my wife and i alternate nights. it works.My biggest regret early on was both wife and I basically doing the same thing
Oh baby is crying and hungry in middle of night? We were both up to support one another in our minds. All it did was made 2 tired parents instead of 1. Also plenty of frustration and arguments lmao
My kid is a big fart machine. No matter how good the burping went, he was blasting stank. And it never stopped. He farts so friggin loud and has only just begun to show awareness that he's the one making that sound / other people can hear it (at 2.5 yr).Did probably 20 minutes of burp activities and even used a Windi to no avail, he had a huge green poop this morning so was most likely that

I'm not squeamish, but poops of unusual color are more gross than ordinary poo. The color factor can occasionally surpass a terrible odor from time to time.
It blows my mind dailyI know this is a universal parent thing but man. Looking at your kid and just seeing the beauty. What a work of art. I give most credit to my wife as I’m sure all us bros do.
Since this formula shortage is getting real AF, I thought I would share this post I wrote for my group Evidence Based Feeding & Parenting: Formula, Breastfeeding & More. Maybe it could be helpful for someone.
The most important thing I want to impress upon everyone is that unless your baby has an allergy they can take literally any formula. Sensitive and gentle formulas are mostly just marketing. That being said, there are certain formulas that are more compatible with each other and can be used without making any transitions.
"The ideal best fit is to stick with the same category of formula. These formulas will be completely interchangeable with each other. If your child has an allergy be sure to check ingredients and speak to your allergist if you can.

In a pinch and barring allergies, your baby can drink any formula labeled Infant Formula on the package. Most babies do just fine switching, and you have to do what you have to do to keep your baby fed. Remember: using imported formula, homemade formula, or unpasteurized/unscreened donor milk is very dangerous."
We traveled plenty with our convertible. Just bought a travel backpack bag for it and checked it. When she needed it in her seat, we brought it on the plane with us since they let you board early with babies. Just had husband get the car seat loaded and strapped in while I took kiddo to the bathroom to do the last diaper change and she and I boarded near the end.did you buy a travel car seat, or you traveled with the normal one? My normal one is a convertible and it's huge. We traveled pre-pandemic with the infant seat and it was no big deal.
