Hello! FTM with a 12 day old precious baby boy, and this is my first time on this board.
I have been extremely blessed that after a rocky start, breastfeeding has been so natural and easy. However, I am HORRIBLY impatient. LO likes to cluster feed at night. DH and I have worked out a system where I sleep right after dinner until it's time for his first nightly feeding (usually between 10 and 11:00). This feeding can last for 2-3 hours because he just has to keep going back and forth.
The problem is that I try to keep the lights low and reduce additional stimulation in the hopes that he falls asleep sooner, but then I am SO bored that I just can't wait to get him off my boob in order to either sleep or do something else.
Can anyone provide advice on what to do to pass the time? Or make it more stimulating for me, because he seems happy as can be?
