Now that Buck is one month old (how did that go so fast?!), it’s been fun to go back and compare Peanut and Buck’s first months and see the difference so far in their personalities and dispositions.
Although so far Buck has been a better sleeper, and much less puke-y (Peanut had acid reflux), the biggest difference for me has been nursing. Peanut had a hard time latching from day one, and since he was a slow nurser, it always took about an hour from start to finish. All in all, it wasn’t a bad experience, but wasn’t an incredibly pleasant one. So after four or five months I ended up pumping and feeding him with a bottle almost exclusively until he was a year.
But Buck? He’s a perfect latcher, and a very quick eater, not to mention super snuggly, so nursing him is a total dream.
And what makes nursing even more enjoyable? A pretty nursing cover.
Although I don’t use a cover at home very often, it’s been so nice having one during this move as we’ve had movers, been eating out, and having family around.
This one from Pretty Well Covered is perfect because it’s lightweight, takes up almost no room in my purse, and, of course, is pretty. Oh, and I’ve done a couple of tests and it appears that unless you’re sitting an inch away, you really can’t see through the sheer fabric because of the stripes. Because Buck is such a good nurser, I plan to use this a lot over the next year since I’m suddenly not stressed about nursing in public. Hallelujah.
