Another fun after-effect of having a baby is the night sweats.
Night after night I wake up soaked in my own sweat.
Gross, I know.
But sweating it out is how your body gets rid of all the water you retained during pregnancy. Plus with nursing I'm told you sweat even more. Meaning I shall be sweating at night for some time to come.
Another problem I'm having (I'm full of them today) is that because of the sweating, my skin is feeling all dried out.
The skin around the tips of my fingers are peeling, my feet are unusually dry and my lips are so chapped it's disturbing.
I feel like a good soak in a vat of lotion would help, though I imagine very messy.
Any suggestions, ladies?
FYI: this entire post was typed one handed while cuddly a sleeping baby in the other. I truly am a multi-taskin' mama!
