  • Its definitely harder, but I usually try to plan my day so that I either get ready before she gets up in the morning or I wait until nap time. Those are the easiest times to get any pampering done.

  • I have an infant and a toddler and I pretty much wear lounge clothes and keep my hair in a pony. I'm lucky if I get to take a shower without someone wanting my attention. lol

  • My husband won't hardly watch my son even so i can take a shower. so the only time i get to ever have time to myself to even shave my legs or occasionally paint my toenails is while my son is taking a nap. I never breastfed so i didn't have that problem but i just set up a 1 pm strict nap time and now he sleeps for 2-3 hours and i get time to myself. while he's awake, i can't do anything
