Thanks for all the love! We are doing well. Lukas is 1 week old today–yay! Breastfeeding is getting a bit easier but I usually still have to use a nipple shield. (His tongue is a little short and he is lazy about using it, so he ends up chomping down on me. It’s getting better but it isn’t perfect yet. I’ve had a lactation consultant come over to the house and she was helpful.) I am still very sore down in the lady parts but hoping that is going to get better soon. As far as the lack of sleep, I think I am adjusting to it and I am getting about 5 hours a night. So far that has worked for me/us. The best best best parts of my day are just after feeding when he is calm and happy and snuggly and I can just snuggle and kiss him all over. He is such a good baby and I feel very lucky. 🙂
@DaneLady: Thanks! It’s ok about the Dr. and nurse because in the end, my own doctor and a wonderful nurse were with me. And it was more important then anyway. 🙂
@zen bride: Congrats to you too! So happy for you and your little one!
