I don't know that the reality has set in altogether yet...
My milk finally came in on Monday, and Lucy has been considerably happier since. The first couple of days she would sleep only for 30-40 minutes at a time. I was pretty ragged! We even supplemented with some formula on Sunday because I was just emotionally and physically exhausted and so sad that I couldn't feed her. But now, last night for example, she slept from 11 to 2 and then from 3:30 to 5:30. So nice to get entire cycles of REM sleep before shocking awake to the realization that there's a baby crying in the room.
My mommy leaves tomorrow. I've been trying to convince her to stay another week or move in, but she's not hearing it. She's been an awfully nice help around here. I highly underrated the importance of emotional support. I kind of wish we lived closer to family for situations like this.
Lucy seems to change so much every day. She's gaining weight and is more alert between naps:
