She is perfect

Just a quick note to thank all of you for your kind words and support. I am absolutely in love with my child. Will post pictures soon. Goldie is so friggen adorable I could eat her up with a spoon. Seriously folks.

Breast feeding is going well, milk has arrived, the ladies a little sore, but am icing those puppys and keeping them slathered with lanolin. My secret that I would definitely recommend to a friend is only doing one side per feeding so that each nip gets a four hour rest. It is working for us, so don't give me any crap internets! When she gets too hungry she gets too upset to latch and that is when we both sit and cry. Tonight is our first night solo at home. I hope that everything goes peachy. Anyway, will give the whole story as soon as i am coherent enough to remember that the diaper goes on her bottom, not her head. Love peace and tenderness. Out.

A thought on nursing...I have serious 'oversupply' and one thing I've learned is that MOST IMPORTANTLY, the baby needs to EMPTY each breast (this makes sure they get hindmilk). Nursing only one side at a feeding is a very good idea.

Congrats on your little one...savor each day. It flies by! =)
