Need to slow down

My life has started becoming crazy busy again. I'm working almost at the same pace I used to work at before I had a kid (which was ridiculous in itself) ... except now I have an infant in tow. I'm starting to feel a bit overwhelmed ... I have 3 performances this month, the first of which is this Friday in Las Vegas! I'm super-excited about dancing again, but feeling frustrated that I'm just running around trying to keep up with my own life.
After this week, I have to slow down, otherwise I'm going to run myself into the ground.

New iPad

Loving my new (and first) iPad! Saving my thumb from all the time I was spending on the phone. Though my thumb is still stuck and swollen when I wake up these days :(
At the studio, recording new music for Kathak with Guru Ji and our awesome musicians. I'm so excited at the thought of working up to dancing to these new tracks.

Enjoyed it while it lasted...

Baby's been waking up in the middle of the night to feed the last few nights. The waking up doesn't bother me, since I used to wake up anyway to pump. But now I'm not storing any milk bc I'm feeding him at night.

Somehow I went thru 2 months of accumulated frozen milk in 1.5 months... So I need to stop doing the whole 'ill have a glass of wine n baby can drink from the bottle.' oh well, it was fun while it lasted. I need to lose weight anyway.
Secondly, my milk production seems to have dramatically decreased. Don't know if it's the stress of this tour (can't wait till may 12th!!) or the fact that I may have gone a little overboard on the dieting in the last couple of weeks. Anyway,am trying to eat better and hope that the milk flow will return.
Also need to figure out how to get him to sleep thru the night again. My suspicion is that bc we're not doing that last bottle feed anymore, he might not be getting enough doodh at night and then wakes up hungry.
Anyway, I've psyched myself up- its not the end of the world if I have to start supplementing w formula. We had a good 3 months fully breastfed run. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed tho!
