Over the weekend we let my mom feed him a bottle and my dad. We think that we might have to upgrade the nipple flow so that he gets a little more, more quickly than the size 0+ mos nipple. We're trying this tomorrow so that I can see how he likes it. Oh and he also took a bottle from me too! That was pretty sweet.
Last note for today about breastfeeding... I counted all of the milk that I have frozen and I have 105.5 oz frozen as back up for when we aren't together. My hope is that I pump as much as he needs and my stock will stay up until I really need it. It feels great having that much banked before I go back!
It's been such a joy and I look forward to every day that I get to nurse him the whole day! Those days will mainly be the weekends, but still better than none. He's such a sweet boy and those moments are just the best.
I cannot get over how fortunate I am to be able to breastfeed Coen. It's been so rewarding and so special for me and for our family.
