Day Two of Life and Natural Infant Hygiene

On the second full day of life my thoughts were more focused on getting breast feeding right rather than on Elimination Communication. After all, if baby doesn't eat then baby doesn't need to eliminate.

Breast feeding is more difficult than I figured it would be, luckily the hospital had very helpful lactation specialists who explained everything and offered tips.

Connecting through feeding time is probably the best way to start communicating with baby anyway, and Natural Infant Hygiene is all about communication. This communication is two ways and both baby and parents are learning. There isn't a whole lot of elimination going on at this point anyway, so there isn't much to worry about.

Going home day is a great day.
