Aiden Matthew arrived at 2:28 yesterday morning. 3 weeks early, after 18 hours of totally natural labor and delivery 7# 6oz. of beautiful perfect baby. My water broke quite spectacularly at 8:28am Tuesday morning.

I'll update more later... we're still in the hospital now and will be heading home tomorrow.

Nursing is going ok... he seems to only like one side, we're having a really tough time with the left side.

I won the decision on circing the lil one. We won't be doing it. YAY!!

Woohoo! Welcome Little One! Way to go, Mama!!!!

As far as preferring one side, one thing that helps some is if you're doing the football hold on the side he prefers, then do the cradle hold on the side he's not accepting (or vice versa) so that his "approach" to the breast is the same. Could be a chiropractic issue or cranial sacral issue if it doesn't easily resolve (as in it causes him pain to turn his head to that side). Hope it's a non-issue by the time you read this post anyway!

Happy Babymoon!
