A simple and accurate explanation of my FAVORITE week of the entire year.
Such a spiritually intense week! Prayers for my husband who will be receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist!
Make no mistake, it needs to be the Bébé au Lait brand though.
What it is: A large piece of fabric that hangs around mommy’s neck to hide herself and the baby while she’s breastfeeding.
Uses: There’s a built-in plastic liner that arcs outward so that while Mommy is wearing it, she may peek down and see how baby is doing. This makes it SO much easier than a plain, floppy blanket.
I’ve also used mine to provide extra shade over the stroller, car windows, as a changing pad, a blanket, and it can be worn as a cape. Super Mom for sureeee.
It’s also nice to use as an Escape Mechanism: You’re in public, or at a family function with someone who keeps coughing but insists they’re perfectly healthy and MUST hold the baby. Announce that it’s time to feed your baby, place him under your Bébé au Lait, and who will ever know he’s finished eating (or never ate in the first place) and just sleeping under there while you avoid germy relatives (okay let’s be honest: pushy and overbearing people is what I really mean. SERIOUSLY, a woman I have never spoken to asked if she could hold “the baby” and I wanted to say UHNO! but la politesse took over and i was able to come up with an excuse) Triumph!
Today when I opened his bedroom door and peeked inside to see if he was up from his nap, my little tooter was laying down, one foot in the air, sippy cup cuddled next to his cheek. He slowly looked at me, peeking through the crack of the door and said, “are you doing?”
What are you doing, he says. WHAT ARE YOU DOING USING SENTENCES AND ASKING ME WHAT IM DOING!? Says I.
