Hi Kristen, Thanks for this topic! Just going through these feelings right now as I nurse my 10 day old twins pretty much around the clock to establish an awesome milk supply. My family is around, but it’s hard b/c they are very noisy and they come in the room and then the twins get all wound up, but the alternative of being left alone quietly is not always so appealing either. What was the name of that author you mentioned that you save her books for when you’re going through this trying stage? Thanks!

    Hi Cassie! It can be such a trying time and I imagine even more trying with sweet twins to juggle <3 I really love reading Julie Klassen’s books (here’s her Amazon page: http://amzn.to/2rUQZho). Well-researched historical fiction and they have that nice “take you away” quality. You can often find them on audiobook at the library, too 🙂
