Weaning Mr. Man during the daytime went much more easily than I anticipated. The fact that he wasn’t feeling well and had a decreased appetite was incredibly helpful.
I did not gain 10 lbs which I was worried about since I have the appetite of a hockey player.
He has taken to drinking from a bottle very easily.
I am not having nearly as many engorgement and clogged milk ducts as I previously did and this is a very, very good thing!
I am not as upset about losing that bonding time with him as I thought I would be. We still get to snuggle during feedings.
An unexpected & great benefit is that we are not having to nurse to sleep for naps or at bedtime anymore.
Formula feeding has created more options such as daddy being able to take over & mommy being able to get out of the house!
Formula is expensive!!
We have to remember to take plenty of it with us when we go places.
Formula poops are pretty nasty.
We are still nursing all throughout the night. We are cosleeping also so there are plenty of snuggling opportunities and I feel so close to my little guy.
