For those of you who haven't heard the good news, Ant came home yesterday. DH and I were soo excited. The first couple hours went great but when bed time came Ant wasn't up for it. He pretty much cried most of the night. We tired EVERYTHING!!! Luckily this morning we had our first appointment with Ant's Dr.
Ant's Dr was awesome. She told us that she wasn't going to test his biliruben because she thought his color looked great. Who am I to argue with a Dr, I am would prefer not to have to stick his poor little foot again. After the appointment she had us meet with their lactation consultant. She was amazing and gave us several great tips on breastfeeding and sleep. The one that was most important was that I was not to go out for 10days or have visitors. It is suppose to be strictly Ant, sleep, breastfeeding, and eating. After I thought about this for a minute it made complete sense. We haven't had a chance to bond yet and this way we could develop what we have missed out on. Lastly, when people do come and visit we have our routine down.
Soo, this means you won't be hearing from me for awhile. It makes me sad because I want to share with you how motherhood is going. But I want to do what is best for Ant and my family. I will write soon and talk to you in about 10days.
