he eats!

Little Gerald has finally become addicted to breast milk - wheww! I was getting worried, because he would either cry uncontrollably or just fall asleep every time I tried to feed him. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that we were trying in a chair that wasn't really right for us, but my in-laws were here and I didn't feel super comfortable breast feeding in front of them (at least not right now, I figure as we get better I'll also become more discreet). Plus my mom was here on Sat and she gave me a lot of much needed encouragement and help.

So life is good, different, wonderful and slightly exhausting.

Here is Gerald's hopsital page and pictures. I'm planning on finally uploading my pictures sometime today, just as long as someone enters a milk-induced coma :)

BFeeding is tough. i hope it gets to be second nature for you soon. :)

He's a cutie! Glad to hear the bfeeding is going better. That first week is rough. Can't wait for more pictures.

He's adorable! I was so worried that Madison wasn't getting enough to eat when I first started breastfeeding. Then once I saw how much she was growing, I relaxed a lot and breastfeeding became the best bonding time. It's tough at first but it gets better!
