Essay 60%, baby 100% complete.

After scheduling a c-section for breech presentation for next Tuesday morning, my waters gushed at 9pm last night at 38 weeks, 5 days.  Baby was delivered at 00.21 on the 21st May by emergency C - just in time for my 43rd birthday tomorrow!

She's a wee 2.6kg (about 6 lbs) but perfectly formed and extremely placid (so far).

Her tiny rosebud mouth is causing some problems with latching on to the breast so I've been expressing colostrum which she takes through a syringe..

Early days...

    1. Thank you Daryl. Yes, breastfeeding is proving to be a challenge and sometimes it all ends in tears for both of us before bedtime but definitely enjoying her.
