Nursing a baby is one of the most rewarding things in life. But I'm not going to lie, it has its challenges! However, St. Mary's has a support system for new moms. Every Monday, they have a mommy group called Bundles of Joy. At this group, you can weigh your baby before and after a feeding to find out how much he or she is eating, get advice from the lactation consultant, and meet with other moms with babies close in age to your baby. There is also a group that meets on Fridays for new moms with babies and toddlers. Landon and I went just about every Monday (and Friday) until I went back to work in August. At this group, we connected with several other wonderful mothers and their precious babies. Each week we would eat lunch somewhere nearby and then all walk to Bundles of Joy. I will always look back on those Mondays as a special time to talk, laugh, and share our experiences as new moms. Here are some pictures of our sweet babies when they were teeny tiny!
