I had my baby yesterday morning, and he has barely left my boobs!! I'm so sore, but I think the latch is getting better each time! I just can't wait until I can actually fill him up a little bit, so maybe I can put him down for a few minutes. Lol

Congratulations!  As for putting him down....well, that might take a few weeks. :)  At this point he isn't hungry really.  He's just suckling.  But all that suckling is helping establish what kind of supply you'll have.  It's a great thing.

 I was the same way when baby was born I wanted my milk to come in so bad. Mine came in at about 3 days and then baby was eating well. Hope it comes in soon.

He will be constantly attached for at least the first month or two.  Newborns nurse for at least 20 hours a day on average.  They are trying to regulate the milk supply to exactly what they need, getting comfort and just being close to Mom, which is ALL that they have known their whole lives.  Just rest and relax with your baby.

I'm with you on that.  With both of my girls it took 4 days for milk to come in.

This is good advice! I was going to post something similar.

Well this time around, I'm a SAHM and my older two are in school all day, so my sweet baby can have the boobs all he wants!! :) good to know that this may not change once my milk comes in! Thank you.
