Growth Spurts

Question: How do you know when your baby is going through a growth spurt?

Answer: When you nurse your baby before going to the grocery store, and then get no farther than the cereal aisle before your milk begins to let down. And yikes! Before leaving the house, you took out the breast pads! Because, you know, they look so weird under fitted tees.

Not knowing what else to do, you bend down, pretending to read the label on the oatmeal from the bottom shelf, while holding your shirt out in front of you until the letdown passes. But drat! It didn't work. You look down, inconspicuously, to find you've got wet spots right where you never want to see them, just a half hour after you last fed baby.

So what to do? Go directly to the diaper aisle and pick the biggest diaper box you can find, and put it in the front compartment of your cart, hoping it hides the spots at least a little, while you finish your shopping. And when you're ready to check out, you make sure you don't get a male checker. Good luck!
