I'm actually doing it. I'm weaning. I'm done breastfeeding. Ellie is sleeping better (9hrs now!), she only wants a bottle, and I just reached my limit of making time to pump. Not to mention we've had pump parts and pump bottles on our kitchen counter for almost 9 months now. Ellie will be 9 months on tuesday, I feel that is an adequate amount of breast milk. I don't have any supply strored in the freezer and I really wanted to go to 10 months, but I'm done. I read that to get the full benefit of breastfeeding you need to do it for six months. Check. When I would take Ellie in for her 2 and 4 month appointments they would say if I could keep going until six months then that would be ideal and anything beyond that is just fantastic. Formula is way gross, but she takes it without batting an eye so we'll go with it. I don't know what I am going to do with all my free time from not pumping! Have a cleaner house? Yeah, probably not!
We got a babsysitter again this week. We have date "evenings". We have the babysitter from 3:30-6 and go to a bar/resturant and get appetizers and $1 pints. We joke that we need to start taking CyRide! The girls seem to be doing good with her and she even gave the babysitter a hug goodbye and watched her leave out the window. You know Whitney likes you when she wants to watch you out the window.
Tonight I'm meeting friends in Des Moines for dinner. Getting lots of me time lately :)
Whitney still doesn't like to poop on the toilet. She doesn't like to poop period, but we're thinking of forcing her to on the toilet, any thoughts?
The Rest of the story… and here we go!
