With my first, I didn’t have a smartphone so I read lots of books. Do you watch television or play games on your phone? Do you watch your baby feed?

  • I catch up on emails on my phone, look at facebook/reply to messages etc or sometimes watch Netflix or play games. Honestly with 4 kids I find it nice to sit down and take some time out haha

  • I loved to watch my babies feed and focus on them, in later stages I would like to read a book too

  • I used to just watch them. Hold their hand, stroke their face and hair, talk to them. I liked the peace and quiet and enjoyed the chance to sit and do nothing for a few minutes

  • All of the above, watch tv, watch the baby, play games on my phone, catch up on Facebook and instagram.

  • I thoroughly enjoy the experience. I look at bub, stroke hands, legs, face. It’s such a special time

  • I found it depended on the time of day. Some were quiet, bonding times. Others were catching up on emails or reading. Afternoon feeds were notorious for having an older child next to me doing homework or spelling tests. It’s a beautiful experience.

  • i used to talk to my babies while i fed them as it createsd a great bonding experience

  • I would watch her, do some study, listen to a lecture online, Facebook, plan what we were going to have for dinner. Sometimes I just sit in silence and relax for some quiet time.

  • Sometimes I just sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Sometimes I watched her. Other times I played games, looked at Facebook, read emails, Pinterest, etc and other times I watched trashy TV (a luxury for me as I don’t really watch much TV and it had to be trashy because my brain couldn’t keep up with normal TV).

  • Half of my time is spent watching him feed, the other half is spent 4 ways
    Checking fb on my phone
    Trying to handle my 5yo son
    Watching TV
    And trying to eat/cook

  • I did a combination depending on what I felt like doing….watching tv, being on computer or just sitting and watching baby feed.

  • I watch mY baby feed sometimes read but make the most of when they are little
