The One Thing ‘Teen Mom’ Kailyn Lowry Clearly Isn’t Ready For

Awww! 6

lincoln marshall marroquinA friend of mine once described the first few weeks with a newborn baby as a "beautiful nightmare." Sound familiar? It might to Kailyn Lowry, who is tweeting from the trenches to give us a glimpse of life with baby Lincoln. Happily, she and her family are doing great. There's nothing out of the ordinary going on. Even better, she's kept her great attitude and her sense of humor. You need both when you're dealing with a newborn baby! And Kailyn is definitely in the weeds with this one.

Ooof, that's a long night! I hope she gets a break for a little nap, at least. What happens with a lot of newborns is they start out super sleepy, and you think you're going to ace this baby business. But after about 10 days, many newborns "wake up" and start sleeping less and crying more. That's when the real fun comes in. Did I say fun? I meant sleep deprivation.

Meanwhile, guess what's on big brother Isaac's mind ...

Hold your horses, kid! We just made this one. So cute -- Isaac already wants a sister. Javi tweeted that Isaac meant "nine months from now." So at least Isaac knows his mama can't just whip out another baby immediately! Still, making another baby is usually the LAST thing on your mind when you've got a newborn. You're just trying to survive the current baby, day by day. It's cute when a child asks -- but when adults ask about another, you kind of want to clock them upside the head and say, "Isn't the baby I have right here enough for you?"

Anyway, we'd love to pop over and babysit that new delicious little baby of Kailyn's to give her a break. I'm sure Javi is doing his daddy duty so his wife can rest, though. Can't wait to hear more about how they're doing!

How do you feel when you've just given birth and people ask you about having another baby?

Oh man, our first night home from the hospital he cried nON stop from midnight to 6 am. I had major latch issues and he was hungry and i was practically falling over i was so tired. I didn't know what to do! My husband was terrified.

The government midwife came the next morning like an angel sent to us from heaven. 10 visits until the umbilical cord comes off- 21 days in our case. I think the US should have a supportive program like that.

Anyways, 2 years later, nursing my boy to sleep

one baby at time they both need that mommy time so take time for both of them or they be mad at each other growing up and fight all the time

For the first 4 weeks my son slept 9-12 hours a night. But his pediatrician wasn't happy about it and neither was I when I found out why it wasn't ok. He was waking up shaking and pale, hypoglycemia from not eating enough. I was a young new mommy and didn't know any better when I let him sleep that long all night. Smh, I know😕His pediatrician told me to set an alarm every 2 hrs to breast feed and that fixed the hypoglycemia with no issues. After about a week my little one took over, waking me up like clockwork to eat all night every night like a normal newborn. I actually LOVED getting up every 2 hours with him though! I felt so blessed to be the only one that got that time with him and to be the only one that could feed him while everyone else was sleeping missing out on all his sweet little faces and sounds. At night time, my little boy was ALL MINE lol. But as soon as my son was born (2 1/2 yrs ago now), I wanted another one right away. I still do but we aren't totally done potty training yet. As soon as he's potty trained and in pre-school we're going for it again! :-D

She named her baby after a character on Prison Break. I remember visiting her twitter and she posted a picture of the man who played Licoln on the show. That's creepy and weird. You think this character/actor/man is smoking hot and bangable so you bestow his name on your newborn?

I'm not a mother. But I'm an aunt and I'm raising my sister's 2 daughters. I've had her oldest since she was about 4 months old (she's 2 1/2 now), and the baby since she was about 2-3 weeks old (she's almost 3 months). I may not have went through the labor and the pain of giving birth to a child but I know what it's like after the baby comes home. It's not fun. Especially getting a 2 week old baby and trying to break them from breastfeeding. My sister could just wake up in the middle of the night with her, pop her nipple into her mouth and she'd go back to sleep. I have to get out of bed, make the bottle, warm it up, and then try and get her to calm down. I sit up with her atleast 2-3 hours in the middle of the night, trying to get her to sleep. And when I do manage to do so.. as soon as I lay her in her bassinet she wakes back up. I get maybe 1 night a week where she sleeps from 11 to 5-6am.. And that's if I'm lucky. And she has her to where she has to be held all the time. I'm working with her with the swing, the bouncy chair, and the boppy pillow. It's a slow process but it's working :) I just pray my sister don't have anymore children anytime soon.

I would rather someone ask me if we are going to have anymore, or what about the next, rather than hearing " your pregnant again!"
