I wrote this in January..
“I don’t really have any hope that she’ll be able to nurse like normal so that I won’t have to rely on the breast pump, she just is too flaky for that (yes, I called my infant flaky, deal with it) — but, she is healthy, happy (if the coos and smiles are anything to go by) and gaining weight and inches steady as she goes.”
All I have to say is HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! 8 months (5 months bottled breast milk free) and going strong!
And if you end up having another baby, you’ll know lots of tricks and you’ve already learned that it takes loads of patience.
I’m so glad your nursing relationship is happy now.
