Congratulations!  Thank you for the story and the pictures, you're really on top of things.  It sounds like things went fairly well, and those are some lovely wee ones you've got.  Here's hoping for a smooth adjustment for everyone!

Nursing is going great. Babies are 11 days old now. Big brother is doing great as well. Babies are sleeping on average of 5-7 hours at night, then in the day they are up every 3-4 hours. I wake them up to nurse and they get huge milk baths. I don't know how I got so lucky this time around. Jackson woke every 2 hours to nurse..I was so tired when he was a newborn.

They are so beautiful! Which one is the one with super blond hair? I don't think I've seen a newborn with *that* light of hair before. How striking! Glad everything is going well orngbiggrin.gif

Miles has the blonde hair. I was pleasantly surprised to have such a blonde baby. DH is just as blonde, but I never thought we would make a blonde baby as my hair is super dark brown. We get alot of comments about people never before have seen such a white haired baby. Only once have we been asked if he is Albino.

I didn't post much here, but was always a lurker.. Part of being pregnant the 2nd time around with a toddler!

I had my baby boy this past Sunday (9/25) at 38 weeks. It was the completely empowering I had hoped for.

Pictures there too!

I hope you all are luck enough to have the births you are hoping for.

Mama- It is the My Br.est Friend Deluxe. I had a boppy with DS, and hated it. This pillow is firm like memory foam. I love love love it. There is enough room for both babies, plus I have somewhere to rest my arms. It is large...you can wear it and walk through a doorway, but the sides of the pillow will rub on the doorway. I can send you some more pics of it if you like.

Wa.lmart is where I found it the cheapest.

Thank you! I may have to get one of those. Our Walmart doesn't have them, will have to search for one. A place to rest your arms is so important, mine would ache so bad from lack of support.

I just had it shipped sight to store. I remember with the boppy it always slipped around and needed adjusting. With the MBF there isn't any of that. It doesn't move, slip, it has awesome back support.  :)
