the first week home...

If you had your baby away from home (or even home births could count), do you remember how you felt the first week you were home with your baby(ies)? The first week after I had DD, we had to stay in the hospital because she was in NICU. Once we got home, the first night was great, and then all I remember after that was being an emotional wreck. I had PPD and I dont remember many details.

    It was pretty calm and quiet.Hubby took 6 wks off after she was born so we just hung out at home napping when baby napped.

    Zombie mode is how I felt, I've never been more exhausted and inlove at the same time :)

     It was a blur and wonderful. I was overflowing with emotions and it felt surreal. I felt so blessed to have such healthy little babies

    With my first, I don't remember much of anything (he is 17 years old). I do remember he wouldn't latch though. Finally got him to latch fully at 6 weeks old.

    With my second, he got sick while in the hospital after having him. The day after I brought him home, he had to go back into the hospital since he wouldn't nurse and had a 100 degree fever.

    With my dd, she was in the NICU for 5 days due to blood sugar issues and IVs. The next week or so was weaning her off the bottle.

    Hectic. I was in the hospital for the first 5 days and had to go to the ER the day after we came home. I didn't really have much time to get the hang of taking care of my son at home that first week. Once we finally settled in more, it just moved too fast to remember much. I mainly remember trying to figure out some sort of routine/schedule and being unsuccessful at that lol
