I was never going to give my babies a pacifier... never. I mean wouldn't that cause nipple confusion? Wouldn't they become addicted to the pacifier and end up sucking on it well into their toddler years like Suri Cruise? Well I threw out these fears a couple of weeks ago and we tried to give each of them a soother. Isla was adamantly against something that she could suck and yet would not feed her. Alice on the other hand... it was more like love at first sight. As soon as she gets it in her mouth her eyes start to droop.
Oh and they still take the boob like they were made for it (which in fact they were)...
|so so good...|
I was convinced that our babies would not get flat head syndrome. Flat head syndrome happened to babies of parents who left them constantly in their car seat or constantly lying down. I was going to wear my babies constantly, never leave them in the car seat outside of the car and thus they would never suffer the dreaded flat head. Well I love my sleepy wrap and so do they, we hold them constantly, we never leave them in the car seat and voila... Isla has a mad case of flat head syndrome on one side of her head!!!
|here she is propped onto her other side in hopes that things will even out...|
I would never never ever dress them the same. They aren't the same person, so why would I ever put them in the same clothing. Well we live in Ontario and it gets cold here. We spent the better part of Saturday out shopping for cold weather gear for Isla and Alice and it was tough. As in they are small and most outdoor one piece-ers come in size 0-6 months which is a large range. We came home with two matching fleeces from MEC and tried them on them.... way too big. I found two matching 0-3 month-ers at Joe Fresh on Sunday and they fit much better. Apparently companies don't make a plethora of colour options when it comes to fleece... so matching they are.
This is a one time occurrence... I swear.
|and Isla's propped up once again...|
So apparently all of that judging was naive on my part. At this point if it makes our lives easier I am all for it.
