Let's talk about sleep, baby...

What a great song, am I right? No?
I started this post a month ago, when my mom, pediatrician, and others were "shocked" that my breastfed 4 month old was still waking at night to eat (1-2 times). As a new mom whose support system is mostly made up of "old school" moms and discussion boards on the internet (How did they do it when there were no smartphones!?), I thought I had spoiled my baby beyond repair. As a high school teacher, you can easily picture past students who were "spoiled" and it was terrifying to think of my 4 month old grow into one of these 16 year old pains (which, I'm sure to some extent, they all do eventually).

Fit of different brands of baby clothes

I was so blessed to have not just one, but 4 baby showers before my son was born. My family, my husband's family, and both of our coworkers thought it was very necessary to eat cake and play games in celebration of our little guy. Needless to say, this led to us being inundated with baby clothes. To date, we have not bought our 3.5 month old any clothing. Like I said, we are very blessed with many friends and family who love us!

Breastfeeding: Oversupply & the FDBF method

So, my little guy is turning 2 months old on Tuesday. I am so relieved that he and I have both figured out the breastfeeding now. He hardly ever comes off screaming when the letdown happens, and it really doesn't hurt anymore.

Intro Post

Hi! I'm Jess, a new mom to a 2 month old.
I started this blog, because I realized there were a few things about being a mom that took me too long to find on the internet, so I thought maybe I could collate them all in one place. Also, I have a friend about to have a baby in October and I think I inundated her with information when she asked if I had any advice.
