I am new to the boards, but I am a member of my local LLL, so I am familiar with the types of discussions.
My concern, really it is DH's, but I need some feedback to back myself up when we are discussing this.
We have one child, DD, who just turned 1 a week ago. She has never really been a big car fan, and yesterday, became rather fussy and when she does that, she won't give up until out of the car. Is this normal? I think she was bored and wanted to crawl around and play, DH was frustrated b/c we are trying to find a new house and we were going to open houses at the time. It is a "heated" discussion we get into from time to time. I told my mom I wouldn't come up for a family reunion this weekend b/c it is 3 hrs. both ways and we would have to do it in a day. I fear she would freak and we would not have fun at all, plus I don't want to do that to DD, it isn't fair.
Another concern is the way my dd goes to bed. I am still EBFing
with the addition of solids and some water. She nurses to sleep. For the longest time, I will nurse her to sleep at bedtime, she will go down and then be up again to nurse about 30-60 minutes later and then back down. Am I doing something wrong? DH is really supportive with BFing, but from time to time he will comment about how she doesn't go to bed well. I ,too, wish she wouldn't get right back up because I sometimes feel I can't do anything b/c she might wake up. Any ideas? Overall DD is a happy child, just very determined...doesn't like staying in her stroller anymore or carseat..need some tips.
