we're all here, thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery, i'm sorry theyre treating you and your baby this way! use it to draw strength and become a feirce mama, once she's back in your arms don't let them take her again, I went thru similar with corban and he learned to breastfeed like a champ don't worry too much about that, this is not your fault and you have every right to feel hurt and angry.

apart from that - WELL DONE MAMA! and welcome to the world little maggie i'm glad you're here safe and well

Oh, mama, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience!! I wasn't able to hold my daughter for hours and hours after she was born because they rushed her to the NICU to get fluid out of her lungs and then she had to be in an oxygen tent, and then when I did hold her for the next couple days she was all covered in tubes and wires, and she had a terrible time trying to nurse with a tube up her nose--so I know at least about that part of it, and it is painful and hurts so much when all you've been wanting to do for all these months is hold your sweet babe in your arms and give them a mother's love. But like corban's mum said, this part will soon pass and little Maggie will be in your arms whenever you want and nursing like a champ pretty soon--hopefully she is in your arms right now.

Congratulations on your sweet babe! I love her name, too!

Mom to sweet DD 8/08, and adorable DS 10/20/10

Aw Nadine, I'm so sorry things went so bad I was really hoping it would go well for you. Congratulations on your little girl and I hope you get to hold her soon Dd1 was c/s and I didn't get to hold her for 4 hours, dd2 was c/s too and had serious health problems, I didn't get to hold her for 5 days It really REALLY sucks to not be able to hold your baby.

A big welcome to Maggie

So, so sorry that your birth experience was so awful. The way the hospital responded sounds horrific. I hope that you recover soon and can spend the time that you deserve with your beautiful baby girl.

My heart breaks for you and I know you'll be home soon with that big bundle of joy! You'll still bond with her and she'll know your voice the second she hears it. She spent 9 months listening to it. Get well quickly and more important - get home!!

Nadine I've been thinking of you though I'm not in your DDC and am happy to hear your baby girl is here. I am sorry for what you both went through and for the stupid policies the hospital has . That hurts. Hopefully you will all be home soon. I had a c/s...be serious about resting the next two weeks at least and it will really help your recovery. Just enjoy your babe and take care of her and you. Congratulations

Congrats on your baby girl!

I'm so glad you've finally gotten a chance to hold her. Since a hospital that does not "allow" you to see your baby probably isn't very bf friendly, I hope you don't mind a little bf advice. Please know that you shouldn't be on a "clock" and just let her nurse whenever/however she feels like it. Sometimes you do have to wake a really sleepy baby to try to get them to nurse at first, but otherwise, just stay skin to skin as much as possible and let her go at it. Also, it is VERY common for newborns to seem like they're starving at first. I know it was really surprising to me when ds1 was born, and nursed constantly. And it can take a few days for your milk to come in... sometimes a little longer when you've had interventions during birth. That is NORMAL and babies are made to thrive with colostrum for the first few days or more.

The newest research actually shows that even eating and drinking does not affect milk production as much as we thought. Mama will suffer if you don't get enough nutrients, but baby will not. Even malnourished women in third world countries make enough milk for their babies! So, please don't let anyone make you think you can't nurse her or she needs something else.

Hi all, we are doing great. maggie is amazing. I am trying to forget about my horrible hospital experience. it really sucks looking at pictures from the days in the hospital because i truly look so sad holding my perfect baby i wish nobody would have taken pictures of me... the first day home she was fussy and wouldnt nurse i cried a lot took a long nap and the next day was all better. this week has flown......i am feeding her whenever she wants sometimes its for 45 min sometimes 2 min. she doesnt always latch right on but eventually gets it. i dont know if thats normal. she is a really great baby she cries for a second i kiss her cheeks and she stops immediately. i went back to the dr. last thurs my bp was 140/100 i got put on procardia xl.. i go back tomorrow for a check hope its low. i lost 32lbs already i feel so much better.
thanks everybody!

Nadine
