Udder-ly tired

2 May

So it’s 12:16 in the AM and there is no end in site. He’s been crying, fussing, whining for an hour now and he is bright eyed and bushy tailed. The silent dialogue between he and I goes something like this….
Baby: Hey mom, can I just stay latched onto your boob for the next two hours for comfort even though you will end up feeling like a cow who’s been milked for too long and your nipples will burn like the dickens?
Me: Dear son, no. We must come up with another solution to keep you happy and quiet. Like the swing, bouncer, perhaps a pacifier?
Baby: screw you mom. Wanna hear how loud I can scream? Gimme the goods. Now.

    How I remember those days! It got to such a point that I started nursing in bed. Once she fell asleep, I’d pull myself away and fall to sleep, myself. Imagine hubby’s surprise the first time he found her in bed with us! A communal bed worked for us. . . for a little while, anyway!

    It’s never easy being a mom. It’s the busiest time of our life. You can be fahibonasle and discreet even if you’re already a mom or a breast feeding mom.

    Hi Caitlin! My daughter just had a baby on this past Tuesday, and she has a book called “The Happiest Baby on the Block” by Harvey Karp. This book is a game changer. Wish I would have had it when I had my 5 kids. The basics can be read in just a short read. Swaddling is the key which unlocks the !!! Best wishes to you and good luck with your precious little one!!
