If you’ve been around these parts for very long, you know that I struggle to post good Lazy Mom Baby Tips. I don’t intentionally not post baby tips… it’s just I don’t have babies anymore!
So today, I thought I’d share with you a baby tip sent in by lazy mom Laura and then beg you all to send me good Lazy Mom Baby Tips of your own!!!!
Here’s Laura’s tip…
We adopted both of our girls, so they were always on the bottle. We also had them on a regular schedule pretty quickly. At night, we would put a little chalkboard on their changing table. They both woke up every 3 hours to begin with. If I got up with them the first time, I would write down how much formula they took, and if I changed them. If they were sick or gassy, I would write down what meds I gave them. My husband would then take the second shift. (God bless him!) He would see what I wrote, and know what to do. They were never over-medicated, and if I hadn’t changed them for some reason, he would know it was IMPERATIVE to do so that shift. This way… and this is important… we each got 4-6 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. It was the smartest thing these sleep deprived new parents did for each other!
