Maybe it was working full time or perhaps it was the flurry of excitement that accompanied moving into a new home, but my nine month pregnancy flew by. Even now, I still cannot believe I have the pleasure of taking care of this perfect little guy for nearly eleven weeks:

3. Flowy and low-cut tops: The first few weeks, you may feel a bit like the only thing you are doing is feeding your child: especially if you are nursing. You begin to look at your tops in a totally different light. Instead of wondering if a top will look good in an outfit, you start to think, “in about twenty minutes, I’m going to have to feed my child again. Is this practical?” Again, as you are in between sizes as well, you may find flowing tops to be the best choice as you hide your swollen belly (and avoid the snarky guy asking when you’re due). Here are a few:

|Tobi Basics $17|
4. Lanolin and Booby Tubes: This one works only for moms who are nursing. Those first few weeks of getting the hang of breastfeeding are rough. Coupled with the contractions that you’ll feel in the first week or two of feedings, you may feel sore…at the spout. These are two products that you simply CANNOT go without. At one point, I was willing to try ANYTHING just so that one part of my body felt better. The tube of lanolin they give you at the hospital is a joke. Buy your own large bottle of lanolin…you will use it. Booby tubes are something you should put on a registry…for whatever reason, they do the trick of easing the pain of nursing.
