Breastfeeding has been a challenge. My nipples are pretty injured but heading, and I am so in love with Kai. He was 7 lbs even and 19.5 inches long. Strong, full head of long black hair, and looks EXACTLY like his daddy!
This has been an extraordinary lesson in surrender, and I have gained an unbelievable new respect for my clients and moms everywhere.

Congratulations! I love the perspective you are using to look at the birth and using it as a way to better understand your clients. Enjoy your little one and babymoon!
I'm so glad things worked out and that your adventure has such a joyful ending! Congrats and enjoy your babymoon! :)
Congrats mama!!! Keep applying lanolin every chance you get. I had both nipples cracked and bleeding with this one and they are just about healed. Good little nurser, but ouch. Should have started applying it from the beginning. It gets better pretty quick.
