Lesbian mother to 7 month old Lola

Ok here is my families responce.
breast or bottle? DD couldn't take to the breast so it's bottle for him.
Cot or co-sleep? It's a bit of both. If he wakes up to early he is in my bed as quick as I can so it doesn't wake his big sister.
Cloth or disposable? Disposable, I don't have time to wash cloth nappies on top of everything else that us mums have to do
Drive or walk? Well I walk but I have a licenece but mo one is willing to teach me (it's a long and funny story havet o tell you some time).
Cat or Dog? Neither as landlord won't allow animals on the property evern though our dog stopped and cornered someone trying to break in.
Routine or go with the flow? We have tried a routine but he just won't take to it like his sister did, so for him at the moment it's go with the flow.
Controlled crying- yes or no? Have tried it with ds but as he has medical issues it's not really good for him so we have tried and it's slowly working a different aspect to it.
Dummy? No i actidently gave him the wrong kind and now he won'ttake any. I think that that might have something to do with his sleeping problem.
