Solo Mama

Kurt is going to write a separate post on this to share his perspective, but here we are – 1 month in without nursing and Iza is still crying and latching onto my leg at every moment. She is what we refer to as “Solo Mama” (only interested in being with me). I am exhausted from the noise… constant, penetrating crying which makes my milk start up again and my head pound. I don’t know how to handle this, except to run in the other direction. He has these perfect little moments with her when I am not around. She is laughing, playing and happy. Bring her near me, and she cries.

As a mother I could get upset about this, but instead I am just getting annoyed an impatient. I want my little girl to want to play with me; to feel excited when she sees me and want to do something fun!
