Top - Urban; Skirt - Urban; Sandals - Borrowed from mom
Date: Sunday, July 31, 2011
I'm nursing Naja. Nursing adds an entire extra dimension to being a mom. When you do this, you pretty much lock yourself in as the baby's designated provider of food ("experts" suggest you hold off on giving nursing babies a bottle until they are 3-4 weeks). This new designation affects my dressing in a way I wasn't expecting. Basically - I need to have easy access to her food source, and her food source comes in heaps and bounds at times. I translate this to mean I will not be wearing anything that does not easily lift up or unbutton, and all fine materials where milk will generate a stain are also off limits. Nursing pads are my BFFs right now. And I thought I would get my entire wardrobe back because I was no longer expecting...
PS - This is the first post-preggo picture I'm showing on the blog. At ~2 weeks post-delivery, I've lost the bulk of my belly. Now, I just need to lose some inches, and work on tightening things up to get back to my pre-preggo size. I can't wait until the doc gives me the "go" to get back to some intense workouts!!!
PSS - I LOVE exposed zippers!!!
