When Baby E turned 6 months I was hoping I’d be able to write this big blog patting myself on the back for solely breastfeeding E for that entire time. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening. Before my business trip last week we had to start supplementing because I started to fall behind E’s demands. I felt terrible at first but I’ve decided it’s not worth worrying about. I’m learning the art of balancing. I can’t do it all. No matter how hard I try.
Baby E doesn’t care much for the formula but he only gets 2 ounces to 4 ounces of breastmilk. I’m going to keep pumping and nursing him at night. I know I should probably ween him off completely but I’m not ready to give it up. I love the special moments we have at night. It’s a lot of work but it’s all worth it. I guess I’ll save that decision for another day.
