Day 5 of Ally’s life and I’m emotionally tired. I’m starting to get down. Its normal they say. Breastfeeding is not the cake walk I figured it would be. Mistake #1 was not being better prepared but my awesome husband is being supportive and we’re on a regime that I hope will give us a successful path forward. We met with a lactation consultant today who gave me a good way forward. Now we just have to work at it. She’s worth every ounce of effort…
Day 4: Sunday was a good day: she slept well Sunday night and I had my first real bowel. I know that is just way too much information but you can’t imagine how a hot bath, a bowel and a visit from a friend can make a new mommy’s day.
Day 3: Went home
Day 2: Today is Friday. We get out tomorrow. Ally is doing great. She is the most perfect baby a mom or dad could ask for.
