My first DD was the same way nursing- She nursed all day long and at 5pm I had to make sure I was home because she would want to nurse for 5-7 hours and not take a break. I kid you not! We would sit on the couch get all comfy and latch on- making sure I had the remote cloese
Then just sit back and let her go to town. It only lasted a few months- and really gave me time to rest, that I didnt know then, but no now was very needed- I am lacking that down time with Breeze because I have Rainey to chase all over- no down time here. I think it is part of bonding and comfort for newborns, it doesnt last forever- maybe a month or two. I say enjoy it! As much as you hate seeing the laundry pile up and the dishes get crusty- they grow so fast, and soon you will think your kid is trying out for the olympics as he is nursing! My DD also slept all night when she was born- I never tried to wake her, I figured her body knows what it is doing. Breeze sleeps for about 4 hours then wants to eat- but that is okay, co-sleeping makes it so easy!
Your DP is a teacher right? Does she have summers off? I hope she is doing well, it is never easy for a mama or a daddy to leave their new baby. I hope your breast heal soon, I have never had either one of your issues, so I dont know what to do...
Dee, congrats on your little man! I am so excited for you, and he is just the cutiest thing
I hope you feel better too.... I am sending you lots of love and hugs!
To all the mamas still in waiting! Sending vibes!!! and
ETA: Jo, I know I have said it before, but I just love your DS's name!
