I had my baby boy on July 29th, 3 days before my due date! : Baby Benjamin was born gently at home after a 5 hour labor and weighed 8 lbs 12 oz. I am just enjoying my babymoon and my wonderful husband has been serving me food and whatever I need so I can stay in bed. We've also had help from family watching the older kids so I am just able to relax and enjoy my new baby boy. My only complaint is engorgement. Not fun!

2 days old

Blessed mama of four

What a beautiful little boy! Congrats to you!

For the engorgement, try cabbage leaves, they worked for me!
