5 Things To Keep You Busy During Middle of the Night Feedings

Night Feedings can feel long and exhausting. You want to get baby fed and get back to bed and that holds true whether you are nursing or bottle feeding. Here’s a few ideas to keep you busy and keep you awake.

1. Read- I bring either my kindle or phone with me up to Sawyers room and will read while I’m nursing to pass the time.

2. Listen to music, an audiobook or a podcast- Listening to an audiobook, music or podcast is great if you don’t have a free hand because of bottle feeding or just how the baby is positioned on you. Or if you really just don’t have the energy to want to read something l.

3. Research- have you been meaning to research a new bed you want to buy, or look for a new restaurant to check out? Use this time while you have it to get your Google on.

4. Meditation- use this time to meditate or quietly reflect. You could listen to a guided meditation from YouTube or any one of the apps available.

5. Streaming- put some headphones on or ear buds in, prop your phone up and put your favorite show on. It will give you something to do and help time pass until baby is done eating and ready to go back to bed.

Remember that night feedings are just a season that you are currently in. It may seem like it will last forever but eventually baby won’t need to have multiple or perhaps any feeds during the middle of the night.

Until next time, Stef

5 Underrated Television Shows

There’s a lot of hype these days on various television shows whether it be on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Disney+ or another streaming service, or even just regular cable. With the amount of shows released all the time, it’s easy to miss or skip over some hidden gems. I wanted to highlight a few shows that I really enjoyed that I didn’t hear much about and came upon by chance or by word of mouth by someone I know.

  1. The 4400 available on Netflix (not the new one that’s currently on TV – I haven’t seen that one, I’m talking about the one that came out in 2004). Netflix says “This sci-fi series tells the stories of 4,400 people, abducted by aliens over the past half-century, who are suddenly returned to Earth.” If you enjoy sci-fi, I definitely recommend this show! I’ve watched the entire series a few times.
  2. Orphan Black available on Amazon Prime TV – Amazon says “Orphan Black is a Sci-Fi thriller starring Tatiana Maslany in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah hopes that cleaning out the dead woman’s bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she.” This show will have you thinking what the heck is going on and loving the plot twists at the same time. I definitely recommend!
  3. La Brea available on Hulu – IMDB say, “A massive sinkhole mysteriously opens up in Los Angeles, separating part of a family in an unexplainable primeval world, alongside a desperate group of strangers.” I have a thing for sci-fi shows….can you tell? This is a newer show, just released last year, but the good news is that season 2 is set to come out this fall! Unfortunately this one is not based on a book, I already checked 🙂
  4. Imposters available on Netflix – IMDB says it is about, “A dark comedy that focuses on a female con artist who marries people and then disappears with their money.” It unfortunately only has 2 seasons but it’s rumored Netflix may make a 3rd. I hope so!
  5. Revolution available on tubi tv – NBC says, “Revolution focuses on the struggle to survive 15 years after a global blackout.” This is another show that only lasted 2 seasons but definitely could have gone for more.

What shows would you add to this list? Have you seen any on my list?

Until next time, Stef
