There’s no such a time anymore.
When he goes to sleep, I do a pump. Hands-free bustier is the best thing ever if you’re doing a double pump. I didn’t have one for a very long time and had to hold both parts as I pump. I now have some kind of RSI or tendinitis on my right hand.
After I’ve done a session, I’d hang out the washing if I’d put a wash on in the morning. Or I’d wash and sterilise the bottles.
As he usually sleeps in the living room where it’s warm (we only have one heater), I can’t turn the vacuum cleaner on. BUT I bought of of those nifty damp and dry mops. It has an electrostatic pad for picking up dirt, dust and hair. Great for a quick QUIET clean while he’s sleeping. The other is a microfibre pad is for mopping. I’d either use it or I have disposable floor wipes for a quick clean.
When we’re all home on the weekend, one of us can look after him in one room, while the other do the vacuuming in the other room. It’s a coordinated mission. Haha
So, I’ve been missing lunches. But I’ve come up with a way so I still eat my lunch and get most things done. I make a sandwich the night before and pack away in the fridge. When I sit down to do a pump, I have my lunch at the same time. Good huh! 🙂
So no more gorging myself with food when my partner gets home from work.
