It's been so crazy here the last few weeks that I never got a chance to post that my lil man Brennyn was born on Saturday March @ 7:29pm weighing 7lbs 8 ounces & 19.5 inches long. He spent 10 days in the NICU thanks to my medication but has been home for a little over 2 weeks & has settled right in. The hospital decided to force bottle feeding & the use of a pacifier so now he will NOT breastfeed & needs the soother to calm himself to sleep. I've tried everything to get him to breastfeed including lactation consultants appointments & they can't get him to latch & stay on either. Thankfully for now I'm pumping & feeding him the breast milk in a bottle... but not sure how long that will last as the other 2 kids need time with me as well & being a single mom isn't easy with 3.
Sorry for the delay & Congrats to everyone on the birth of their lil ones :-)
He was born with his ear to the sky, cord wrapped around his neck 3 times & his head got stuck resulting in the use of the vacuum to get him out. resulting in a 2nd degree tear & 40 stitches :'-( . DEFINITELY my last child lol. traumatic as it was he`s perfect & I forget how horrible it was until I try to move. :-)
