Good by sex life, hello kid with attachment issues for the rest of his life. Break habits like that now, or you'll have a 16 year old thumbsucker who needs his mommy to wipe his ass.

10 year old breast fed sounds perfectly normal for the Maury Povich show.


Yeah, cut that kid off, they make kids beds for a reason

Congrats!


on a side note, my daughter's 10 and my son's 7. It feels like it was yesterday that I burrito wrapped our daughter and just a couple weeks ago, the first boy called wanting to talk with her... just so everyone knows, I'm scared shitless... Okay, gotta go shine the gun now.

Congratulations, I remember when our first was born & they said we could take him home. I looked at the wife & said are they nuts we aren't ready for that. I was wrong, but it sure was scary & cool all at the same time.

Yeah, and when you get home no one is there to cook for you any longer. I hated that part.

Beautiful baby, you should be very proud!

Mine wouldnt sleeep on his back after 2-3 months old.

Congrats on the new baby. It gets better every day. Mine is now 6 months. Like others have said learn his schedule and try to get sleep any time he is down.

I think it's like that for most guys. There's nothing better than coming home to a smiling baby though.

Congrats! We just brought our son home Thursday. My wife and I wanted to be able to hear him so he sleeps right beside our bed in a bassinet? crib whatever. Its nice because you can hear even his slightest toss and turn, yet he is also getting use to his own bed. It worked for our daughter as well. Just an Idea. Congrats again

my daughter wouldn't sleep so I would wrap her up and put her in the carseat base and sleep next to her on the floor. she would go out instantly.

i remember that feeling. my boys are 4 and 5 now. my oldest was breast fed, until he was 3-4 months, he still acts like hes attached to the nipple, my youngest was never breast fed. and hes a daddys boy.
