Emmett and I had a pretty good night last night and if he wanted to stick to that schedule when I returned to work, I’d love it! He woke up at midnight (after going to bed around 8), I fed him and he went back down until 6 when my husband got up. That is literally the perfect baby schedule! I’d be getting plenty of sleep and be able to take a shower before he woke up to eat at 6. Anyone know of any ways to give subliminal messaging to an infant?? Anyone? No? Oh well!
After not leaving the house yesterday, except to pick up a package off the porch, I desperately needed to get out and do something. I’ve been itching to get to Barnes & Nobles to pick up a couple childcare books that I’ve gotten recommendations for.
The first is titled Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby. I found this book while reading one of my favorite blogs, Healthy Tipping Point. This link will take you directly to the post where she discusses her opinions on the book.
I haven’t yet read the book, I mean, c’mon, I did ONLY just pick it up today…give me a break! 😉 I’m hoping to start it tonight, I’ll let you know what I think of it and whether we used any of the author’s advice with Emmett, once I’m finished.
The second book I wanted to get I found while reading another one of my favorite “mom” blogs, The Art of Making a Baby, and seriously if you don’t follow this blog already, I HIGHLY recommend it. She has phenomenal photos and her writing is just so fun and informative. Anywho, back to the book, it’s titled Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods – and Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater. You can read what Elena had to say about the book here, unfortunately B&N didn’t have this one in store, so I’ll either download it on my Nook or I’ll buy it from Amazon. Again, once I’ve finished reading it, I’ll share my opinions on it.
Once we were done at Barnes & Nobles, I ran to the Care Connection to get breast milk storage bags. I have gone through about 100 already and once I return to work, I’ll be going through even more.
Here’s another recommendation for you…if you live in the Buffalo area and are planning on breastfeeding, go to this store! It is a small specialty store focusing on the breastfeeding mother. They carry anything you might need to be successful with breastfeeding and have lactation consultants on staff that are willing to help you through any of the bumps you need to work through.
The rest of the evening was spent talking with Seamus and playing with Emmett, it turned out to be a great day!
He was being very serious (and of course adorable) after his bath this evening. Goodness, I love him!
How was your day??
