Breastfeeding is an amazing feat for any mom. For me, the first 24-48 hours of breastfeeding was difficult (engorged breasts; cracked and sore nipples; and a hungry baby that would not latch). I got through it though with the help of a lactation consultant and was able to breastfeed successfully for the first few months in addition to supplementing with formula as needed.
When we found out that we were pregnant, of course we were elated along with our friends and family. When we found out that we were having a girl, that’s when the fun really began because we could start buying gender specific products, outfits and toys. I also hit headbands pretty hard too. At my shower, saying that my friends and family spoiled us is an understatement. We received everything that we asked for and then some.
I appreciate that it provides valuable information while keeping a light-hearted and 'fun' feel. It's a great community and way to interact with other parents. BSZ is also great about remembering us dads too in posts, blogs, etc.
