A Day in our Life

I figured it would be nice to record what a typical day looks like at home with our newborn son. I am documenting things in his baby book as well. So what does a “normal” day in our life look like? 

  • Get up with daddy about 6 am so he can spend time with baby before he leaves for work (mom usually sleeps through this feed & diaper change bc daddy is so great!) 
  • Get up with mommy about 8 am and get a diaper change. Then nurse as mommy drinks the coffee daddy made for her with the amazing Ninja machine 
  • Go in the mamaRoo for a swing as mommy tries to eat breakfast, tend to the dogs, wash bottles, wash & fold laundry, etc. 
  • Nurse again! Get on my playmat for awhile & play with mommy, do some bicycle kicks & get tummy rubs
  • Naptime (sometimes) while mommy eats lunch, and Nanna visits
  • Outside time enjoying the fresh air on our porch, usually with bottle of formula so boobs get a little break lol
  • Mommy reads books aloud that play music or talk in the nursery
  • Daddy comes home & mommy gets to shower (sometimes even nap since it never happens during the day) and have an adult beverage. Daddy feeds me a bottle. 
  • Tummy time & bath take place! Still hating the sponge baths. 
  • Bedtime-baby boy loves to be swaddled up and wear mittens to sleep after he nurses. 
  • Up every 2 hrs to eat and get changed with mommy 

All of this easily changes depending on baby boys mood. For example, if he is constipated or gassy, add in a few hours of crying as an activity! Even when that happens, I try to do all of the above at some point during our day together. Hoping to add in daily stroller walks now since it has been a month since my c-section and the weather is so nice. What else do you mommies do during the days with your babes?

So blessed to have the opportunity to do all the things I always dreamed of with my miracle!

  1. Sounds pretty typical of our day! Maybe throw in a visit to the shops or a walk when the weather is nice. We shower with him instead of so a bath. He loves the running water.

  2. Mine both hate the sponge bath also! It helped to steam up the bathroom first but even that they weren’t having! I just take a bath with them now and let them float and kick around! They love it AND it helps with gas! I like the idea of showering with them but am nervous about dropping slippery babies! We also need to get out during the day–especially during those crying bits and just drive 2 towns over for coffee. It’s a nice break and usually a nice nap!
