Two weeks old...

Our sweet Owen is two weeks old today.
Two weeks is exactly how long it took for me to stop feeling like a completely insane person.
I would be lying if I said this wasn't hard...but it gets better every day. The lack of sleep has been hardest on me, but Owen will sleep 5 hours in a row now as long as he is snuggled against me in bed. It took me two nights to get over my fear of rolling over in my sleep and suffocating him. Drew and I have been the typical nervous new parents. In the past two weeks we have been to the pediatrician three times, called the nurses at labor and delivery twice and I completely cried on the phone with a woman from la leche league once. Breastfeeding has been difficult but I am bound and determined to stick with it. Owen has a difficult time latching on, and he gets VERY frustrated and starts pinching my nipples if it takes too long. He is an angry little man if he does not get what he wants.
I love my little angry man.

Im sorry your having such a difficult time, and I wish I had any kind of advise for you, but no such luck ;)
I love his chubby pouty cheeks, all his dark hair! He is so sweet, I wish I could be there to help you out :)
I love you guys!

hes so tiny and lovely. hell figure it out, its probably one of the most frustrating things EVER. the woman that cleans my teeth was a consultant for la leche league.. and she breastfed her own until they were 3 and 4, but assured me it wasnt in public, (not that there was anything wrong with that..)
have you seen this:

hang in there sara.
