I posted some snaps today on my way to one of my closest friend’s baby shower and some of you asked about this dress so I thought I would write a quick blog post about it. I’m wearing a medium and it’s perfect for post baby because it’s loose fitting around the tummy!. You can get it HERE.
Wonder how I’m able to go to a baby shower with a 12 day old baby? Well I have the most amazing partner and Kevin came with me. He stayed with Molly in the car while I went into the shower for an hour (she’s not old enough to go inside to public places yet. This was the direction we got from our pediatrician and I trust her opinion so please don’t comment saying “why wouldn’t you bring her inside a public place. She also doesn’t have any of her shots. Not worth the risk. Plus is was my friend’s shower and I was celebrating her baby. Not mine.).
Anyway, by Kevin being there, if she needed to nurse in that hour I was inside, all he had to do was call me and I would come right out to feed her. I don’t pump because most lactation consultants tell you not to until you milk supply is determined by your baby. So to wait until 3-4 weeks).
My point of this post is that having a good partner who is willing to work with you to make the transition into parenthood easier is EVERYTHING! I am so lucky to have Kevin.
BTW- I realize this isn’t a good breastfeeding dress. If you watch my snaps you’ll see me pulling it down to my waist to breastfeed Molly in the car! Ha! While is was parked of course. Mom life 😉
And don’t worry, sweet little Molly was covered up in her car seat for the trip. I just took her out of the car quickly to show her off to a few friends and to take this pic 🙂 Then she went right back in the car and was covered up!
Oh and my car seat is an Orbit for those for you wondering 😉
