Eats: Nurses great! Dad gives him a bottle every once in a while. He does great going back and forth from bottle to breast, not having any issues.

What I Know For Sure About Motherhood

Happy Mother's Day

Happy First Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!…. Ok, I know it isn’t Mother’s Day anymore. It was yesterday. I meant to post this yesterday but the day was hectic and it got away from me. This is about what I know for sure so far about motherhood, after one month in.

I know for sure that my days are a bit more unpredictable and busier, especially on days like yesterday with multiple family get togethers. Some days it feels like all I do is feed my baby, burp him, change his diaper, rock him, put him to bed, and do his laundry. It’s amazing how that can fill up my WHOLE day! [Read more…]

But I guess the baby has to come out one way or another.  And from what I have read the once you have reached 41 weeks that there is not any benefit for the baby to stay in there and actually increases the risk of a still birth.
