Hopefully, this is only a metaphor for survival, but also a friendly reminder… you’re not doing your baby any favors by overlooking your own needs. Seize the opportunities to drink water, eat food, lubricate contact lenses, and pee when you need to.
In the middle of the night, when Holden cries for food or comfort, I always make sure to chug some water, pee, wash up, and then go in because you never know when it’s going to turn into a marathon nursing/soothing session and everything seems worse when I’m a starving, thirsty lunatic. Just ask Alec.
