well, she didnt need them!!!

her baby was born last tuesday night. she nursed within the hour, and it is going superdupergreat! i have never seen a newborn nurse so well.

of course, its even more amazing considering how the sOB:

1) scared my 20 yr old sister into being induced at 40.5 wks,

2) broke her water at 2 cm (which she only got to bc her two big sisters got to the hospital and dragged her butt out of bed and kept her moving for 2 hrs), which started the baby decel'ing furiously, and then of course

3) encouraged the epidural, telling my sister it "would lower the moms BP, but have no effect on the baby", then the

4) baby nearly died, but was saved by emergency csec.

anyway, my niece is in perfect health, and my sister had finally had her eyes opened, and theres a good chance she will consider hb for next time.

so, hey girls, WE SCORED A POINT!!! yay!

thanks all.
dummy me...i shoulda linked to the other thread.

not one single nurse even mentioned bottles. it was fantastic!

and as for cafepress...i figured out how to do pictures on stuff...but i guess i dont have the right software to upload my sisters designs. also cant figure out how to do bumper stickers. so my store is just sort of stagnating. oh well.
