Augustus Neale was born September 19th

Thread Starter 

Baby Augustus Neale was born on September 17th at 11:19pm 8.0 lbs 19 inches!!!!!!

 

We are over the moon in love with our little baby.  We spent 3 days in the hospital and came home Wednesday night.  We are all healthy, he is breastfeeding and latching like a champ.  I was in labor for about 24 hours including all contractions.  His bilirubin was slightly elevated but we did not have to do anything about it.  My milk cam in on day 2.5 and he has been a tired boy because he eats quite a bit, however I am not really on the every 2 hour board the hospital recommends, I like to wait until the baby gets hungry and roots.  I had him vaginally- pushed for 15 min, and did not tear at all, it was a lovely birth- we had skin to skin and he he cam out and looked right at me then settled in and on his belly he found my breast and latched perfectly.  We had an hour and a half to coo over his beauty- he looks exactly like my dh and has a full head of real wavy hair, and steel blue eyes so who knows what color his eyes will end up.  I am so happy as a new mommy- I will share my whole birth story in a few days-
