People keep asking me if my baby sleeps through the night.
Apparently people don’t know that newborn babies have to eat every few hours, essentially making this “sleep through the night” thing all but impossible. lol.
Some times I just want to sit on the couch and hold her on my chest and watch her dreamy little smiles flutter across her face. I know this stage won’t last forever and I want to take advantage of it.
I haven’t been grocery shopping since before Ginny was born. Partially because I don’t feel like cooking, so buying food is a bit depressing because really I just want to buy the big box of hot pockets and then go back to snuggling my baby.
This overwhelming desire to snuggle can also explain why I haven’t blogged much. lol. I’ll figure this out soon enough.
Breastfeeding is one of the most emotionally challenging things I have ever done. I’ve read about how some Mom’s find breasfeeding enjoyable, and they feel super connected to their baby and knowing how dependent the baby is makes them love the baby even more.
While I want to breastfeed because I know that there are a lot of advantages to it, I find it very emotionally and physically taxing. Ginny is kind of a slow eater so I spend a lot of time just sitting waiting for her to eat enough. I can’t do very much with just one hand. It also makes socializing awkward. I end up sitting in a room by myself a lot while company, or people we visit, are in some other room. I don’t really have a problem with having people around me when I feed her, but I think other people find it awkward.
Any who, I’m going to write more indepth about my BFign experience thus far, but not right now. Right now I am going to remove my sleeping baby from me, and then go make some dinner.
I haven’t read blogs in like… a week… so leave me a message if anything big/important has happened! I feel so out of the loop and disconnected from every one! 🙁
