Life's A Gas

The Ramones had no idea how true this would be for El Bambino. He's full of it. Gas, I mean.

The boy nurses like a racehorse! Not that I know what a racehorse nurses like..do thy even nurse? i don't think so...but what I mean is, he's fast. He gulps and smacks. There's no "quietly" nursing this guy.

I've read the book, the blogs, the forums. We've latched, un-latched an re-latched again. I've used the cradle hold, the football hold, nursed sitting up and lying down. I've dropped the beans and broccoli, even the occasional chocolate. All to no avail.

Life is just a gas right now.

Is it making him fussy? You could try homeopathic tummy ease drops. Boys are such greedy nursers! LOL!
