Doing so much better! 🙌🙌🙌 . You all are the best. Thanks for all the sympathy and tips - a loving community should be a part of every new mama's #selfcare arsenal.
So...I have mastitis. 😣 (A nursing complication that feels like the flu, and in this case, was likely caused by a painful plugged duct.) . I read in one source that it's the body's way of telling you to slow down. . Treatment includes lots of rest, which I didn't fully understand until I read: Don't stand if you can sit, don't sit if you can lay down, and don't stay awake if you can sleep. . OK then! . Funny how something as simple-sounding as resting can be made clearer with instruction. . Sending love from my bed and this spit-up stained pillow! Rest well today! . .
The anniversary couple swung by before their dinner out! Happy 39th, Mom and Dad. 💕
This AMAZING-tasting zucchini bread from @sariggio was... . ✔️ the last thing I ate before going into labor ✔️ the first thing I ate when we came home from the hospital ✔️ and has made a great so-freaking-hungry-right-now nursing snack. . So #thankful for friends who make it easier to take care of myself. 🍞👩❤️👩 . Do you know someone who might need to prioritize #selfcare this week? . .
