We are finally getting the hang of breastfeeding. After our second successful attempt at breastfeeding yesterday (after a week of finger feeding pumped breast milk) we went on to exclusively breastfeed all night long. Still working with the consultant (using a nipple shield, which I’d like to be able to get away from) and will need to read up on the things I learned in the class re: switching breasts etc, but we’re excited to have made progress!

YAY! Congratulations to you little Margeaux! Now stop giving your Mommy and Daddy such a hard time!
Jenn and Ryan, I hope you find some time to rest in your newfound free time!
Thinking of you!
Hey there mommy and daddy,
Sounds like you’re figuring things out, as all new parents do. Hang in there if it’s something you’re determined to do, and lean on that consultant. Good lactation consultants are worth their weight in gold….
I love seeing and hearing about your new world……..it’s such a happy, precious time!!
Sending love…..Aunt Beth
my goodness she looks tiny in the swing! glad you are having some luck. funny how you want to get rid of the shield, with AJ I was so relieved to start using one, he was tearing me up! would love to talk to you, but i know how tiring it is, so i’ve been holding myself back :) please call me when you get a chance (soon!)
