This post I read today answered a question that was burning inside me.
What do you do when you’re a parent that needs some alone time every day?
I feel that’s basically what makes me an introvert. I love socializing but ultimately, if I don’t recharge, it’s not going to be pretty. And I still want my kid to be a kid, but I can’t really change the way I am, either.
I’m glad there’s a sustainable answer.
When nursing a baby every day (and night) one quickly develops an aversion or fondness for certain items of clothing.
Sure you need to be comfortable enough to feed your baby anywhere on the fly, but in reality nursing gear can feel a bit mumsy.
Here are some quick fixes.
In Switzerland women are given a $200 allowance as an incentive to breastfeed.
While I was doing just that, I had many hours to daydream about how I would spend that bonus money. Clearly the best investment is always shoes!
I ended up buying the three things I really get the most out of: jeans (J Crew Matchstick jeans in classic rinse), flats (J Crew Janey in patent red) and my second pair of snow boots (vintage Sorels).
They say that these are the “golden times” with baby, and I couldn’t agree more. Anna is a delight; such a good, happy baby we just want to be around her all the time.
Highlights this month: making me the happiest mom on the planet, visiting Basel (and the beer-garden with dad), taking one and only one nap in her crib since she was three weeks old, picnicking around Switzerland with mom and dad.
