First time breast feeding

First hour

When they finished measuring NessNess and Daddy had a chance to bond with her and I was wheeled back to the delivery room (I was coming from the OR as I may have needed an emergency c-section for which I’m glad was not necessary in the end), the nurse brought her to me and asked if I would like to try nursing her.

I was nervous. Would I have enough colostrum? What do I do? Will she latch on OK? Will it hurt?

My worries were for naught. I brought her close and she automatically opened wide and went for it, turning her head from side to side to get as much in as possible. I was surprised by her strength and just amazed she knew what to do. Like, right out of the womb! Get with the program Mom. It was pretty cool. I watched her feed with a little bit of awe.

Well, that was easy.
