We are really enjoying being at home instead of being in the hospital! It was so nice to sleep in our own bed last night. It's so funny because before the little one was born I thought that co-sleeping was crazy talk, but it makes sense for the late night feedings for me. We put her in the crib for some naps (right now she's napping on me while I type) but at night she sleeps with me so I can easily feed her. I learned how to feed her while lying on my side pretty early and it's been a great skill. So much easier for night feedings. We haven't had any problem with the cats or anything like that.
Super Auntie visited us on Friday and my mom - who wants to be known as Lola not grandma - visited us today. Here are some pics:
Isn't Super Auntie beautiful?
Our sleeping angel
Rock and Roll!
So far I've definitely had some products that I can't live without:
My Brest Friend - this thing is great. Totally wonderful for positioning during feeding.
The $11 Walmart nursing tank top - these are great. Probably not the best for going out but super for wearing all day and night at home. I have used the two I already have and ordered four more today so I have plenty. We get our laundry done once a week so I try to have enough stuff to last me a week.
I also ordered one of the $45 bravado nursing tanks. A friend gave me an old one she had and it's the right size - score - and it's a little longer and nicer looking. I'll be able to wear it out so I thought it would be worth it. Also I am really loving the lansinoh nursing pads - very essential because I am a leaky faucet.
Oh and I used my PJ's comfort breast pump 3 times now. It's REALLY great and I highly recommend it. I am starting to store up milk in the freezer so DH can feed the little one starting next week.
So today our precious angel is 1 week old! I love every minute with her. She is such a great baby and so much fun. We just love her so much. DH is so great. He does the burping and changing with some of the night feedings and it's so helpful.
Also today my friend Monique surprised us with a drop off of homemade lasagna! Yes! It's cooking in the oven right now, we can't wait. We are getting another food delivery on Monday from some of my college girlfriends and that will be much appreciated as well. DH was going to have to go shopping and now he doesn't. Hooray, more time for us to stare at our girl and take pics and things.
Well, it has been a wonderful Saturday. :)
