How is everyone doing with their newborns? How is feeding time going? Anyone getting any rest? Who's going back to work soon or are you able to stay home with your new bundle? How are you healing? What other trials or amazing things are happening you'd like to share?
My lil girl was born on the 16th she's doing well. Sleeps 3-4hrs at a time. We are breast feeding only right now. I did purchase a pump to take the edge off in between feedings but since I've gotten it she's been eating better. Mostly when she nurses she eats from one side then falls asleep, then the other side is full and hurting. But lately she's poops while she's eating so I end up changing her which wakes her up then she'll nurse a little from the other side before falling back asleep.
I'm a teachers aide and technically have to go back to work for the last 4 days of school but if I don't mind not getting paid those days I can stay home and not have to go back until next school year! So we'll see.
My body is slowly healing. As much as I want to workout I know I need to just chill for a bit more. I may starting walking the neighborhood in the next couple of days but that about it for now. I don't know if it's cuz I pushed out a 8lb kid or the fact that I'm 34 (11 yrs older than I was the last time I birthed a child) but man my body hurt!!!
Hope to hear some of your stories! Thanks for taking the time. I know it's precious right now. Go take a nap!!!! I am! Lol.

Doing well. This is my 3 week back at work, working 4 10 hour days, not fun but nice to have the three day weekend. I am still fully breastfeeding/pumping, pumping at work is a pain but worth it!
She is not sleeping through the night but she is doing well going to bed around 9 and waking me up about 2 times in the night. If I let her sleep with me from about 3-5am she will let me sleep during that time, if I dont she will keep waking me up.
