Naomi Channah joined us on Friday 4/18/08 at 2:38 AM weighing 7lbs3oz and measuring 20 inches.

I haven't written up the birth story yet, I'm trying to get it on paper. Baby's okay, I'm thrilled, Dad's thrilled, breastfeeding...not so thrilling. We're already raising red flags on low supply issues (and we knew this was a potential concern before the baby, so we're already working closely with an IBCLC) and we'll do what we can to get everything in her that she needs in the most expedient way possible.

I've never seen her Dad like this before. It's really adorable.

Congratulations!! I hope the LC is able to help. My PCOS seemed to cause a lowish supply with my first child, but it seems to be much better this time around.

Congratulations! Enjoy your little one! Please don't be too stressed about milk supply - do what you can, but don't feel too badly if you can't be your little one's sole source for food... gentle on yourself, mama.

Congrats! Good for you starting early on the LC. I can speak from experience now, it takes LOADS of patience...
