After doing this for 3 strait days, I am exhausted!! I know....I am sitting down all day, why should I be tired? It is crazy, If I am not feeding her, she is screaming....and acts like she hasn't eaten all day. I am assured by my lactation consultant this is totally normal, and I should keep at this schedule. Bailey is simply going through a growth spurt. However.....where on earth is she putting all this food?
The past two days I have tried various methods of entertaining her while we take a break from eating. Yesterday was horrible, lots of crying from her and even more crying from me!! But today.......while getting ready for my date (which was done in 15 minute intervals beginning at 10 am this morning), I found the winning combination. Styx + Zumba = Loads of Laughter!!
My daughter has a strange fondness for Styx's "Come Sail Away," Zumba, and the craziness the combination creates!! This has allowed for happy baby, mommy and home!!! :) I encourage you to try it....and try not to laugh!!!
