I know the old adage that when the baby sleeps so should the new mom. I can only nap so much. We spend the mornings up and playing and feeding(nearly every hour). The last couple of afternoons have been about sleep for Emma. She wakes to feed every couple of hours.
I used to be able to nap. I could close my eyes and actually sleep. Not so much anymore. Now I just close them and rest. It helps but it's not sleep.
And so I take these moments in the afternoon not sleeping to have something of a life, if a drowsy one.
