes from Washington, D.C.....we had our first baby, Hayden, on April 15th. I was 36 weeks 5 days when we delivered via c-section. He was breech and I was spilling mad protein and had issues so the maternal fetal medicine doctor decided it was best to deliver early.. he was 6lbs 2oz 19inches but healthy!
Breastfeeding didnt work out too well. He is tongue tied which i think was an issue..and he would fall asleep or scream at the breast which just got so frustrating to me..eventually i had to switch to bottles and tried the pumping thing but couldnt keep up with it so i am now all formula.. we are using Similac sensitive because we tried the similac advance early shield and he would spit up all the time and just seemed upset and once we switched he was so much happier and stopped spitting up :-)
we use dr.brown and playtex ventair bottles after trying several different kinds lol i have loads of bottles and still need more!

Hayden is now 3.5 months old (which i cant believe! haha) and he weighed in at 11lbs 4oz at his 2 month appt so he's growing well!

He does have an undecended testicle though which i need to see a urologist about and an umbilical hernia which is starting to repair itself :-) so all his little problems are getting better thank goodness haha

ok after telling you my whole life story.... i'm excited to get back into the swing of things and get to know everyone again :-)

ETA: Oh i was formerlly "Younginlove" haha i forgot i changed my username since being here :-)
