So my days are consumed with resting on the couch and taking care of Noah (and making sure my littles don’t kill themselves *smile*). I am actually feeling pretty good these days. Chad wants me to rest at least one more week before I start tackling *all* of the housework that needs to be done… I am ready to start NOW, but I know that he knows best.
For a new (again) momma, I am getting a good bit of sleep. Noah is sleeping 5-6 hours at night. None of my other babies sleep so long at this age and I am already spoiled. She nurses every 2-3 hours during the day, but that is fine by me if it means she will go longer at night.
And speaking of nursing, I have discovered the BEST nursing pillow!!! With my last two babies, I used a pillow made by Leachco and it worked great! I had planned to buy a boppy this time (as my old pillow has seen better days) but after reading reviews and looking at the different pillows that are out there, I decided to give the "My Brest Friend" Nursing pillow a try. Since I had a c-section, I have been reluctant to use it since it straps around your waist. I used it for the first time tonight and I regret not using it sooner! It was very comfortable, eased my sore back, and put Noah at the perfect level for nursing!
This pillow was a bit pricey but I think it will be worth every penny. The one I chose was the deluxe and it was around $40. I went with the baby blue one because (1) it coordinates with my glider rocker and (2) since I bought it before Noah was born, I didn’t want a "girlie" nursing pillow in the event that we had a boy (3) the blue is a very relaxing and calming color.
That is pretty much the only thing new around here but I hope to post with some pictures SOON!.
