Kelly: Yo, what up?
We're the Kahlers, and I'm Kelly, and I'm gonna show you what we are doing today.
We're gonna do kind of like a follow me and our family about nursing.
At nighttime, normally I just wear a bra and underwear. And I normally wear nursing pads, because I leak a lot still while nursing one at a time.
And when I'm just hanging around the house I normally just wear a big shirt and just comfy clothes. I'm very much into loungewear.
The second I get home from somewhere I put on more-comfy clothes.
Also, it makes your clothes last longer, in my opinion.
Paul: So as Kelly gets ready and tries to figure out her outfit for the day, I get the kids ready.
So here's Dree.
Can you say hi?
Paul: What are we gonna do?
Paul: You wanna get ready?
Are these your clothes?
Kelly: I pulled a couple dresses that I wear in rotation on the bed.
And so mostly I just like dresses that are big and just flowy that I don't have to worry about.
These are all pretty long because I'm still chasing Dree around which is our 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter.
I chase her around, so I just want to make sure nothing's showing when I have to bend over and grab things or whatever happens.
These are lifesavers.
I would suggest getting little slip dresses.
These are from Target.
They're supersoft and comfortable, and they're V-neck. And then they have lace at the bottom so if you show, if it shows under your dress it doesn't matter.
And with these, I normally will wear one of them, and I'll just pull up my dress and to pull down my bra and I'll nurse like that, if I'm out and about.
So I have a dress underneath, and I don't care if people see it. But I'm still covered and I can wear dresses that are higher.
Today, I'm probably gonna wear more of, like, this where I don't have to wear the slip.
I might still wear it 'cause it goes high on the side. But this way I can just unbutton and I can Ergo nurse, because I know we're gonna be out and about. So I'll probably be babywearing and nursing at the same time, so I kinda have to think ahead for that.
All right, let's get dressed.
So one thing that happened with Rowley was he had lip- and tongue-tie, and so we went to get a consultation done because I noticed it.
He was nursing okay, but he clicked a lot and he kind of would freak out a lot, so it wasn't like he could really get a good latch.
And his tummy hurt often.
He was always arching his back, crying, holding his fist.
You could just tell his tummy hurt.
So we got a consultation for both of them.
Pencey, he said, she had a slight lip-tie. But if I wasn't feeling any issues while nursing then it was totally fine.
With him he said, "Yes, revision would be really good."
So we went for it and that was at 5 weeks old.
Paul: So we're back in Irvine to go and get Rowley's lip-tie checked out to make sure everything's healing properly.
Doctor: The sites, they look great.
Paul: It's okay.
Kelly: We had to do stretches.
"We" being my husband, Paul, and my dad helped a lot when Paul was working.
Do stretches under his tongue and his lip. And it was the saddest thing ever, but in the end I'm so glad we did it.
It really helped with his able –
You can still hear a click but it's because he has a high palate.
But his latch is so much better and his tongue has more mobility.
So all together, good procedure, glad we did it.
Paul: So after I get the car seats ready, I grab the diaper bag.
The diaper bag has a change of clothes for all three kids – especially Dree, since she's just learned to get potty trained – and extra diapers, wipes, all the essentials you need for having three kids.
Check out Pencey.
I always make sure to get the car seat straps and everything pulled back.
Makes it a lot easier getting two kids in.
So just put 'em in.
She's so stinkin' cute.
Are you the slobber monster?
Let go of daddy's shirt!
Let go of daddy's shirt!
And we're ready to go.
This is our setup.
All three kids in the back.
Dree – Dree's still rear facing.
Kelly: How old is she?
Paul: She's 2 and a half, but she'll probably be rear facing for another six months.
Kids are sleeping.
We're getting off the freeway going to get some – kind of an early lunch, it's 11:30.
They'll probably sleep for a good hour or so.
Kelly: Please don't say that.
You're gonna jinx it, and they're gonna wake up as soon as we get there.
Rowley probably will.
Yeah, Pencey, she'll wake up and she'll just hang out in her car seat.
Kelly: Rowley and Pencey, nope.
They're in their car seats.
Pencey's awake and Rowley's asleep.
Which is normal for Pencey.
She's normally awake when we're out and we're just hanging out.
Dree told me she needed to go pee the second we got here so she's doing good.
Paul: Do you want to sit next to sissy?
Kelly: So we just finished lunch.
Now we're gonna go to the ENC, and we'll show you what that is.
Paul: Hey, silly.
What are you doing?
Dree: I'm pooping.
Paul: You're going poop.
So proud of you.
Kelly: Is it easier to go on your baby toilet?
Kelly: Right now we just got to the ENC, Environmental Nature Center.
And so it just has different areas.
Paul: Think we can catch him.
He's a baby, he's a baby.
Rowley's enjoying himself.
We had to wake him up to come here.
Are you okay, bud?
He's having fun.
Yeah, this place is supercool.
Kelly: So nursing in Ergo's pretty easy.
Right now I'm wearing a sports bra, and it kind of helps keep my boobs up and in her mouth so I can do two hands.
Sometimes I might have to readjust, but for the most part she can keep it in her mouth.
Pencey fell asleep nursing, and she's really enjoying just being all cuddly.
Paul: So now we have to switch babies.
She's sleeping, he's hungry.
Kelly: She just gave me a little toot.
Paul: Successful transfer.
Kelly: And now he's nursing.
Paul: Looks like we're in the forest, huh?
But we're just in the middle of Newport.
Rowley's eating so good.
Kelly: He's liking it.
That was a bit of our day.
Just me nursing, around, out and about, and how we do it.
It's pretty simple now.
It was a little bit harder when they were younger.
I did a lot more tandems, nursing.
But that's it.
Paul: I think we're on a routine now and kind of know what the babies want and when.
It's a fun day.
If you guys have any questions please leave a comment down below and we'll try to get back to them as soon as possible.
Kelly: And if you wanna see any more of our adventures, you can go to YouTube, and we are the Kahlers.
So peace out.
