July 28, 2011 (2 weeks old): There is no potty break when an infant is hungry. Ya just gotta hold it.
So often I neglected my own body’s urges and instead tended to my daughter. I would get upset when Dan wouldn’t do the same. He would wake up to feed Mila and let her cry in her crib until he tended to his bathroom duties, (even now I’ll check on her, give her her pacifier and then go to the bathroom). I soon learned that Mila will survive and I really don’t want a bladder infection. It takes only a minute to go so as long as she’s not in any danger, I now take care of myself when absolutely necessary.
