Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

I said I didn't want this...

but we have turned into cosleepers.... (note the picture below was just a nap time with daddy {I caught them BOTH snoring...} normally baby is head up so he is far away from the blanket and the boppy keeps mommy from fearing her or daddy will roll over onto him)
I had the pack n' play next to my side of the bed, with the bassinet feature, and he slept there for 1 1/2 nights. He woke up every hour and wasn't a very happy baby. So by the middle of night 2 Kris said "just put him in our bed so we can get some sleep hunny, you need to rest, you just had surgery!". Being the good wifey I am I obeyed and every night since he is in our bed. I usually finish feeding around 1130-12am and then we sleep until about 3:30 up to as late one night at 4:45 before he needs another shot at the boob and a diaper change. Then we sleep until about 6-7am. He's a good sleeper in our bed! Of course my poor boobs hate this arrangement. Being so close to little man and not wearing a bra the last 2 nights have meant waking up literally SOAKING in milk. I mean to tell you, you all will say "oh yes, the leaking..." but good lord, when your boobs are beyond a size E let me tell you the amount of milk is out of control. I can pump 3oz each breast already if that gives you a clue on my abundant supply. My poor husband finds waking up in a puddle to be disgusting, I think it's funny when woke up with his hand on me. I have to deal with it, he should too! Anyway, I didn't think I wanted to cosleep, but it's been worth it for my sanity! I told Kris we must reevaluate this situation by 3 months and get the kid into his crib.

We coslept I think until Audra was 4+ months old - she went to the crib just fine - so don't worry too much about it momma. :)

Wish I had it as good to be "soaked" my poor boys starved! I was lucky to pump 2 oz on BOTH every 3 hours *sigh* For something so natural is sure was a pain! So tell that little man to eat up! He is so adorable!

I'm 5.5 months in and still not sleeping bra-less... waking up soaking is only humorous for so long;) I usually wear either a nursing tank or a camisole with a built in bra. I'm only a B/C, but if Jackson doesn't wake during the night to feed I pump approx. 18 oz in the morning... so yes, I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!
