Right now I am breastfeeding with the exception of a bottle or 2 of a preemie formula. The formula with me d/c'd once he shows that he is maintaing his weight curve and then he will be weaned off. DH obviously can't help with the breastfeeding and during the day I do everything. At night, I pretty much do everything too.

Our compromise is, when he comes home from work, he cooks dinner and keeps the other kids busy so I can tend to the needs of Kenny. Usually, I will nurse Kenny while he is cooking dinner so we can chat and catch up etc. On the weekends we will do a deep clean and send the kids upstairs to clean their rooms and we will bust out the cleaning downstairs so we can enjoy the weekends. He helps out much more on the weekends but I also chose to cloth diaper and he's still a bit intimidated and doesn't feel comfortable doing it yet. Im okay with that.
Melissa, Wife to Kenneth and Mommy to Courtney, Mikayla and Caelyn, and our BOY Kenny!
