Oh my goodness! He is precious! I've always thought of the first 3 months of a baby's life as the 4th trimester and I always just hold them all the time. I don't know if that is the "right" advice, but it's just what I've always done. Hugs to you mama, enjoy your little guy, he sure is a sweetie!

My DS was like that too, its one of the reasons I was unsuccessful at BFing him. I couldn't care for my self, so I couldn't care for him properly either. I got a wrap to wear him with when he was about 3 months old, and soooooo wish I had gotten it sooner. This little boy is practicality going to live in that wrap for the first few months this time around. I'm going back to school full time in 2 weeks, and I figure its the only way I'm going to be able to nurse, do homework and care for my 3 yr old.

So long story short, I was trying to say, you might look into babywearing as an option :smileyhappy:

Oh he's so beautiful! No wonder, his Mom's a total hottie :smileyhappy:
Glad you had a good experience with L&D. Hubby was funny with his grooming :smileyhappy: Mine did the opposite with my DD- drove like a maniac (I blame Hollywood and their super fast labor stories in movies) and I kept yelling at him to 'stop at Dunkin Donuts and get me a damn blueberry muffin' :smileyhappy:
As far as Sawyer being clingy- at this point he's way to young to be doing it as a calculated thing. Too early to spoil him. After Julia was born she'd suck on my titty for about 1 hour at a time. Nurses were like 'u can't be her pacifier' and I was like 'screw it- she's my baby and those things are hers whenever she needs them'. Sure enough a few days later she'd go longer and longer in between feedings and didn't need me as much. She would fall asleep in her Moses basket by herself without a peep. The reason why I didn't want to let her cry herself to sleep was that I found out what the term for it was. 'Learned hopelessness'. I will teach No little infant of mine to give up hope that I'll be there for them :smileywink:
Again- congrats! And now that ur a Mommy- you'll just know what your kid wants and you'll make the best decisions for him.
