Things you think about whilst night-time feeding babies

  • Should I have made different comment to a school mum?
  • I wonder if there is some sort of mathematical formula which gives you quantity of poo resultant of numbers of feeds according to developmental age/ weight
  • I hope this noise doesn’t wake the other kids
  • I hope this noise wakes that husband up as he seems to sleep through anything
  • Why am I wet?
  • Shall I just go and start doing chores as soon as this baby goes to sleep
  • Why does this baby only ever sleep during daylight or with his head resting at a really uncomfortable angle on me?
  • I hope the boy isn’t going to be bullied again
  • I hope Fifi and Ned don’t get bullied
  • What shall I wear tomorrow
  • I wish it was light enough to read my book
  • What shall I give the kids for breakfast
  • I must buy some more leggings
  • I wish I had bought those curtains I saw in the John Lewis sale
  • Shall I have another baby
  • Do I want a career?
  • Shall we convert the garage to a playroom
  • Do I need a haircut?

Not a lot of sleep happening at the moment…

    This is why I was thankful for a smartphone and Twitter whilst nightfeeding my youngest, a welcome distraction from the noises in my own head :)! First time around I spent hours sat thinking over things, making lists, looking at that spot on the carpet you really should get the stain remover on…

    I browse twitter one handed when I night feed. Although having sorted out media sharing to my smartphone, last night I was actually watching subtitled father ted at 4am whilst giving him a feed.

    I seem to recall becoming quite good at scrabble on my iPhone when I was feeding LMC in the middle of the night. She would take hours and after a while even Twitter didn&#39;t seem to have anything left for me to read!

    Great article – reminded me of the reminders I used to set in my phone when breast feeding at night
