its really hard to cook because my baby is a little high needs still healing from the TT division and stuff, he always wants to be held, so i either have 1 arm or i can put him in a moby wrap, but i dont think its safe to cook with the moby wrap on. he also doesnt really like it and wont stay in it that long. he prefers to be held on my shoulder. i know i can look at a list of what to eat and what not to and i just am confused, can someone help me with like a meal plan? what exactly should i make for myself??

I was a big sandwich person in that stage. Or salads. Albertsons does sell meal salad kits which are great.

I did little to no cooking at that point. But I had my mom and dad right there, and my husband did a lot of the cooking too.

The tongue tie clip really should be pretty much healed. THe human mouth is a fast healer; has to be because of all the stuff that comes in via that route!

When I can't get a free arm my quick go to's are:
breakfast: yogurt with granola or boiled eggs and toast.
Lunch: tuna on cucumber rounds or peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
Dinner is always harder. I like to grill or prepare a few extra servings of meat so I can quickly make sides for it or use it in another meal. For example grilled chicken with corn the first night becomes a chicken salad the next night and tacos the day after.
I hope that is at least a little bit helpful. :)

My son is needy too. I can't put him down for too long or screams till he gets sick. I have a hard time making time to eat breakfast or lunch. I usually end up with egg sandwich and tuna

Well the myth about what mom eats causing gas is not true. Some babies are just prone to gas (my ds was one). Milk is an allergy and u wd know that if baby is spitting up. Foods like broccoli and stuff cause us gas for more "mechanical" reasons whereas baby is getting nutrients not the actual broccoli. If u have a fast let down that could be causing gas, and ladies here can help u with that. Butt what my pedi told me is that baby's digestive system is still forming and that can be uncomfortable for baby and cause gassyness. I gave ds mylicon drops and they seemed to help sometimes. I gave them every other feeding, at the beginning of the feeding. U can also look on YouTube and search "baby massage for gas". That helped us.
So go ahead and eat what u want!
