Anyway....the very first night of my sons birth the nurses were going crazy hounding me insisting the baby have a full nursing session! I had ALOT of pain meds and got my last bolis of meds like 20 minutes before he was born (didn't realize how close he was to coming)...so i think he got alot of that in his system. He was so groggy and wanted nothing to do with nursing. he would do it for a minute or two--showing us that he knew how--but then fall back to sleep b/c he just wanted none of it!!
had I been a first timer I would probably been freaked out thinkning he was starving and let them give him formula. Luckily, I know better and knew he nursed right after birth and would do fine as soon as he was feeling more alert. But now i know why women give up so quick--i really wanted to just tell them to leave me alone and give the poor kid--and his poor exhausted momma a break--
Now on day 4 he is nursing as fine as he can--considering I am like overflowing and he can barely get a good latch--but I know that too resolves on its own!!
Just wanted to vent a little about the pushy nurse and I guess Im feeling a little proud that i didn't let her get to me and cave in to formula:)
