I have come to the conclusion that wherever I go baby B goes. He does not like to be by himself. I am flattered he wants to be near me all the time. But it does take some getting used to. I used my sling wrap today. I am going to get some pointers on the different ways to use it tonight at my mommy meet up group (breast-feeding support group).
I put baby B in the bouncy chair and brought it into the bathroom where I took my shower which I am finding is difficult to get done when I am alone with baby B at home. Getting breakfast cooked and ready is also difficult. I am hoping the sling will help with that. I have been going out to lunch with my husband mostly the last month so that solves that problem.
Anyway, my total focus is Baby B and I have given in to that. I thought I could get other stuff done and multi-task, but the multi-tasking is really about doing normal stuff like showering and getting dressed and feeding myself all the while taking care of Baby B.
When he goes down for a nap – I have some freedom. Like now, he has been fed and is kicking and stretching in his basinette. He is very content and I am going to sneak away to make a turkey sandwich.
He is growing so much and has put on lots of weight. We are going to the doctor today to check out a bit of congestion he has. We should find out how much he weighs and how much he has grown.
I want to pick him up when he cries. I hear tons of people say, “Let him cry or you’ll never get anything done.” Well, I have waited a long time to hold my beautiful boy so I can’t help but want to pick him up and console him. But I do see their point! 🙂
That’s all for today. Have a great day! Thanks for coming to visit the memomuse cafe!
