Although they have been assisted by a baby nurse since welcoming Ella Sofia, 4-weeks, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon says that he and wife Ingrid Vandebosch recently decided to give it a go on their own. Talking to reporters on Tuesday, Jeff admitted to being slightly sleep-deprived courtesy of his daughter but nonetheless described the night before — their first ‘nurse-free’ — as "great."
We were giving [the baby] a bath, and you know, changing diapers and burping and feeding and all the normal things that we do. But we just didn’t have that, I guess, security blanket [of a nurse]…It was fun and exciting and also a huge learning curve to go through, you know, and having to do everything on our own.
Jeff — who says he now sleeps at the racetrack instead of at home — added that the nurse has proved to be beneficial for he and Ingrid, who are both first-time parents.
[She]‘s teaching us some things, which has been very nice to have an introduction into it all.
