Well, on Thursday my husband will be heading back to work. I’ve talked him into only working half days on Thursday and Friday. It will be a good mini test run for me and the little lady. If it turns out I start to lose my mind, my in-laws are on standby to come and rescue me. It’s nice to know that they are on summer break for the next month, just in case.
He has been leaving me for short periods of time so I can try things out. He is at the grocery store and picking up lunch right now. I fed her, rocked her, and put her down in her pack and play. I must say that I am AMAZED that she is actually sleeping in her pack and play right now. Why do I have a feeling that she won’t be this easy as soon as the hubby is back to work? Maybe she is just lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of Doctor Who? 😉
Other than the cluster feedings that still spring up here and there, she has been feeding pretty regularly. The night before last she pretty much fed from 8pm to 3am. Holy cow, I’m not sure I’ve ever been that tired. We got through it though! Today I may try pumping for the first time. I’m going to do a little research on how to pump and store the milk, then go from there. I’m planning on feeding her, then pumping out whatever remains after the feeding (doctors recommendation). Since she still has instances of cluster feeding, I will only try pumping once a day, just to make sure that if she does need to cluster feed at night, I’ll be ready for her.
I absolutely love my baby girl.
