I totally attribute it to the natural birth. He came out so strong and alert and latched on perfect right away. I got a little sore but nothing compared to what I normally am. Yesterday I returned the nipple shield I bought :) yay!
He was getting good colostrum from the get go, and my milk came in on day 2. I also think that's because it's my 4th baby in 6 years :)
Will eats A LOT. He wants to nurse all the time. I don't have a very sleepy baby (except at night...which is a blessing!). But I do get tired during the day.
Yesterday at an appointment he weighed 8 lbs 13 oz! That's 4 oz over his birth weight.
Today has been rough over all...house became a disaster while I was trying to do Will's newborn photos...which are super difficult by myself w the boys present. Reece was into everything, and Will wanted to nurse all day. He's nursing right now actually!!
I am really looking forward to feeling myself again and getting on a routine (I keep saying that but it's true!!)
Also some BIG things are coming up for our family (maybe)...and it scares me. More on that later.
