At one point, the mw told me things would go faster if I would get in a semi squat for 2 contractions. I decided to try it, got into the position, said "no thank you" and went right back to being on all fours.
|i had my baby on the 1st October. the birth was fantastic and i have no regrets, i felt so great we all went home after 8 hours and i tidied the house a bit...i could not sit still!
i went back into hopital day 2 though, because breastfeeding was so excruciatingly painful for me, and the homecare midwife who came to see us was concerned about it. she could see nothing wrong with her latch at all, so we're still not sure why...she's 8 days old now and it's getting better, but i can REALLY relate to that "first 30 seconds" thing...though i can at least contain my cursing and muscle convulsions mostly now so it is getting better!! ...and at first thats just how the whole experience was for me at first.
i pumped for a day or two and fed her with a dropper before trying feeding again, it was much better than before. it took 5 days for my milk to come in. i wish i was leaking everywhere, i'd love to pump a bit extra, but i'm not yet. maybe i won't?
we just had our first breastfeed at the keyboard during this post
