The time has come that baby girl B is self weaning. I’m kinda sad about it I’ll admit. The last few months have been a struggle to get her to nurse enough which lead to starting her on solids at 5 months. She started gaining weigh which was the goal but it also has lead to her weaning herself off breast milk.
We bought formula on Friday for the first time in almost 2 years! WOW! I now remember why A was on concentrated, I don’t like mixing the powder, I hate the clumps. But that’s the way it is now [boy is soy formula expensive]. I still nurse on demand and through the night but for the last two days she looks at my nipple as if to say ‘what do you want me to do with that?’.
We made it just days shy of 8 months and I’m proud of myself as I said in the beginning that 6 months was my goal, and as I didn’t last two days with A.
