Coming home and some pictures! :)

I haven't had much time to write out a birth story. Hoping I can get it posted before she's a month old. Haha. Things are going ok here at home. Breast feeding has been a bit of a challenge. She's constantly nursing at night so I'm not getting much sleep, and it was super painful. I've gotten through the major pain though which I am soooo thankful for. I hear it gets better, I really am determined to stick to it. She's lost about 11oz since birth so they are watching her weight to make sure she starts to gain. But other than that we are doing well. Here's a few pics! Smile

Congratulations she is so beautiful!! BFing was a big challenge for us at first too, but you can do it! Determination is a big part of it. I always found the BFing support group and LLL Leaders/Meetings to be a huge help with learning the ropes of BFing.

What a sweetie! Congrats! It always baffles me how breastfeeding seems like it should come so naturally but it totally doesn't. It hurts at first, and so many people have trouble with it. Good for you for sticking with it, you can do it! Once you get past the first 3-4 weeks, it just becomes second nature.
