Now that Baby G has been here for a whole month (!), we’re finally settling into our routines. We’ve figured out our wake-up routine with two kids, who gets the night shift and who gets the morning shift, how to do one-on-one activities with each girl, how to get Baby G to take a nap… you get the picture.
One thing I was worried about was how nursing would go with our almost-two year old running around. There were times that I nursed Bean for hours on end—but I knew that wasn’t going to fly this time around. Luckily, Baby G is a great nurser and we didn’t have any of the issues we had with Bean when it came to latch and let-down. But it’s still not easy to keep track of Bean or to keep her occupied while I’m feeding her sister… so convenience has become the key.
I just bought three nursing tops made by Momzelle that I absolutely love! The material is so soft and strong, it seems to hold in all of the new lumps and bumps I’ve acquired, and the tops make nursing a cinch. Unlike the nursing tanks with the strap clasps and built-in bras, you can wear your own bra underneath these shirts (I recommend the Le Mystere nursing bras—pretty and functional!), which seems to work better for my new-mom body.
Next challenge: getting Baby G to sleep better at night. Wish us luck!
