He's here and he looks great (saw him on Facebook!)

Proof, Barbara, that meconium being present isn't always scary. What happened with Ev was a fluke. Glad he's healthy and here!

I had meconium in my fluid as well, and no effects from it. They didn't let her dad cut the cord and we didn't do immediate skin to skin, but they gave her to me in about 5 minutes.

Taqroy, we didn't do a weighted feed. Apparently they used to do them at the moms group(ran by my midwives) but decided that it was too stressful for the moms.

BUT! If she doesn't nurse, she drinks 4oz of formula. If she does nurse, she drinks .5-1oz. So I'm assuming she's getting about 3-3.5 oz.

Hey guys! He was born at 10:35 and is 8 lbs, 12 oz. He has a strong suck and we are working on our latch. I pushed three times and he was out. He looks like my Dad.

Congrats again! The first time Everleigh latched, it was as though my heart flew out of my body and into hers.

Enjoy every minute Barbara. That newborn smell leaves them so quickly!

Congrats Barbara! He looks very healthy and strong!

Sooo we've got some thrush going on. I got some probiotics and gentian violet, so my kid's face and my nipples and fingers are awfully purple.
