Friday is our 4 month milestone!
She's been 100% EBF for 3 weeks. My last week of school I had to give her formula for the 2 days I had class because my pumped milk was thawed on our way to FL in April..My mom insisted that it'd be fine. It was not fine.
But 98% of her life has been nursing and nursing ONLY!
I'm so excited.
And it shows that she is well fed. She has, just this week, learned to babble a TON, scream(new favorite), and roll. And she's 4 months on friday..and in some 3-6 and getting into 6-9 month clothes already!

Thank you peimum for the gorgeous siggy!

Reason: I thought saturday was the 28th..oops!
We hit our 6 month milestone last week!! This was ultimately my goal while breastfeeding.
im having mixed feelings on how long i want to continue. A part of me loves it, but another part of me is tired of pumping, tired of fighting him to nurse during the day ( very easily destracted) and tired of spraying milk all over when he decides to unlatch during a let down.
i think i might gradually start weaning. i think i might at least stop pumping, and use the rest of my stored bm in the freezer, and then start on with formula.
today was the 1st time we nursed in a different position and she had reached out for my breast and tried latching while it was put away I know lame but it was very much awesome for me. Usually we only nurse laying down or w the cradle hold. Today she was sitting up on one leg and decided she she wanted the booby. she was nawing at my shirt and holding my breast w her little hands. I obliged and she happily nursed while watching her little brother play w/o latching/unlatching over and over to watch them
