8:15 leave babysitters after chatting too long about random stuff, go to work and pump
9-5 I'm at work
4:30 dh picks up baby
5:30 I get home, nurse then frantically wash bottles, diaper laundry if needed, get dinner ready
6/6:30 dinner
7 try to go for walk/run with baby in stroller or do chores depending
