This week has been a struggle. Vienna is teething, has a tummy virus and got her four month vaccines. She hasn't slept more than 2 hour stretches and just wants to be on the boob ALL DAY LONG. Here's how I've gotten through it..
one | Nipple balm. I use Honest Company's nipple balm during the day time when Vienna nurses more often. At night I use Lanolin because it provides more coverage and Vienna nurses less often. Lanolin has a few ingredients that I don't absolutly love hence using when Vienna nurses less often.
two | Minted Lane's Clair Necklace in Mint and White. Vienna loves putting everything in her mouth right now. This necklace is AMAZING! It can be dressed up or dressed down. I can actually wear jewelry which is non existent these days. My favorite is grocery shopping, putting Vienna in the ergo and wearing my teething necklace! It distracts Vienna and I'm able to get all of my shopping done! Woop! SPECAIL BONUS: Now through Sunday use code TWW20 to get 20% off of your order with Minted Lane!
three | Wine. I try to keep my alcohol consumption limited, not only because I exclusively breastfeed, but also its just empty calories.. BUT after having a screaming child for three days strait, no sleep, and nipples that no longer look like nipples, I give. I don't second guess or question it, I just give myself a 30 minute break, a glass of wine and NO expectations. Your welcome mom.
