Iris has finally got the hang of bottle feeding! Ohhh, at last! It's taken all weekend, and I don't know how many attempts, but Madam has finally just had a straight 2oz of EBM. It's such a milestone - I might finally be able to go out without her for more than an hour at a time. There's even a chance that me and DH can go out for the evening and have a drink together! I'm just going to have to make sure that I pump regularly, so that she gets a bottle every day; now that she's got the hang of it, I don't want her to forget how to do it.
ETA: Forgot to mention, we've tried bottle feeding Iris before, but she's never taken to it. And she doesn't have a dummy, either, so she's not used to artificial teats. That's the reason for my ridiculous proud Mum moment.
