Hi,

I had my baby boy on November 5 after my water broke and I went into labor on the morning of the 4th. He was born ar 12:55 am by c section weighing 7 pounds 4.

Unfortunately he lost almost 10 % of his body weight in the hospital while we tried breast feeding. We are now suplementing with formula so we will see how it goes. I will update later as right now I am exhausted.

Margo

UPDATE
I had a doctor's appointment today and Ryan has gained weight and is doing very well. I am very well too and feel almost fully recovered from the c section. Very tired though as I am surviving on very little sleep.
Despite the c section and a very delayed epidural which I didn't end up getting until I was ready to push, the birth was a good experience. The hospital staff was very helpful and both my doctor and the OB who performed the c section were fabulous.

Thanks for all the good wishes and I will try posting here more often again once things calm down.

Congrats and welcome home! We had to supplement a bit with DS, too, because he was 3 weeks early. Didn't take long for him to catch up though, so I'm sure Ryan will, too.

Congratulations - I'm so excited you're home with your beautiful baby!!! Try to rest up and not worry about the BF'ing - so many of my friends had the same exact thing happen, and they all recommended working w/a lactation consultant. I'm sure he'll get the hang of it and be a little chubster before you know it!

Yea! CONGRATS!!! Ethan latched on super well but wasnt gaining weight so I too had to supplement formula for him. Leah, she was a hard nurser!!! Nursing her took weeks to get used to and in the beginning I cried a few times cause it hurt so bad! And just when I thought I was used to the pain, it started hurting all over again! I realized then why people quit nursing! But I was determined to make it work and now she isnt a problem so it is worth it!
Hang in there, it will get better!
