Congrats to all the April mommies, so excited for this thread!!!
Elizabeth was born April 11 at 8:16 am and weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was 19 1/2" long. She was also back to back but nurse had me go on bed on all fours with bean bag under tummy for support. 20 min later and she had turned herself.
I'm a first time Mom and am attempting breastfeeding. Lizzie took to it right away and it seemed so easy. No nipple pain, my milk came in on the third day, and she was back to birth weight by day 5.
1 week into it and it's totally stressing me out. She feeds ALL the time for like 5-10 minutes, I'm obsessed with diaper counts and just feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all.
Today is DH's first day back at work so it's just the two of us. The only thing I managed was to brush my teeth and have lunch, I guess that's a decent accomplishment this early on.
Any other BF'ing mommies out there, Dana sounds like you are. How is it going for you so far?
I so needed this thread, will be so nice to keep in touch with everyone
bernina- ive got rosie attached to the boob right now. its stressful but im also having a pretty easy time with it. we HAD to introduce a binki though for the same reason- feeding every 5-10 minutes! she just likes tp suck
Aw... loving the gassy pics! I haven't taken one of Ava yet, but here is a pic of my lil princess with her headband on lol Attachment 194480
On another note, my dh is off this week as well and while its nice having him home im overwhelmed about handling both kids when he does return to work...Im also emotional about the way i look which i know is all normal but my dh is tired of me crying all the time and not knowing what is wrong lol
EmmysMommy I find myself breaking into tears all the time and it drives my DH crazy as well since he has no idea what to do for me. Truth is I don't even know why I'm crying half the time, darn hormones!!
Lizzie is currently napping on my chest which is wonderful but I'm super thirsty and too afraid to get up for fear of waking her!
