My Life Revolves Around My Breasts

It's true.

Sleeping. Shopping. Eating. Blogging. Everything. We have to time every activity we do according to Christian's feeding schedule.
We have to time our meals just right so that Christian has just eaten by the time it is done. Yesterday, we went to visit Richard's grandfather. We couldn't leave until Christian ate because it's an 1.5 hour drive and I didn't want to breast feed in the car with my mother-in-law on the side of the road or in a gas station bathroom. It was bad enough I had to feed him in the small camper bedroom.
My breasts have never felt so important, so loved.
I know I could pump and bottle feed him, but I'm not ready to do that yet. I want to wait at least two weeks before I give him a bottle. Breastfeeding is tough business and I don't want a bottle to jeopardize the progress we've made.
Soon, he will only need to eat every four hours. Then I will be a little more free. Although I enjoy every second with Christian, running errands can be difficult with only a small window of time. And I don't want to leave Richard with a screaming, hungry baby that he can't feed.

First sign of a mommy blog: poop.

Second sign of a mommy blog: breasts.

I'd say you are a mommy blogger.

Where are the pictures of you holding baby?! Gotta get some of those on here too. Hope you are doing well, recovering and enjoying these first days with that little miracle of yours!
