Comments for Fill Her Up
Harriet was born hungry. The parenting books always say that a new born can go up to a week before a mother's milk comes in. Harriet didn't read those books. She was nearly permanently attached to me since twenty minutes after she was born. The first two weeks with her were hellish with getting her tummy full to her satisfaction even though my milk came in early. She just always seemed hungry.
Over time things have gotten slowly easier. My supply has managed to keep up with her demands and she is now sleeping through the night giving me time to recover for the next day. This morning she did a remarkable thing; she nursed until she was full and actually pushed herself off the breast! She gave me the look of "okay, I'm done." She actually wanted some time to herself to sit in her chair and sleep.
