Almost a whole week back at work. I already feel overwhelmed and like I have too much to do. I will get it done. I know myself and this time I will ask for the help I need.
Honeybear seems to be loving daycare and I am happier. He is always smiling when I drop him off and when I fetch him. So far the expressing and breastfeeding is working. Just barely. I do not have a reliable private place to express. The pump is noisy and really just works better with mains electricity than the batteries. The toilets don’t have electrical points and I work in an open office. I am not sure what to do. I really want to breastfeed until at least six months.
Hubby and I have put our schedule into motion and it does work to be organised, however, we both still need more sleep. I am draging myself through the evenings because I am so tired by 5 ‘o clock. I think I need time to adjust to the working Mom routine. We will make it work and Honeybear will eventually sleep for longer stretches.
When do you start baby on solids? I know yu start cereal and very little to begin with. Honeybear has decent neck control and the beginnings of a tooth. He is double his birth weight now. I am afraid to start too soon. Any advice? I know what you read in books and the internet is not always what is acceptable o your baby.
BAck to work for me….have to scout a place to pump 😦
