After giving birth
to her 6 lb.-5 oz. baby boy, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was photographed leaving the Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., on Tuesday – while cameras rolled.
At home the reality star is jumping right into her mommy duties.
"Night shift for Lorenzo!" she Tweeted early Wednesday
. "I love this job!!!!!"
And later she wrote
, "We don't sleep anymore. We just take lots of naps. [I don't care] as long as I'm staring at my handsome son."
Snooki, who's engaged to Lorenzo's father Jionni LaValle
, has fully endorsed breastfeeding
her "little man."
But she's also taken to another common habit of a new mom. "Can't wait to pump!!!," she Tweeted
– obviously not referring to her Jersey Shore
crew's "fist pump" tradition. "The highlight of my life."
