Alice made it! Fine, it was obvious that Alice was going to make it. I was actually the one with the problem. Right after I breastfed her, we installed our tiny little two weeks old baby girl in her big stroller for her very first excursion outside (a quick trip to the community health centre).
So it is with shaking hands that I started to push her rolling habitat for the short 5 minutes stroll that would lead us one block from our home. As we slowly walked in the rain, I swore at all the cracks in the sidewalk, I gave evil eyes to all the car drivers at the intersections and I also had a small fit when Alice's hat fell off her head by itself. I even looked at her every few minutes to see if she was still alive!
Maybe it is the lack of oxygen to my brain (Dan had to remind me to breath once in a while) but the first part of our trip felt like an eternity. As we arrived at the community health centre, I'm pretty sure that I looked exhausted...oh, wait, I'm exhausted since Alice discovered how to use her vocal cords last night!
Anyway, the point of this post is not to tell you that I'm an insecure new mother! I actually wanted to write about a great product that we used today for the first time. If you are not into fancy diaper bags (we are not), I strongly recommend Skip Hop: Pronto! changing station. It is basically a compact diapering essentials system that you can clip to your stroller.
So we were ready to change Alice's diaper but I have to admit that I was a bit insecure. After all, we are talking about the baby who managed, yesterday, to projectile poop on the wall...more than 3 feet away (I'm not kidding)!!!
