    I totally have a nursing throne. With the boys I even had a pumping station but with Judah it’s a little tricky because 2 year old twins are very interested in things like breastpumps and all of their parts. And YES to keeping a log. I think some days, especially in the early days I would wonder just how many hours I had been feeding a baby. It helps to be able to say “Hey, you’ve not had a break for a few hours, let’s take 15 and come back to this.”

    Great tips! It was wonderful during the first week having my mom around to help with cooking and cleaning. That way my husband and I could focus on being parents and my son and I could focus on establish breastfeeding.

    Thanks for linking up with this week’s blog hop!

    Love your tips. I was told over and over to get some rest / take a nap and didn’t do it. I wish I would have because one day it hit me like a ton of bricks. You might like my Baby Timer app post related to your tip about keeping a log. Here is the link to it!

    Stopping by from the BFing Blog Hop, of course! Love these tips. I totally had a nursing throne. Comfy pillows, blanket, etc… Now I’ve graduated to a pump cave, which is the same thing, just bigger and better :)LifeWithLevi

    Thanks for your comments ladies! My throne has moved to the living room… I don’t want to miss anything anymore! :) My glider in the nursery is my go-to when she’s very fussy though.

    Honestly, I wasn’t the best at napping while she napped, but once I stopped trying to lay her down away from me and relaxed with her, it went better for all of us!Syrana

    Thanks for mentioning the growth spurts and the cluster feedings. We are hitting our 6 weeks growth spurt early and whoah momma. Its totally overwhelming, but since this is Bug’s second growth spurt, I know its not going to last forever.mylifewithbug

    The growth spurts and cluster feedings were very overwhelming for me…especially since I didn’t know what to expect! I hope these tips help at least one mama. :)Syrana

    What great tips!!! Reading this actually made me nostalgic for when my son was a teeny newborn and was being exculsively breastfed! We are still nursing at 15 months but it’s somehow not the same! ;-) Thanks for such a great, helpful post!
