Dylan Dreyer’s Son
On December 17, 2016, Dreyer gave birth to Calvin Bradley Fichera at 11:52 EST and he weighed 8 lbs, 3 oz.
“I just can’t believe I’m this lucky,” Dreyer wrote in a blog post. “I am so grateful and thank God every night and pray for him to keep his angels around our little one so that he’s safe and protected.”
She continued, “I’ve asked people to try to explain to me why having a baby changes your life in a way you could never imagine. No one can put it into words, but when I saw this little guy and watched him dance around and touch his hand to his face, I fell in love instantly. A love I, too, can’t put into words.”
She Had Problems Breastfeeding
In an interview with People, the meteorologist opened up about how she was unknowingly feeding him less than she was supposed to!
“The first three months, Calvin was looking thin and svelte — he looked like a nice, fit little baby,” said Dreyer. “We go to the doctor and the doctor says, ‘You’re really not feeding him enough food.’ I was exclusively breastfeeding. And he said, ‘[Calvin]’s getting about half of what he should get in a typical day.’ ”
She continued, “And it broke my heart. I cried when he said, ‘You have to supplement with formula,’ because I felt like I’d let him down and my body couldn’t do what Calvin needed me to do.”
The doctor went on to say that she had “small Tupperware” in reference to her breasts, which would make things difficult. Dreyer has since switched to formula and gives Calvin whatever milk she can produce naturally.
She Felt Guilty Not Breastfeeding
Dreyer felt so drained and upset that she wasn’t in the best place to hold her son, so she passed him on to her husband.
“There was one day I was really tired, really on edge, Calvin just kept crying and crying,” she remembers. “I felt myself getting angry and frustrated, and I handed him to [husband Brian] and I said, ‘You need to take him, because I’m in a bad place right now.’ ”
Dreyer continued, “It makes me feel so guilty for having to do that because I couldn’t handle it … [but] that’s why we’re a team, because I could hand [Calvin] off to [Brian].” Well, she seems to be doing a great job now, and she’s certainly ironing out all the kinks of motherhood!
