Sooooo Thankful..My breastfeeding Story -PICTURES-
My Son was born June 5 and I breastfed him once right after birth and then once a couple hours later and he did it like a Champ!
Soon after birth:
Then the unexpected happened and my son had to be taken away and transferred to another hospital and was able to take Nothing by mouth for a few days.
In the NICU:
So he was born on a Wednesday fed twice and wasnt able to breastfeed again until Monday, which during the time in between he was given bottles for 2 days and a pacifier for comfort. So to say the least it was not easy getting him to latch! We got to take him home Tuesday and I started exclusively breastfeeding it became painful but he got better and better with his latch and was having lots of poopy diapers!
Now almost a month later he is doing SO well we are still exclusively breastfeeding and he will barely even take the binky he loves the boobie SO much! :)
Milk induced Coma:
I wish all other such success with breastfeeding I feel so blessed that he is doing so great!
