Yep…you guessed it…boob. That is how sweet little Bitty Buns and I spend our days. Seeing as she is only 4 weeks old…I wouldn’t expect it any other way. There are things with this little one I have done and will do that I wish I had done with my others. I cherish my time with my kids and watching them grow up at an incredible speed is amazing!
The hubs and I are pretty darn sure that we are done having babies….which is a HUGE bittersweet feeling. I do not want to have another surgery but it makes me a bit sad to think of not having “first” moments after Bitty.
Because of our decision, I am taking in every minute of every day. I am doing things much different than I did with the first two. I want to kick myself in the tail for not starting my crunchy routine earlier.
I LOVE breastfeeding. I love that I can take her out on errands and not have to worry about taking any bottles, formulas, etc with me. I have the two things I need with me all the time. I am REALLY REALLY hoping to nurse until 1 years old or longer. When I get discouraged or feeling the Boob Burnout, Breastfeeding Place is a great blog to read and get re-energized and motivated.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my pocket cloth diapers. I decided to go with Sun Baby Diapers (click name for link). They are reasonable and the prints are adorable. I save money, save my little ones hinny and reduce our carbon footprint on the planet.
I also use cloth wipes and a wipe solution as opposed to disposable wipes. These have worked out awesomely! I bought the Bumkins Flannel Wipes from Amazon and the wipe solution is SUPER easy.
1 cup distilled water
1 TBSP Dr. Bronners Unscented Mild Castille Soap
1 TBSP Sweet Almond Oil
3 Drops Tea Tree Oil
2 Drops Lavender
Mix together and pour over wipes. I roll mine up in an empty wipes container…a tupperware will work as well.
I use and adore Young Living Essential oils for all my oily needs.
As I continue my crunchy mom journey…I will keep you posted.
What do you do that constitutes as “crunchy”?
