Things I've Learned About Babies

Things I've Learned About Babies:

1) Baby formula is the most disgusting stuff I've ever seen (or smelled). It's even worse coming out.

2) Babies sure do fart a lot. I'm pretty sure mine could win a contest.

3) They also eat a lot. I guess the three meals a day plus two snacks doesn't really work with babies. Maya is chowing down all day and all night long.

4) Babies poop is way worse than even an untrained almost preschooler's.

5) They make all sorts of funny noises that keep you up all night wondering if they are about to die of SIDS. Or are secretly aliens communicating with the mother ship.

And I just have to mention, I now understand why women are so obsessed by their baby's weight. While moms think the world stops at every ounce their baby gains, everyone else wonders why it's so great that your baby weighs the same as a sack of potatoes. Let me just say, I get it! And on that note: my baby weighs 9 lbs. 12 oz. And she's only 6 weeks old! (I have no idea if that's good or not, but to me, she should win some kind of metal.)

Isn't it amazing that moms can have entire conversations about the color and consistency of baby poop? LOL!

hehe :) This post just confirms me wanting to breastfeed- no gross expensive formula, no smelly poop (it's nearly odorless when breastfed), and usually much less gas/stomach problems.... ahhhh can't wait for poop filled days :)
