MS7.5

This week hubs is away on business, so it’s my first week alone with our little guy. We are having so much fun. Our main activities have included going to the doctor (baby’s growing!), picnicking in the park with a friend, having tummy time, and interviewing nannies. Everywhere I go, I have a little partner in crime, and I’m loving it. Read the rest of this entry »

I know just as much about parenting as my husband.

I’ll ask for his advice about the baby.

He’ll say, “I don’t know,” with a genuine shrug and a clueless look.

That’s when it hits me: We know exactly the same amount about parenting. Read the rest of this entry »

My Breastfeeding Story

March 3rd, 2015

Every mom’s experience with feeding her newborn is unique, just like pregnancy. But I wanted to share a little about mine, in case it speaks to any other moms out there.

During my pregnancy, I never thought a lot about my birth plan. In fact, when I filled out a simple, multiple-choice questionnaire at my doctor’s office with my birth plan preferences, I found that I was very nonchalant about it. Did I want the lights dimmed? Did I want lots of people in the room, or just me and my husband? So when I had to schedule a c-section, I was cool with it. Not in “the plan”? Not a problem! So long as Judge was healthy, that’s all that mattered to me.

There was just one thing I knew for sure: I would start breastfeeding my baby as soon as possible. It’s free! (Plus super healthy for baby, and all that jazz.) Yep–breastfeeding was in “my plan.” Read the rest of this entry »
