I love laying down to nurse, I generally only do it at night though.
We ran errands today. Two grocery store stops and the post office. I had all three of mine today, and it went pretty well. Jonah slept most of the time and fussed just a little. Had company, fixed my internet that has been down all week. So maybe I can post a few pics later. Did laundry, swept the floors, so pretty much back to normal here!
I'm good. Just taking it easy and eating lots. I'm not feeling as gross as before so that's good.
Thanks for the pep talk Laurie. I love your experience! I've never had a hardcore nurser before. It seems to weird. I don't remember ever snacking a night when nursing DD!
I can totally nurse laying on my side. It's great! None of my sofas/couches are deep enough to nurse laying down on. Do you put baby near the edge or the back?
Ugh! Falling asleep typing this. LOL
Our couch is pretty deep and I lay with my back against the back of it, and cradle Maddie so she has her head on my arm and is tucked next to me. She is near the edge of the couch, but there is still quite a bit of space there. If your couch is not very deep maybe there is a chair or something of similar height that you can pull over next to it to give you more space. Also, if you have a recliner that would probably work well. Put your back to one side and cradle the baby next to you. I'm sure you'll figure out something that works!
I threw my back out on Monday, and today is the first day I left my bedroom. Still having to sit/lie down most of the day. It's like my body didn't like that I was doing so much after the birth since I felt pretty good that it forced me to rest now. Sucky. Before that I had been out of the house a couple times. Brunch for father's day and to synagogue the day before for a bar mitzvah. And a couple park trips - I was doing pretty well until this week! Oh well... hopefully I'll get better fast and then it will be a whole new challenge tackling the two kids by myself a little more, since I know hubby is itching to get back to the office.
Ya, the recliner or bed is probably better.
I swear this kid only nurses to poop/fart.
My mom came over yesterday while feeling nauseous. She held 2 day old M before telling me that she was unwell. Then she could even play with DD because she felt gross. Well daycare called today to say DD has a bit of a fever and isn't herself. Ugh! So annoyed!
I'd be mad too Heather! I get really annoyed when people knowingly expose my kids to sicknesses let alone a newborn (which I've had happen too - my DD got a head cold when she was 3 weeks from a family member!). Common sense people!
Nursing while laying down had never worked well for me. I seriously leak on wherever I'm laying (generally my bed) almost every time so I just don't do it. I do sink back into my couch and lean back slightly though and that saves my back. I just have to pay attention that I don't get plugged ducts that way which happens occasionally.
I hate people knowingly spreading germs, it is one of my pet peeves! We have been surrounded by sickness (pink eye, tonsillitis, and pneumonia) since baby has been born. But thankfully those people have been thoughtful enough to stay away a few days. I hope the germs stay and everyone stays well!
Hope the kiddos don't get sick! That is never fun!
The joys of the tatas! I know it is uncomfortable..
DS has been waking up in the middle of the night for 2 nights now just crying and throwing a fit. I'm not sure what is going on with him. It only lasts a couple mins and he is back out all on his own but I wish he would let me get some sleep before DS2 gets here! It could be worse. At least I don't have to get out of bed but I obviously still wake up.
