There's no denying that having a small baby is tough. I've always just accepted that the first 6 months of having a little one means having zero hands free time and therefore no routine whatsoever. The dishes are constantly dirty and there's piles of laundry all over the house but I've found I don't mind all this as much as I thought I would. I love all the teeny tiny baby cuddles I'm getting right now and although Arch is my velcro baby if he's anything like Lily was it means he'll suddenly become super independent as soon as he learns to sit up and all of a sudden my arms will be empty again. That being said there are things that do mean a lot to me such as blogging and photography that are going by the wayside right now simply because I don't have the hands free time to do it .
It's only since getting my hands on the LapBaby that I've realised it doesn't have to be this way at all.
