I received another awesome package from WonderBra for my second mission!! This time, I got high cut supportive panties (yup, I can use that right now!:) and a couple of 'full support' bras. I will definitely try these on when baby L and I have a more predictable feeding schedule and I can wear regular bras again! :) As for the panties, I will wait until things have returned to more of a 'normal' state down there, lol
My week 2 mission for WonderBra's Women of Wonder was:
A Mother's Glow
Capture the special moments in life and book a photo shoot for you and your newborn.
I was again very nervous with the mission. I was still not that comfortable with holding baby L, as you can probably tell in the video! :) And for some reason it was really warm in the house - or it could also just be that my body was doing its post-pregnancy thing ;)
Andrea was great, you could tell she was used to working with babies. She knew how to handle the little guy better than I did! She was calm and gentle with him, and very patient - he got fussy because I pretty much messed up his feeding schedule.
If there's one thing I learned this week it's : Feed the baby until he's done! I mean Andrea was ok with waiting, but I was putting pressure on myself with having him photo ready, so I was cutting him off milk after a few minutes thinking that it would be enough to hold him for a while, only to have to feed him again, and again afterwards... babies are on their own schedule and your much better off following their lead :)
My favorite part about this week's mission was when we got to take shots of my husband with the baby. It gave me a chance to step back and enjoy watching my boys hanging out together - so sweet :) It was nice to have the husband participate in that mission since he couldn't make the first one...
I felt relieved after finishing the mission because I got to make sure that baby L was comfy again.
I was also so happy to do this mission and get the chance to have professional shots of our little family while baby L is still so little - they DO grow up SO fast!
Thank you WonderBra! :)
