Next is the Moby wrap. This allows me to use BOTH my hands to do things around the house. This morning I actually made the bed, put the dishes away, and dried my hair! Eli refused to sleep all night long, and this morning, despite him yawning every 5 minutes, he would not close his eyes to sleep. As soon as I cuddled him in this wrap, his eyes were closed and he was out like a light!
My Medela pump! My co-workers were super generous and gave me this at my work shower, and I wasn't sure if I would really end up using it or not. Turns out, I definitely needed it. I used one in the hospital until my milk came in, and now I am starting to use one to save milk to freeze. This will definitely help daddy feed Eli too, and give mommy and break every now and then. For now though, until month 1 is up, no bottles or pacifiers for my sweet boy...we don't want him confused until he fully gets the hanging of this whole nursing thing.
I've just realized that almost all of my favorite items have to do with making breastfeeding easier. Once we get the hang of this, maybe I will add some more must-haves to my list. For those of you who are pregnant, go get all of these things!!
