On Wednesday September 24th at 1:19PM our beautiful baby boy Max was born.
He came in screaming into the world and then decided to pee on me right after one of the nurses plopped him on me.
My labor was pretty easy in comparison to the stories I have read and heard so I really need to thank him for not being an exceptionally big baby (esp not having a big head)…
He eats really well …. and not knowing about cluster feedings, I was in complete shock of how much he was eating.
I can’t say everything is going wonderfully and things are all sunshine and rainbows because that is just not realistic with a newborn. However, we are over the moon with this little guy. Yap and I can’t still believe that we are parents.
For me, I was shocked to not immediately feel like a mother once he was born. I am doing all the things for this guy to make sure he’s thriving in his new world but feeling like a mother is taking a lot longer than I expected. I guess it is because I still feel like a kid in some ways.
One thing for sure though is that feeling of selfishness of my time is completely out the window. And for women who are able to breastfeed, they have such a mental toughness to get through it. I use Netflix and my iPad to get through the pain. . .especially when he cluster feeds.
Although, it is really cute when he eats too much and gets milk drunk. See picture below.
