Those people who have been hounding us to register for baby D...well guess what your wish came true. We registered at Target and Toys R Us this weekend.
Registering could have possible been the hardest, most tiring and time consuming thing I have ever done. People wanting to touch you, give you advise and just plain be rude to you. Lets just start with bottles. I mean how hard can bottles be right. They are just milk distributors. I just went with what my SIL used...Dr. Brown bottles. Then as I was scanning the Dr. Brown box one lady said " OH hunny you don't want those...it will take forever to clean those and when you lose parts it will be horrible" I just smiled and said well I guess I will just learn. Seriously, just buy your bottles and I can buy mine. I have heard several...several mommies say that if you baby is fussy or colic at all Dr. Brown are the ones to use. So by gosh I am going to try them
Then bottle warming. Again, I have known several babies who never had their bottles warmed. I mean .....room temp is just like warming? So I did not register for warming solutions (car warming, night warming..etc) So I am choosing for my own sanity to leave water at room temp and mix formula. Again...I get the " well a warm feeling in his belly will make him sleep". Well..when he is screaming in a restaurant because his bottle isn't warm then I will let them come watch him?
I know all these strangers were just trying to help, but to each their own. I also received the breast feeding lesson. Man I love hearing those. But the way I look at it is I have been sticking a needle in my stomach for 7 months and still have 2 more months of needles. Then after the baby is born I will be sticking myself in the stomach for 6 more weeks. So my choose to not breast feed might be selfish but at some point I just don't want things attached to my body anymore. U feel me? High risk pregnancies are not the easiest and when baby boy comes out I just want to gaze at him and soak him up...and when guest come over to feed him then I can sleep :)
So the adventures in registering are something I will never forget. I hope I am never that person that just throws ideas at random people in the aisle of Target.
