God blessed us with the perfect angel baby and I feel it in my heart to share what the past week has looked like here at the Hendrix household! 🙏🏼 Valentina loves to sleep, makes the cutest noises when we change her and only cries when she's cold, hungry or dirty. 😂This week we conquered breastfeeding and you don't understand how happy I am about this! When I was pregnant I was worried about it and how it would work, if it would hurt, etc. It's human nature for unfamiliar things to make us uncomfortable so I was nervous! After we had her and saw how teeny she was (with a mild case of jaundice) we had really no choice but to formula feed her in the hospital every 2 hours for the first couple days. My fear of bottle feeding came to life and instantly I felt discouraged that I wasn't going to be able to breastfeed because of it (thanks to reading into all the myths out there). I'm not the type to quit so whatever small amounts of colostrum I got, I would feed it to her in a syringe and continue skin-to-skin time practicing latching with her. Even if nothing came out yet, her being on the breast helped signal a message to my brain to bring on the milk! I was tired but I was on a mission because breastfeeding was something I reallyyyy wanted to do! So every two hours for the first few days, my routine consisted of pumping for 15 minutes. I was only getting drops which I heard was normal but it felt discouraging at times. Then by day 3 when we got home my breastmilk finally came through! Yay! 🍼 Now she's 100% on a breast milk diet and the transition has been a breeze! Why am I sharing this? As a first time mom, everything is so new and sometimes it's easier to quit than commit. So many people told me, "don't bottle feed!", "Don't pump!", "Don't give her a pacifier!" & guess what - I did all these things and it was FINE! I am so happy I didn't give up. There are a lot of painful breastfeeding stories out there that are pretty discouraging for new moms. I read into ALOT of them & I'm glad I trusted my own intuition in the end. Hope this inspires anyone who needs it. Whatever you decide, don't let your fears drown your faith during the process! Mom's rule✊

I'm feeling under the weather and I was craving a big bowl of cheesy pasta! Used @central_market Casarecce pasta, San Marzano tomatoes, Italian sausage & mozz!
What do you crave when you are under the weather!?
