TMI.

I have a few friends (and family!) that are new mommies like myself, and I just e-mailed one with another bit of my off-the-wall-advice. That stuff that NO ONE tells you ahead of time? And that seems crazy even to a crazed new mom? Yea... I'm all about sharing that kind of stuff... because it's stuff you really need to know. Even if it's a little scary.

Like: when your milk doesn't want to wait for the baby (specifically at night)? And the Lansinoh pads aren't cutting it (btw... don't bother with any other ones... Target's brand is a close second, but still not as good)... maxi pads. You might feel funny... it might seem awkward... but it's SO much better than waking up in a puddle. Oh... and get a waterproof cover for your mattress. So much easier to throw that in the wash than try and get stink out of a mattress. (and no, I didn't actually get to use the maxi pads, but the amount of wash I could have saved if I'd thought of it sooner would have been awesome. And oddly, in random conversation the other day... I met someone who did. Go her!)

Told you. TMI.

Possibly TMI, but useful TMI at least!

Washcloths work okay too, or so I have been told.

Well, sorta TMI, but one day when I have a child of my own, I think I'll be grateful to you =)
