Hello ladies! I've been lurking for the past week or so and recognize a few of you from TTCAL/PgAL. I had my rainbow baby on 12/6 and looking for a new place to call home.
Dylan was born via c-section at 38 weeks, 5 days. We were scheduled for a c-section for 12/17 due to baby being breech and waiting too long to schedule. All in all, it was a much better experience than I anticipated, and recovery has been pretty easy.
We are trying to breastfeed, but it hasn't been the easiest adjustment. Dylan likes to nurse a little bit, power nap, nurse a little bit some more on and off all day, and then by evening he acts like he is starving mad, which has me wondering if I am producing enough. I'm working with a lactation consultant who has me pumping to try to stimulate more production in order to keep up with his demand. i probably end up pumping like an ounce total over the day.
I'm also having a hard time putting him down at night and so far have been letting him sleep on my chest. It's more me than him not wanting to be left alone, so I'm trying to work on that!
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and say "Hi!" Looking forward to getting to know you ladies!
