16 Things Moms *Actually* Do When Their Baby Is Asleep
When the baby is asleep, moms hit the fridge.
Have you ever been so hungry that you sort of stop being hungry? It’s like a gnawing feeling in your belly that becomes just a part of your daily life. The ironic thing about motherhood, especially during that crucial postpartum period, is that you need constant nourishment but have zero time to actually eat. Handfuls of Goldfish crackers and the occasional bite of a warm meal just don’t cut it. So when the baby is asleep, it’s the perfect time to eat an actual meal. Moms use that quiet time to feed only themselves, which is a rare treat. And with two free hands to shovel food into your face and no baby to hold, you can make up a lot of lost ground. Plus you don’t have to worry about dropping food on your sleeping baby.
