really, sylvie? that's all it takes for you to sleep more, nurse better, and stop fussing? my old white noise machine? REALLY?
this white noise machine deserves a medal of honor for its tour of duty. when i lived in baltimore it drowned out the drunk college kids, the adolescent dirt bike gangs, and the occasional gun shot or two. now it calms my colicky baby. talk about range!
this morning sylvie nursed for twenty minutes without grunting and pushing me away. she hasn't nursed this well in almost a week. travis turned the white noise machine off for a second during this nursing session. she immediately began to fuss, grunt, and push my breast away. he turned it back on and she calmed down and ate normally. i guess we'll be listening to a rain storm for a little while around here.
in addition to this gift from god (or bed bath and beyond), we also purchased a maya wrap ring sling yesterday. she LOVES this carrier. she slept in it for almost two hours yesterday while i used both of my hands (what a novelty!) to do some dishes and make myself dinner. i can't wait to take her for a walk in it! the maya wrap brings her carrier total up to THREE. she is still a little small and lacks the head control for the baby bjorn. i've tried to use the moby wrap several times, but i can never seem to get it right. it doesn't feel tight enough or something. any advice on that? for now this sling seems to be what works. plus, look at all of those colors!
she loves the tummy to tummy position it in. i love the nursing position and that it doubles as a nursing cover. i sense many walks around the park in our immediate future.
