It is getting easier!

At a little over 5 weeks it's getting easier! A routine is getting established, I've figured out how to do a side lying feed (that is a godsend!) And things seem much better with more sleep lol!

So here's to happy feeding, at least until the next growth spurt!

Yay!! It is very difficult in the beginning but once you get past the first few weeks it smooth sailing

Close! Mine was 8/29.

But yeah, even though I have a inner ear infection that would stop an elephant and I was sicker than a dog this week, I have gotten more sleep than ever so I think that's what has helped more than anything. I *had* to master the side lying, I was so sick, I *had* to. Now don't get me wrong, I still need to tweak it. I have very big breasts, she's very small and without head control just yet, I have to hold it for her, so I can't sleep like that, but I can still "rest."

Yeah!!! So happy to hear that for you! You don't realize how great rest and sleep is until you've gone without and then get more sleep again! I had strep earlier this week so I know about feeling like crud! Hope your ear infection gets better!

Being able to nurse while laying in bed is a life saver - enjoy the sleep!

This has been the last 48 hours for me, too. I have slept a total of 4 broken hours in 48, and my head is pounding and I have no help. I'm angry, too. Not at dd, just in general, bad mood. Sigh. We can ride it out together, eh?
