For the first time in a month.
I thought my life of watching TV, knitting, and reading blogs would integrate easily with a baby. It's not like I'm some big-shot career woman, right? I could still do my hobbies while she naps.
It's proving far harder to do that than I ever imagined.
She's developed a bit of a projectile vomiting issue. The cure is to be upright all the time. That is not conducive to setting her down.
I am currently typing with her over my shoulder. I have learned to do many things one-handed.
It's a lot of work. A LOT. I am in awe of the mothers who've gone before me.
But I read a blog today. Maybe I can learn to squeeze my old life in between my new life at times.

yes, it's different. Yes, it's taking some adjustment......but don't you just LOVE IT!!!!
Eventually you'll get into a new rythm. Then she'll become mobile and it will change again. You'll learn to roll with the punches and adapt quickly. And smell her fuzzy, sweet little head! Isn't she heavenly?

And I hadn't read The Corner at all today and I guess there is some ta-ta brouhaha. Jeez.
I hope you get in a groove that works (or at least feel acceptance for the non-groove if that is the case). And most especially I hope her tummy settles down and that stops. It is no fun getting yakked on and it is even worse getting used to smelling like eau de spit up.

As for learning to use a laptop one-handed, congrats, you've mastered the same skill as every pubescent teen boy since al gore invented the internets.
Finally, if you only have time in your day to read one blog, I fully expect you will make it mine. I will forgive this transgression, this time, as I attribute it to being baby crazy until your hormones can re-stabilize; pray you do not make this mistake again.
But trust me on the zantac.

Since I assume you wash your boobs, try to turn down the pressure in the system. It may help to bleed off tap pressure prior to pouring.
Just a thought. And no, It doesn't make sense.

That's just one factor, though. Reflux from some digestive disagreement and/or being overfull can cause the same issues. There are numerous other reasons.
Invest in burp cloths and bibs. Receiving blankets make really great large burp cloths for spit-uppy babies. Good luck! You'll see this through!
