Bella and Little Lucy Bella
So happy for you! Congratulations! Welcome to your beautiful babe and what a lovely name
Well you have a basket playing super model on your hands! I was wondering if all that weight on my bubba was going to be because she was so long and svelte ... but err not quite!
Cant wait to see the pics, and hope you enjoy getting settled with your lovely new little girl.
I can relate to the whole BF thing, its different for everyone, and youll find your way and whats best. A couple of suggestions are to slather Lansolin (nipple protection) cream all over yourself, well the relevant bits often after every feed especially if your sore. I had the same problems. Lots of people recommended to me to see a lactation consultant early to get the latch right, which I didnt get around to in the end. Wish you all the best anyway! The first five days were very stressful for me with no milk and bleeding chewed boobs, but it did actually get better though didnt think possible at the time. I also considered expressing milk a couple of times for the more stressful night feeds especially when I was very very sore! Wish you all the best anyway
And I think every snuffle, grunt, wheeze, whoop and the rest of it has kept me awake, but the midwife assures me all normal.
Cant wait to see the pics, and hear from you
Mel, Maia and Lee
