Another sleepless night. Lots of spitting up. Weird sounds that Jackson makes and I don’t know what they mean yet. Marathon nursing sessions continue. Enough said!
Side note: I have been religiously applying lanolin to my nipples and am already noticing a great improvement.
It was after 1 p.m. and Jesse, Jackson, and I were all starving. We swung by the Jack in the Box drive through and headed home. Jackson was screaming bloody murder by the time we got home so I fed him and he passed out for four hours. I haven’t mastered breastfeeding with one hand yet so I am too clumsy to eat, read, or do much of anything else besides feed my child. I am getting used to soggy cereal and cold food.
It was nice not to have company today. It was the first day of just the three of us hanging out. We still don’t have a routine, but we are managing fine. I don’t mind the daytime but I am beginning to question how I will do this on my own in a few weeks when Jesse returns to work. I am in total awe of single mothers. No way could I do that.Time for dinner and bed.
