A day off from diapers

My husband did the most amazing thing for me this weekend – he gave me Saturday off.  That’s right, After the first morning feeding until we put him down for the night, I didn’t change a single diaper.  And it was wonderful.

It’s amazing just how nice it was to only have to breastfeed the small one – to skip the fussying and crying that inevitably comes with diapering (and the inevitable outfit change, and getting peed on).  By the time the first middle of the night feeding came around and subsequently my first diaper change in 18 hours, I was refreshed and ready for it.  And even though it was only one day, and I still did everything else I normally do for the child, it was one of the most effective vacations I’ve ever taken.   To all you new moms out there, I highly recommend this.  Thanks, husband!
