A mutual friend of ours and his gf just had a baby this week. She had a vaginal delivery and was out in2 days "feeling great".
Here's the point of this post lol:
Thier first day out of the hospital, they literally brought this newborn EVERYWHERE! I can see visiting family and what not but they brought her to the beach too (at like 10 at night). I didnt bring my Baby out until she was 4 weeks old. I made people come see me. But i was also still in a lot of pain. Everything went smoothly thier first night home but they got little sleep (typical). Day number two they had a tough time. "Baby just won't stop crying" (duh shes a newborn and probably exhausted from the day before). Because they were both "utterly exhausted" they called a friend to stay with them thier second night and take care of the baby so they could sleep all night.
Fuck that! The baby is your responsibility! If you're already callin people to take the baby over night there's something wrong with you. Maybe I'm just jealous cause I didn't get that help and I'm living at home, but c'mon! Being exhausted is all apart of the expirence. I've been exhausted for almost 2 months now!
