Beat the clock

That's what my life feels like these days....a race against a ticking clock.

This clock, specifically....

I am constantly trying to cram everything into hour and a half windows.


A hungry, growing, NURSING 2 week old.

Alice feeds every 2 hours during the day...the feedings take about 30 minutes....you time the feedings from the beginning of the feeding and voila....you've got 90 minutes to---

run to publix
grab dinner
play with ella
go to the doctor
zip through target
clean the house

This is the most stressful thing about life with an infant. (I think)

I am not a fan of staying in the house all day...nor am I a fan of nursing in public. So, quick trips out and about is what we're all about for the next um, not sure how long....gotta check on when she starts to space out these feedings more. "What to Expect the First Year" is getting a royal workout lately. :)

Sounds a bit overwhelming, my. Is it easier at all when you aren't nursing?
how long do you nurse for?
Good luck, hopefully that book will help!
