Baby Hayls

Baby Emily (to be unofficially called Milly) arrived 25 mins after her due date on Thurs 29th Jan weighing 7lb 2oz. My waters broke at 3am on the 28th so it was a bit of a long (and painful!) day but it was all worth it. Tried everything including TENS, birthing pool etc but had an epidural in the end. I was totally exhausted and had a ventouse delivery and an episiotomy but thankfully we're both doing well now. Got home later the same day and slowly getting used to having a baby in the house. JUst need to get the breastfeeding sorted now- she's ben OK during the day but not at night so we're working on it!

Well done Hayls! Sounds almost exactly like dd's birth (oh, the memories), except for the birthing pool. Dd was a really good baby once I had the feeding sorted so perhaps it's a sign? I hope so. (have you tried feeding her lying down at night? doesn't wake the up so much, so can help, but might not).

Anyway congratulations and welcome to Emily.

Congratulations Hayls and baby Milly! Good luck with b/f and the rest. I'm finding it much harder work than childbirth, but then I guess it's a case of lucky at cards, unlucky in love or whatever the saying is.

Congratulations and well done Hayls. Welcome to the world Milly . Good luck with the b/f Hayls. I am finding b/f on demand quite tireing but well worth the perseverance. I believe it gets easier as baby gets bigger.
