I was so wary of Jonas beginning to eat solids.
But now he’s on his way… growing and growing.
He eats his cereal. I nurse still. He eats fruit and veggies.
He likes sweet potatoes and pears and he LOVES his rice cereal.
He still has a nasal congestion (since birth) I hope one day it goes away.
LESSON LEARNED: I can give him his rice cereal mixed with the fruit.
I don’t have much milk left to pump so I bought some formula in case I’m not around and he’s hungry.
How dumb. I threw away a formula that was mailed to me for free… because I didn’t want the ‘temptation’ to use formula instead of breastfeeding. Hmm. Bad choice… waste of money.
LESSON LEARNED: Respect formulas, they’re expensive and may be necessary and easier to give than nursing…
Nursing takes SO MUCH out of me. I wanted to gain weight. Um. Nursing doesn’t help in ANY WAY achieve this goal.
But, it is what is best for my baby. I believe for the first 6 months—yes. After this, introducing some formula when needed will not hurt.
Yay! My breasts want a break!
