Just wondering how everyone is doing with their recovery and how they are adjusting to life with LO?
My own recovery has been pretty easy. I only had a 1st degree tear and 3 stitches that have all dissolved and healed up nicely and The bleeding is minimal to the point that I'm down to liners so yay! for that! Not impressed with the sinus infection I got the day LO was born but we are coping.
As for adjusting to having 2 kiddos I can honestly say I'm having a rough time but its starting to even out. They like to play musical wake ups all night so I have been running on an average of 2 hours a night and since DD1 doesn't nap I don't get to play catch up when DD2 goes down during the day. H isn't much help in that regard since he works nights and has to sleep during the day but he always makes sure he's up in time to put the older girlie to bed and read her stories. I'm frustrated that I can't keep her entertained as much and it breaks my heart when I am nursing and she comes over and puts her head in my lap and asks me to play with her. She is such a good big sister tho and has been my big helper with getting diapers and giving the baby special sister only kisses lol.
DD2 is still just shy of her birth weight and the Dr wanted me to supplement with formula but DD HATES it and it gives her horrible gas. I've been nursing pretty much every hour and a half since our last appointment and living off milk tea and oatmeal to see if that helps. My supply was maybe a bit lower than I thought but its picked up already! If we too far past a feed it hurts!! Thank goodness for my pump!!
How is everyone else? Any tips or tricks that you are finding to make things easier?
