Expecting a new baby on September 2nd, 2011!
My name is Elise. I just had my son Liam Matthew on April 30th, 2010. My due date was April 29th, and I went into labor on that day
I ended up having to have a c-section because my labor stopped at 5 cm. My labor story is horrific lol. Liam was 9lbs 5oz and 22 inches when he was born.
I wanted to EBF and ended up giving up. Liam lost a lot of weight at the hospital so I had to supplement. I use a paci, I co-sleep, I wear him in a moby-wrap, and I don't let him CIO. I love him with my whole heart...I didn't know what love was until I saw his face. He is beautiful and perfect and I can't wait to watch him grow into an amazing man.
