Any Mamas out there who nurse their littles? I don’t know about you, but I have spent hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours sitting on the couch nursing. While I love the time with my son, it can get a little boring sitting there with nothing to do. So…..what are some of the things you can do while nursing?
- Watch movies. Some of the ones I’ve enjoyed on Hulu are The Biggest Loser, Once Upon a Time, White Collar, and MasterChef Junior. And on Netflix…Say Yes to the Dress, My Fair Wedding, The Next Great Baker, and Merlin. (Typically I watch more TV shows than movies while nursing…but there are movie options obviously on Netflix as well.) But of course, there are only so many Hulu and Netflix shows you can watch before you go bonkers, so you could also….
- Read. Read a book you’ve been meaning to check off your list. Read (or listen to) the Bible.
- Listen to sermons online.
- Memorize Scripture
- Rest. Or better yet, sleep, if you can.
What do you do while nursing?
When I was nursing Sunshine, I read The Idiot by Dostoevsky. I did a lot of reading. I also tend to check FB or Twitter while I’m nursing – I can hold her with one hand and run the mouse with the other hand. 🙂 We’re big fans of Once Upon a Time too.
