He came Thursday the 6th at 12:36pm at 42 weeks weighing 9 lbs 8 oz. He has a 15 inch head, which lead to an emergency c-sec.<br><br>
We've been having some problems with nursing, but other then that he's perfect.<br><br>
I'll try to post more later.

I was wondering if I was going to get any more birth stats to enter into the Rollcall.... Congratulations!<br><br>
Definitely take advantage of the LC on staff at the hospital - it really helps. Helped me learn how to BF with my first.<br><br>
Sorry you had to have a c-section. My babe also had a 15 1/4" head and I have no idea how he managed to get out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Thanks for the well wishes.<br><br>
The hospital LC was an idiot. We'd been nursing for more than 24 hours with success before she came. Then she wanted to show me how to do the football hold. I told her we had tried it already, but b/c of his size, my size and small breasts, it was very uncomfortable and ineffective and just made ds fussy. She insisted and we spent the rest of the time struggling with it and trying to calm ds' crying.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: That was all she offered.<br><br>
We found out on day 3 that ds had been slightly constipated and dehydrated, which is why they started us supplementing. He's peeing and pooping regularly now, and he lost almost 1 full pound in the hospital, but now is gaining.<br><br>
I looked up constant nursing/crying on the LLL website and found info on GER. DS had been showing several of the symptoms, so I began holding him more upright, limiting his feedings to when he just starts to fall asleep and propping him up when he sleeps. SUCCESS!! His crying is almost completely eliminated - he still gets fussy a few times a day, but not the crying for hours...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I get nearly a full nights' sleep <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> due to our recent mastery of the side laying position, so life has improved by leaps and bounds in the past few days. Yay!<br><br>
