Microblog Monday: first week of motherhood

Some random thoughts after my first week as a mother:

  • Many baby items are reminiscent of horror movies (eg. The creepy lullabies of the wind-up mobile, the night-vision mode of the baby monitor, etc.)
  • I haven't figured out yet how to simultaneously hold the breast pump nipple guards to my breasts and turn on/off the pump at the same time. So far, this has resulted in one dropped and spilled bag.
  • Babies have the best smell and the softest skin. I knew this before, but I am constantly amazed by it. 
  • I am also amazed at how my body has been changing shape daily, slowly beginning to resemble what I remember as normal.
  • Women's sanitary pads have come a long way since I last used them as a teenager.
  • Even more than any aspect of Beuhla herself, so far my favorite part of motherhood has been watching C be a fantastic, loving father.

  1. Congratulations! It's such a miraculous time. Sorry for commenting on the most mundane aspect of your post, but I wanted to pass along a suggestion for hands-free pumping: When my baby was born 12 months ago, I thought it was too much of a pain to use the hands-free bra, but it has been a game-changer. Best of luck!
