I am one of those who is 100% against CIO and I was going to post the exact same thing. Put your baby down for a few minutes and eat. You need to take care of yourself as well!
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.
