Re: What do you do while breastfeeding???

I usually try to snooze while my ds is nursing. He is ten months old but is still up every 2 to 3 hours at night, so this mama is usually pretty tired. Amazingly, I have been able to get recharged while "resting my eyes" during nursing sessions. And we have lullabies from around the world playing in his room, so that is relaxing too.

Re: What do you do while breastfeeding???

Sadly, I pull the computer so I can multitask while that is happening. I also watch TV. I recently complete all the Ugly Betty seasons. Although, I make it a point to be just him and me a couple times a day. There is nothing like looking into his eyes and having his little hand hold me tightly.

Re: What do you do while breastfeeding???

Usually I read, watch TV, or also cuddle my DS1 while nursing DS2. But lately, since we seem to be at the height of toddler gymnurstics, not much of anything gets done other than keeping stinky toddler toes out of my face . Knitting is totally out of the question right now (knitting+gymnurstics=yards of knots). I can barely hold my iPad to read lately without little toes turning pages on me. But I have done all kinds of things while nursing, and nursed in so many different places. Since we co-sleep, there has been nursing (dream feeding) while engaged in 'other' activities .
