A really long night

Since we've been trying to breast feed Vicki and Keira have been having troubles making it work. Even with help from the nurses it been tough going and we didn't quite know why until one of the very wise nurses realized that Keira has a tongue thrust habit she apparently developed before birth. Because of it she has problems latching or staying latched on. This gave us a very long first night where we woke up for feedings every one to two hours and still Keira never really ate well until 5 a.m. today.
