comment I'm getting distant from my father
Good post, but I hate the word "bonding". In my experience, if people are talking or thinking "bonding" when they're doing something, then they're doing anything but. Maybe it's just me but my great relationships aren't work. Not at all.

@Guillaume The key to the fright here tho is honesty. Sometimes life is scary.

"but to do best by him I need to prepare by learning what to look for and how / what to teach him." << Precisely. That's the challenge. But once you learn to ride that bike...

comment When should we transition second child into first child's room?
As a Major Dad (so to speak) I will just go ahead and tell you outright that your 'worry' is a corner case. At 3, it's an experiment on his part just to see what happens. nobody really knows the brain of a 3 yr old, but I say it's not a sign anything in the slightest. Since you've caught and dealt with it, I doubt you will see it again. 2ndarily, as an extra credit assignment, if you're telling us that your boys are named "A" and "B" then I can't help but wonder if the rest of your life is that sterile. How about some imagination? Al And Bill come to mind.

comment How often should my wife breastfeed our newborn?
Took my vote back. I don't think it's productive to dig out old posts. It's one thing if they're active, but when they've not seen any activity in so long, it's not really helpful to bring them back up.

comment Avent manual breast pump problems
What would be some options for StackEx sites he could post this? Also, it's been a while but i believe we had the same problem and it was dishwasher junk in the crevices breaking the seal. you might also search this forum on the diffs between manual and mechanical pumps. Long story short: they're more expensive, but are worth it for various reasons.

Welcome to the board! +1 for your last sentences. New parents especially get to surfing and feel like they're doing it wrong because of everyone elses highlighted euphorian anecdotes.
