The amazing Erica Tyner with 8 month old Daxton. Erica is also step-mom to her husband's three daughters aged 17, 13 and 12. Erica tried for about 3 years before conceiving Daxton. She's a zoo keeper with a very physically demanding job and had a healthy pregnancy but struggled with the smells of the animals, trucks and buildings at the zoo. Erica had a couple false alarms with labor but no complications. Her water broke in bed one night and she started contracting. She went to the hospital and was progressing slowly. She had hoped to labor and deliver without an epidural but her contractions were on top of one of another and she ended up requesting one. Once the epidural was administered, her body relaxed and she progressed very quickly and was able to have a vaginal delivery. Daxton nursed well right off the bat but Erica had a difficult time with him nursing constantly for the first few months. She's stuck with it though and hopes to continue until he reached 12 months.
