Notes from Week 3.

  • 2 weeks and 5 days: The point of motherhood wherein I figured out how to put on one of those 50-foot-long baby wraps effectively, left the house TWICE wearing the baby, and decided that, under certain conditions, it is actually acceptable for a grown-ass woman to wear slippers as shoes out in the world.
  • That night: Between the hours of 9pm and 9am, my baby demanded to be fed an average of once an hour.  From my body.
  • 2 weeks and 6 days: The point of motherhood wherein I decided that shirts are, at best, optional.

I also have a Baby Bjorn, which is approved for newborns 8 lb and up, but Ruby (just under 8lb) seems a little small in it to me. The wrap is pretty complicated, but once you figure it out it works beautifully. Here’s a video — I’ve used both “tummy to tummy” and “cradle hold” with her:
