  • I can’t wait to hear how it goes too! As the birth of our baby draws near, I am feeling much more aniouxs about what my role will be, or rather, how it will feel to NOT be the sole provider of our baby’s nutritional needs. I can imagine that it would/will feel really amazing to still get to nurse him every so often (which is our loose plan, but we’re waiting to see how things go). How does Lyn feel about your nursing the baby now that it’s real and happening and not just theoretical? Is she as excited as you are? I feel like maybe my wife is feeling a little more protective of her relationship with the baby the closer she gets to birthing him. Which I completely understand, 100%. But it does make me feel a little worried. I don’t want her to feel like she HAS to let me nurse the baby, and I really hope that it ends up being her idea, not mine. I am also just wondering more about how things are going for you guys in first time/second time world. Does it feel different to be on the other side, post-birth? Is there any sadness in that? I find myself worrying that our new baby will be more dw’s baby than mine, which is a worry that I’ve had all along, in a way that I don’t think you guys have. I do anticipate that I will feel somewhat left out, but am trying to prepare myself so that I can remain a fully supportive partner regardless of what I’m feeling. Maybe all of my worrying is for nothing, and things will feel perfect once the baby is actually here. But I’m guessing that there will be an adjustment of some size or another.Hoping your babymoon is going wonderfully!
