I have not been getting on this blog as often as I used to and I can't really explain why, maybe my full time job plus my side job with StellDot.com/NikolAtoZ or also being a full time mama and just enjoying the time with Claire but I have missed it, I love documenting what has been going on in our lives so here I am just with a little update. Being a mom has been a ride and I know this is barely the beginning.
If you know me at all then you know we are still going strong! I am so proud of what my body has been able to do, the teamwork, and my role in normalizing breastfeeding. Claire still nurses 2 - 3 times a day during the work week and about 6 - 8 times on weekends. I love that this is how she connects with me, takes a minute to calm down and just gets her day started. I do sometimes get touched out and need a second. Finding a way to balance both of our needs can be difficult but we have found a good technique, in case you need one, I let her know that I am going to sing the "ABCs" and once we get to the end we are all done. Its worked wonders, as soon as I start to sing "next time won't you sing with me" she unlatches and moves on. I am so glad that little diddy works ahha sometimes I just need a break and that way we both get what we need.
