Hands free device

I am a hands free lover. If you have seen me in the last year you have no doubt noticed I’m one of those obnoxious people with a Bluetooth crammed in their ear. Don’t knock it til you try it! (it’s my way of getting things done and still keep up with everysingle last detail of the lives of my sisters, mom and bf who live out of state.)
I first bought a Bluetooth for my middle sister while she was preg for fear of how her new baby would impact our long phone chats. She convinced me to buy one and so you can blame her if you think I’m talking to you in Rouse’s.
But I digress. The hands free device to which I refer is Wilder.
There are many inconveniences to breast feeding. But let’s get real … There’s just no easy way to keep a baby well fed. But I have grown to appreciate that breastfeeding a baby who can latch unassisted is a beautiful thing and is about 99% responsible for my blogging. It’s amazing what one can do with free hands, an iPhone and 20 minutes (or 30…or 45…or an hour) in which you can’t get up and go anywhere.
And so as of late Wilder has proven to be the most fantastic of hands free devices I’ve ever known.


About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.

    Have you fallen asleep while BF-ing yet? I used to be sitting in the rocker, reclined back feeding Austin (in the wee morning hours) and totally pass out asleep. I was always amazed that my subconscious mothering skills never allowed me to drop him 😉 Just wait till if you have two kids- I could BF Austin while getting Bella dressed, fixing dinner, vacuum etc… (Bella was 2.5 yrs old when Austin was born). Hands free time becomes a rare thing once you have kids (one of mine is always in my arms or asking me to help with something!)… Makes you appreciate any small chance you get to do anything without a small person needing you first! I’m enjoying reading your journey into mothering. Call or text if ya ever need anything!

    • Lol Jess. I haven’t fallen asleep yet. But when he was v young I would wake in the night and start frantically searching for him in the bed for fear I forgot to put him back in his bassinet. It was a contributing factor to us deciding to put him in his crib at two and a half weeks. Our house ain’t the Biltmore so I consider the short walk to his nursery good to get me semi awake lol.
      I think once you have kids you should get the option for an extra hand or more hours in the day!
