    Honestly, having family around was what really helped my baby blues. Our family was extremely helpful... bringing food to the hospital, spending time with S so we could get a few naps, making us dinners after we got home, etc. I loved having that support system when I was EXHAUSTED and weepy.

    Also, we only had family and our best friends at the hospital, but I didn't find it annoying at all. Of course they took turns holding her, but we had plenty of alone time with our girl. I loved seeing everyone oh & ah over her... it made me very proud.

    So, I guess I have a little bit of a different perspective. Of course the first week was HARD, especially with our BFing issues, but I wouldn't have made it without our families. Being alone made things worse for me... I cried every time I showered!
