I’m finally gaining some sense of normalcy. My sweet boy is doing well, and we have persevered with breastfeeding. I had to use a supply line for 2 weeks and have been taking medication to keep my supply up. I’m still using a nipple shield, but I don’t mind. My little boy is getting the nutrients he needs. And breastfeeding is finally becoming a nice relaxing time for me and Cody.
Other things that are getting back to normal:
My moods. Not so weepy and sensitive most days.
My house…sort of. Still so so messy but I am getting small windows in each day where I can do a load of dishes or laundry.
My marriage. Again, small windows.
Eating. I’m getting more opportunity for this.
Sleeping. He actually does ok at night. Feeds a little and sleeps for long stretches most of the time. This is far more manageable than the constant night feedings that happened in the first few weeks.
Other than that, still a work in progress. Sweet cuddles with Cody make it all the better and worthwhile. 🙂
