is it a BAD sign that we don't have ANY burp cloths yet?
I swear I registered for them...
but I guess people aren't into purchasing burp cloths as baby shower gifts,
especially when there are cute onesies and soft baby blankets to choose from.
We still have so much to buy before our little bundle of joy comes along!
These are cute though.
Except, part of me isn't as concerned about baby proofing right away - it's not like our newborn baby will be crawling and getting into things as soon as we get home from the hospital. What's at the forefront of my brain these days is...well...feeding her.
Breast feeding sounds tricky - not easy - and yet I really really want to do it. I've heard from so many that it is a difficult commitment from working moms...as there aren't always "places" or "times" to sneak away and pump milk - especially in residency. BUT - I want to give it my very best effort. So...I need a breast pump. Did you know that they can be wicked pricey?
I've been scoping them on CSN.com - it's where we bought the bulk of our baby stuff - the crib, the stroller, the crib mattress, the high chair...you know...the "stuff" (I'm a sucker for free shipping...and in our small town it's tough to get the products we want locally!) I'm thinking we will go with a Medela breast pump - that brand has the best ratings everywhere I look. I just wonder if I should invest in it THIS MINUTE so when we go to the hospital I already have it in my bag of mama tricks - or if I should wait to see how breast feeding will work for me? Ahhh - I wish I knew all the answers.
Do you have any answers? Did you pump? What did you use? Recommend buying one right away - or do I have a little time to figure this stuff out???
