Congrats MissDoc! Both of my labors have been fast like yours. Ouch on the tears. My second degree one is pretty painful and can't imagine more!

Hey! Baby girl is doing alright, better a bit now that we started reflux meds. She is NOT sleeping well though. Won't stay in her bassinet very long at night, (or for any nap for that matter), still wants to sleep on us. I'm really not liking that, as I don't feel comfortable with it. Problem is, when I nurse her at night, I TRY to stay awake, but end up falling asleep, as does she. What are everyone's tips for staying awake during night time feedings? I didn't want to be the mom that slept with baby in bed, and I'm terrified of Sids, so can't believe it's happening.

Personally I watch something on my chromebook. If I'm tired enough to fall asleep, I follow the cosleeping guidelines my midwife gave me as best I can. Firm mattress, just one pillow, one thin blanket tucked around waist, baby next to mom but not dad, rolled up towels tucked in cracks or crevices at the side of the bed, and a guardrail or bed against wall so baby can't fall off. A separate sleep surface is better but if that isn't happening, do your best to be safe. Don't go breastfeed on the couch to stay awake, that's less safe than your bed even if you can't follow every recommendation.

Oh, mom is breastfeeding and not on drugs of any sort and doesn't smoke are also on the list.

Harrison sleeps better now at night but it is next to me. I have an Owlet so I'm less anxious about it. I do follow most of the rules though and I'm not with my husband sleeping. Amanda, do you have an inclined surface like a rock and play to sleep in since she has reflux?

Harrison just smiled for me this morning
