In the beginning...
However, his feeding or rather lack of it became an issue in those early hours and we had to resort to bottle feeding initially to ensure he was getting enough nourishment. Although keen to get the wee lad home we were urged by the midwives to stay an extra day or two in the maternity hospital so they could monitor his feeding and to ensure he was taking to the breast milk.
A stream of visits from grandparents, aunties and uncles made the hospital stay fly by. And we brought Uisneach home two days later.
This was easy...or so we thought!
