10 Things I Really Do While Nursing

Before she fought back while eating!

I remember a time in the distant past when Addison would just lay down, relax, and nurse… No punching, hitting, nose honking, scratching, sticking her hands in my mouth, pulling my hair… just simple relaxing mommy and her time.

Well, until mommy got painfully bored and started other projects like writing blog posts, playing angry birds, or enjoying a cup of coffee.

You know I am not the only one out there! I have bad ADD so if I am not doing something, even while she was nursing… I would start to go crazy. I can’t be the only one right?

I was talking to a friend the other day, and she confessed her list of things she enjoys during her nursing time, because she looks at it as quiet time.  Ahhh! So I am not the only one out there guilty of the crime of multitasking!

I want to know moms! What else do you do while you are nursing, because I am actually prepared for some pretty hysterical answers, because I know my list,  which I actually limited to 10, is pretty funny!

    If you are familiar with cloth diapering at all, you know stuffing diapers is just part of the process... I would rather pre-stuff them then do it every diaper change!

    Play Words with Friends
    I need to keep my brain functioning somehow other than blogging. Seriously though, I feel like nursing kills my brain cells!

    If she gets to eat... I should be able to also! I can't tell you how many times I sneak in a snack while nursing, only about half the time Addie doesn't end up with some kind of crumbs on her!
