Breastfeeding is better than I expected, like most things pregnancy and baby related. She latches on really well (better on the left), and my nipples don't really hurt. The girls are a little huge and engorged right now, but it's a lot better when she eats.
We had our first pediatric appointment today and her weight was 7 lbs, 4 oz. Yesterday at the lactation consultation, she weighed 7 lbs even, so I was SUPER excited about her gain since my milk arrived. Yep, you see it right. She's sleeping in our bed! Why you ask? Because she doesn't sleep ANYWHERE else. She likes to cuddle with her mama's breasts to sleep and then she does great. We actually got about 5-6 hours last night (with feedings in between) which was great. Sure I wake up every 5 seconds to check on her, but its still "sleep". Amazing how little sleep you can actually survive on. And I'm still happy when she wakes me up because I feel like I miss her when we're sleeping. Crazy, I know.
This is my favorite pucker face! She does this all the time and it melts my heart.
Here she is in her "going-to-the-doctor" outfit! Too cute.
