My baby boy, Landon, was born at home this morning (Nov. 19) at 8 a.m. after about 11 hours of labor. He weighs 7 lbs. 10 oz. and is 19.5 inches long. He is absolutely wonderful and I can't stop staring at him. We are having some trouble with nursing, but I know that will just improve with time. I will post a birth story later, but I just wanted to share my good news!

ETA:
Landon on his birth day - http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g1...h_IMG_0975.jpg

The nursing is going much better now. It took a few days, and he lost quite a bit if weight, but he is a champ now! Still no birth story written up, but it will come someday.

Sarah , wife to Tyson :, SAHM to Landon (5), Coleson (3), and new baby boy due any day!

Congratulations Mama, Hang in there with the nursing. It can be challenging at first but will reward you in so many ways. Take care.

Welcome to the world Landon! And congratulations to you and your family mama. My personal biggest help when I had some trouble nursing my son was my breastfeeding veteran neighbor. I hope you have someone similar that can give you some great advise if you need it.
