I hate to say this, but I figure you will understand. I get sad when I read in my DDCs how much weight other mamas' babies are gaining. Bennett is gaining just fine, for him, but when I read about how a baby has gained 2 pounds in two weeks or something like that, I just have to stop reading. Mostly these feelings come up around weight because I felt slightly harassed by the various nurses, consultants, etc about weight and breast feeding. But sometimes I also get sad when I read about how smiley some one's 2 week old is. Benn has been smiling for a while, but he still doesn't smile *for me* if that makes sense.

I just needed to get this off my chest.
Thanks.

{{{HUGS}}} I felt that way a lot right after John was born. After a year, it has gotten easier but I still feel sad, jealous and sometimes angry when I hear about what other kids are doing. As for the doctors and nurses, they can kiss your butt. As long as your son keeps gaining, even if it is not a lot, they should leave you alone. If they won't, let me know and I will come there and kick their butts for you.
