Thanks, everyone. We've all been home since Saturday night. It's been great being at home. Husband and I have been double teaming feedings by getting Henry to latch to my breasts then using a special syringe/straw to supplement with formula to keep his his sugars up until milk comes in. Today I've started only finger feeding as my nipples need a break; have some blistering going on which is super painful. Thought he'd been latching pretty well, but will be going in for the newborn check tomorrow and will hopefully get some more tips. He's not directly on the nipple so I don't think that's the issue, but he does have a crazy strong suckle, the little barracuda! Been pumping every two hours as breasts are engorged! I read breastfeeding would be challenging, and challenged I am. I didn't know my breasts would hurt more than my C-section, which has been bothering me way less than I'd ever envisioned. Other than getting up and being careful not to laugh too hard, pain is minimal.
Redrock- How are you feeling a month or so after surgery?
