Woo! So Scott has finally gotten off the nipple shield. He and I went cold turkey yesterday and although it was a bit of a fight, he seems to have come through to the other side none worse for the wear. He's even starting to get the hang of self latching. In fact, I cried last night when he did it for the first time successfully.
In other news, he was awake from 7:30am-3:00pm with only about 45 minutes of nap in there. That's a long time. Especially since I'm on solo night duty for 3 nights. I'm pretty exhausted.
And I need a shower.
But he's sleeping now and that's a good thing. :)
Also, he's now been alive in two different months. He survived his first holiday fairly uneventfully. I'm excited about all of the future holidays we get to have together too!
Scott is 19 days old.
