Where the babies have no name

Well, little #2 is here.  The c-section went very smoothly, and he is 8 lbs, 4 oz, the exact same weight as his older brother.  He does not, however, have a name yet.  We are working on it.  My husband is into springing last-minute ideas on me, which is an approach I do not sanction.  We hope to have a name and a photo by tomorrow.

He has even more hair than So.ren did, and it's dark.  No wonder my heartburn was so out of control.  I think he looks more like my husband, whereas So.ren looks much more like me.  He's been feeding well, though who knows if I'm providing well.  We'll find out soon enough about that, I suppose.  

In the meantime, I'm starving and very tired.  They won't let me eat anything until I fart.  I do not approve of this policy -- it was different in Iowa.

Thanks for all of the good wishes!

yay! Congratulations! So glad everything went smoothly - can't wait to hear more about your little one - I have another blog pal just had a baby today too.

Hope the feeding is good this time. Surely you'll be less stressed aboiut it ,though, hey? S. survived after all... I think I'd definitely be more relaxed a second time.

Welcome #2!!!

Just keep at the nursing, it's normal to take 5-7 days for milk to come in, and they don't need much in the meantime.

Fart-related food rules sound totally unfair. How can you heal and make milk while they are starving you?

Can't wait to see a photo and read the highly-anticipated name...

They won't let you eat until you fart? This is what you get for moving back to San Francisco.

Much love and flowing breastmilk wishes.

Congratulations!

What a ridiculous policy! Inhumane and silly. Bloody hell I am outraged.

Hope all still going well with the feeding.
