Today we had a trip to the movies with my mom, my aunt, my cousin Robyn and her son Sean. Our local movie theater does something called “Stars and Strollers”; they allow you to bring babies of any age, they provide changing tables and diapers and a microwave, they have the sound lowered slightly, and you get to enjoy a movie without worrying if your baby cries or needs to be fed. The movie was License to Wed- an okay movie. It was cute but could have waited for video. Jakob didn’t do too well at first. He started to cry and then couldn’t be consolled. He was hungry and didn’t want to feed but kept jamming his fists in his mouth instead of trying to suck. Finally my mom got up with him and walked around, and he fell asleep until the end of the movie. It was so frustrating and I was ready to give up breastfeeding altogether, but everyone has told me that he is probably reacting to the vaccines from yesterday- apparently the second day is worse than the first.
He’s been really fussy all day, doesn’t know what he wants, wants to eat but doesn’t want to, tries to sleep but cries instead, so I’m really hoping that it is just from the vaccine and will have passed by tomorrow.
He was in his usual good mood for about 10 minutes earlier, so I took the opportunity to grab a photo of him in his cute little outfit.
