Things you can't do...

While holding a newborn...

Eat cereal with milk...come on kid, don't freak out on me, momma needs her cinnamon toast crunch!

Anybody else have to deal with a crying baby while trying to enjoy something they can't be held during?

  • Babies have some sort of radar that goes off when it's time for us to eat. If you don't have one, I would recommed getting some sort of baby carrier. That way baby is held and your hands are free.

  • I eat with my LO in the carrier all the time. He sometimes gets some crumbs on his head, but he's happy and I'm nourished. I have not mastered emptying the dishwasher holding the baby or with him in the carrier...darn.

    It never fails - every morning as soon as I sit down to breakfast, DD wants to eat.  I stopped eating oatmeal and cereal and started eating muffins and other breakfast foods that won't get soggy or disgusting after a 20-minute interruption.

    A-freakin-men.  It never fails - no matter what time we sit down to dinner, he decides he also needs dinner or at least an extended snuggle session with mom :-p

  • Agree with all PP!  Last night I tried eating leftover mashed potatoes and gravy thinking I could handle that one handed since LO had just woken up.  Nope.  Mashed potatoes on the floor and on my shirt and on the chair!

     Yup! It's the only way I ever get to eat  lunch! And I can empty the dishwasher and do laundry, just takes a lot longer. Can't describe hoe much I love my baby ktan.

     I do find I often have her in the middle of a great nap in the carrier and then I need to pee!

    Haha, seriously!  It doesn't matter if she's been sleeping 10 minutes or an hour, she loves to wake up when I sit down to eat.

  • I attempted to switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer this morning. Hilarious.
  • Yep. I agree. I will add pumping to that list too. I swear my LO knows exactly when I'm pumping BC she decides to wake to every time.

  • My baby is a piglet so I think she knows how important food is and will sometimes nap or be peaceful while I eat. I wear her a good bit of the day to do small things around the house.

    I haven't yet tried walking the dog while wearing her. Flower gets a little too excited over squirrels and that would make me nervous if I was distracted by the baby.
