Yes, that seems logical to me!

At least as long as there are times when he wakes up and only needs to be breastfed, and not actually changed ... I don't think there's any way to change them without getting out of bed, is there? :P

I'm really, really fortunate in that Quebec has kick-ass parental leave; I won't actually have to go back to work until fall of 2008.

It is not a bad idea to have a changing pad, diapers and wipes by the bed.

I had 8 weeks of leave with each of mine and went back to 50 or more hours of work a week right away. So my memories of their infancy are a blur of pumping, working, trying not to fall asleep at work, pumping some more, crying, etc.

Wow, that must have been really hard! I was having enough trouble staying awake at work while I was pregnant—while I was teaching I was fine, but whenever I sat down at my desk to try to work I'd fall asleep! (Thank goodness the medical establishment has decided a cup of coffee a day is okay while you're pregnant.)

I think it's a wonder I managed to stay employed for Doran's first year!

It did make me look at other parents in a different way. I think previously I just didn't have an appreciation for how hard it is to work full time with a baby at home.
