new baby balance
« on: October 28, 2013, 06:31:31 PM »
So 3 bears welcomed a little cub to our home recently. I did quite well for 2/3rds of my pregnancy, then I can say I ate things I don't normally.

Cub is now 3 months and I am attempting to build good habits again but Im struggling a little with juggling mummy duties, housework, home business and being just...well organised when it comes to food.

I tend to shop every 3 days or so because the men in the house like to eat ALL the food at once...its crazy. I probably need to buy more food but I worry it won't last long  ???  For example I bought a whole cooked chicken for snacking on and hubby got home from work famished and ate the entire thing  :o

Am wondering what do other paleo mummas do to keep things simple, fresh and well stocked. Help a sleep deprived mummas out here ;)

Also still embracing the idea that Im not going to loose this bubba fat anytime soon, while I am happy breastfeeding and glad its all going well....the saggy tummy is kinda depressing. I did squats through pregnancy and modified burpies....pretty much stopped after having bubba but am wanting to get back into it. I heard going to hard too fast releases toxins into breastmilk....thoughts?

thanks in advance for any advice....so glad this forum is here :)

Is it skin or actual fat that's sagging?  Without plastic surgery women with washboard abs just won't have that same "bangin" belly afterwards.  You'd need the skin removed in most cases.

Also, take it easy on yourself.  You're doing a lot, make sure the husband is helping at least some.  I know baby is best paired with mom most of the day (and by day i mean 24 HOURS) but try to encourage him to help.

thanks for replying Eric.

There is definately skin and fat sagging, but I can't seem to feel my abdominal muscles...maybe its too early. Its very squishy and soft....not expecting a washboard stomach I've never  really had one but I definately had firm strong stomach muscles there before I was pregnant.

Hubby is wonderful and takes bub regularly, I could just be too hard on myself trying to be supermum so early. Thanks for the remind to go gentle with myself. much appreciated :)

Let me know if you need any help/have questions.  I don't know everything myself but my wife is a damn near expert on babywearing, breastfeeding, and all things related!
