The first two nights we spent at the hosiptal I was still very sore from surgery and I could barely get out of the hospital bed so Connor slept with me in the hospital bed. I was also struggling a little with breastfeeding since I didn't get to put him to the breast right after delivery (sigh) so it was nice to have him close to try feeding him as much as possible.
Once we got home the plan had been to have him in his crib next to our bed but I couldn't sleep on the side with the crib because it was too hard for me to get out of the bed since I was still very sore. I ended up putting Connor right next to me in the bed all swaddled and basically held him the first two nights at home because I was so nervous to roll over him.
As I started feeling better I started sleeping on the side of the bed where his crib is attached and at the beginning I could get him to fall asleep in his crib and then when I would feed him I would let him fall asleep on me which quickly transitioned into him having to sleep on top on me all the time. We went on this way for a while and then we discovered that he slept well in his car seat so we put his car seat in the crib and put him to sleep in that (sounds a little weird but it works!)

Since my husband works from home, most days he wakes up at the same time as C and I do. Wake up time is always decided my C himslef. He kicks me in the stomach every morning until I wake up! After I feed him Johnny and I play with him in bed and enjoy all of his adorable baby smiles and coos. There's just nothing like it!
|I mean who wouldn't want to wake up to this face ;)|
However, it's still a few months away so for now we are going to enjoy C being a little baby and snuggling as much as possible! Thoughts?! Leave a comment :)
Have a blessed week!
