Quinn's First Days

Quinn has been a very good baby from the start. I think we had one rough night in the hospital, but really I can say that has been the worst so far.

Quinn has been a great eater from the start. He started nursing really easily about an hour after he was born. He nursed just about any time that I offered in those first days. Breastfeeding was one of my biggest fears because I knew that it was not just me, it was him as well. Those first days of nursing weren't stressful at all. And I know that saying that is rare, so I'm so grateful. Quinn's biggest problem is spitting up, or reflux. He still struggles with that now-- I'll talk about that in future posts. He lost 8 oz in the hospital and came home at 8 lbs even.

We were so lucky to have so many supportive friends and family visit during those first weeks. We were brought dinner and lunches and way too many gifts. It was so amazing to see how excited our friends and family were for Quinn to arrive. We were so tired during those first days and weeks but the support made it much easier to just worry about Quinn's needs because ours were met.

More love from visitors at home...
