Home. Overwhelmed.

Last Thursday, we brought our little girl home with us from the
maternity ward. In one word an overwhelming moment.

We're doing well, though emotions have been running high due to
hormones, the all-encompassing sense of responsibility for this tiny,
helpless human being and the fear of doing something wrong.

Breastfeeding has been a struggle, but things seem to be improving
thanks to the encouragement and advice of a midwife / lactation
consultant.

I will post more when I am able. This is the first time I've managed
to log on to the internet since getting back from the hospital!

Try to rest as much as possible. Your job is to nurse and rest. Everything else can be done by others.

Take care.

Oh Lut, congratulation, congratulation and congratulations again. I am so excited for you guys.
And it does get easier (I promise). I know that the first time with a new baby can be completely overwhelming. Hugs to you and the little one.

Congrats on your new daughter! I remember how overwhelming the first few months are. My hormones definitely got the better of me, and I cried A LOT! Don't put too much pressure on yourself, and realize that everything you are feeling is normal. And try and enjoy this special time, mama! Hugs!
