Time flies when you have an adorable baby! Madeline is four months old tomorrow and I am just now getting around to sharing her fourth trimester and my favorite sleep products with you. Feel free to leave me questions in the comments section!
After Madeline was born, we ended up staying two nights in the hospital because it took a while (almost 24 hours!) for her to pee for the first time. She was a hungry, hungry girl and started pooping right away, but didn’t pee until a nurse gave her a bath when she was about twenty-four hours old. She wanted to nurse frequently and only slept for short periods of time, so I was completely exhausted. Finally, on the morning of January 4th, she was discharged and we got to bring her home.
The first few days were a blur. My mom was with us and my dad and stepmom arrived a few days after we got home. It was so nice to have my family around, as well as Ben’s, to feed us and love on our new baby in between nursing sessions. I wasn’t feeling too bad; I had some pain where my stitches were, but breastfeeding was actually more painful! I had to pee about every two seconds and was hungry and tired all the time, but other than that, I was just so happy.
