Breastfeeding No More

Nine months and a week, that’s how long I have breastfed Baby Job. I wanted to breastfeed longer but the little one just stopped. He did not want to take mommy’s milk anymore and my supply was also very low. I was also very stressed and emotionally down, I was crying for days and felt so so low when Baby Job turned 9 months. I guess that contributed to my milk loss (if that’s the term). And weeks before, I was always out of the house, I had a lot of errands to do and was out of town too and had to leave Baby Job to the nanny’s care and had him on formula.

So now, he’s into formula. I am back to washing and sterilizing baby bottles again… daunting task… aarrggghhh… :(

Baby Job… your daddy and I will have to work harder now…

He finishes a can of formula in just 4 days and he can gulp down a full bottle in just a few minutes! Whew! He’s getting heavier by the day and my back hurts already! Talk about getting old here, LOL! :-)

    I know how you feel mommy. I was only able to breastfeed for 3 months. Waaaaaaaa…. I am always washing and sterilizing bottles and buying formula. Just as long as our babies are happy and healthy, then that’s the most important thing. :) Hope you guys are doing okay and take care! :)

    To quote, “Baby Job… your daddy and I will have to work harder now…” —- WORK HARDER ON WHAT? THE NEXT BABY? Hahaha. Just kidding, Pinx! I know how high a maintenance it is to have your baby on formula. Makabuslot jud na bulsa labi na kung kusog mag-dede. :(( I told myself not to breastfeed my second one like I did Triz taman 2 years old jud sya, but then I realized nga if I have enough supply, why not, right? I shouldn’t deprive my baby from the best nutrition that I can give. As long as stay-at-home ra ko, I will breastfeed. Mao na akong gi-promise sa akong sarili now nga hapit na mogawas si Baby#2. :))

    Hassle jud mag-bottle feed kay manghugas sa bottle and all. Wa jud mi kaagi ana kay Triz. Samot na akong bana, swerte kaayo. LOL.

    BPC hop!

    I never thought it can be possible, because I take breast feed with my little boy until he got at the age of 1 year and 6 months… You will spent to much money with that.. LOlz
