Rebecca has been awesome with the exception of breast feeding. In the beginning her latch was poor and caused a bit of damage. This is the part of motherhood that no one bothers to share so for the sake of posterity I feel as thought I need to be candid. My nipples were cracked, bleeding and hurt like hell. Each time I look at the clock and notice Rebecca's feeding time is approaching I cringe at the thought of the sharp shooting pains down my spine as a result of her latching. The thought makes my spine wiggle.
However, I was able to find a lactation consultant who surprisingly lives in our neighborhood and was kind enough to stop by on such short notice last night. I optimistic the new game plan will be successful!
Rebecca spent a good part of the day napping and I tried to nap along with her when I could. Once papa came home from work we ventured out for our first time as a family of five!
Thank goodness for minivans!! We made a successful trip to Target for some essentials and each of the boys got to pick out a new toy. I think it's safe to say we were all worn out by the time we made it home!
