is beginning to gel into a bit of a routine. We have pretty much gotten the hang of the breastfeeding thing. We are still on a 3 hour schedule, but I’ve stopped setting an alarm and diligently timing the sessions, which is much less stressful for me. I still need to figure out how to nurse in public (so we can get out of the house more) and how the give a bottle/avoid engorgement thing works, but so far, pretty good. I mainly want to know how to hide the fact that I’m nursing and how to nurse without my nursing pillow (My Brest Friend, which kicks the Boppy’s butt!).
Yesterday we made it out to Toys R Us after his pediatrician appointment (where we learned he is now 9 lbs, 6 oz!) and we went out to eat at the mall down the street. Afterward, the baby was still sleeping so we also went strolling and did a little shopping. A couple of successful small outings! We were starting to get a bit stir crazy being home 24/7 and for me, doing almost nothing but feeding baby.
Other things… I don’t think i mentioned that I’m back in my pre-pregnancy clothes and have been for about a week. I’m shocked at how quickly I got my body back (2 weeks post-birth). I thought being an old Mama would kick me in the butt with the weight, but I feel great and like my body just bounced right back. No stretch marks either. I got lucky on that front for sure.
