Things I never realized, things I did not know

I never realized that sooo many delicious foods are the cheesiest most chocolatey, most spiciest ones ha!
All of which I'm staying away from while Breastfeeding.

I didn't know that all the books I bought to prepare for motherhood did not have the info I really needed. Much of the information/advice I was looking for came from family, RL friends and twitter friends ;)

I didn't know how much I would enjoy Breastfeeding to the point that I feel sad when I think about weaning after 6 months.

I didn't know anything about 'growth spurts' the frequent feedings and the huge extra supply it brings on right after.

I didn't know how quickly babies grow out of their clothes haha!

I didn't know that the baby's force when pooping would send poop dripping out the side of his legs or up his back. Haha!

I didn't know suctioning out the baby's boogies would be such a fun thing to do.

I didn't know how hungry you get while Breastfeeding. I'm hungry all the time! !!

I didn't know that I am awesome at multitasking.

And most of all, I didn't know how much love I could have for my little boy, love that gets even stronger as days go by.

Turning 3 months this weekend!

New mom favorites so far

It's only been a week and I already have some favorite items. My list so far.

1. Love zipper onesies or nightgowns especially for night time changing. Better than a million buttons
2. Mittens for my little one. This little guy has sharp nails. Ha!
3. Ready made formula. I am just getting the hang of breast feeding and it's going well now. But having the ready made formula helps as back up or top up. My lactation nurse advised that topping up with formula after baby breast feeds is ok as my supply still needs to come in. (personal choice)
4. Bouncy. Baby loves sleeping in it.
5. Bassinet for night time sleeping
6. Dr brown bottles

Right now our schedule is Eat, sleep, change diaper, cuddle and repeat ha!
