Are you still BF? What is your milestone?
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk?
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day?
Have they tried chocolate milk yet?

I hope you ladies do not get offended by this I am going to take my chances though. I was talking to DH on the phone tonight for like 30 minutes and he said to me "Did you make a Monday topic yet?" And I said no, he said "I have a topic. Man boobs Monday. Does your husband have man boobs?" You obviously do not have to answer but I thought that was hilarious!

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? No, I bf harry for 2 weeks, and i pumped for jake for 3 months.
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? Harry mainly gets regular milk, but if he has had a bad days eating I give him some formula. Jake just gets regular whole milk.
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? They both have a cup in the morning and one at bedtime.
Have they tried chocolate milk yet? Jake has but doesnt get it very often. Harry has not.

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? No. Went to 18 months and weaned her bc I was pregnant and too skinny and sore boobed and nauseous to do it anymore.
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? We never used formula. M never took a bottle.
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? Just regular dairy products, about as much as I have them. She loves cheese, yogurt, kefir, and has goat milk on her cereal in the morning.
Have they tried chocolate milk yet? No, we don't plan to give her any either! She has had ice cream though and oh lord does she love it!

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? Yes, in a couple more weeks we will be to 18 months.

Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? Just milk. We used formula to supplement in the beginning but she refused the bottle after 7 weeks old.

How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? She gets a sippy of milk with each meal (along with water) and I think she drinks 6-10oz per day. Plus breast milk at nap, morning and bed time.

Have they tried chocolate milk yet? No

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? yes, he's almost 19 months, my goal is 2 years
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? I offer him whole milk sometimes, but he's not fond of it. He still nurses plenty, so I'm not worried
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? He nurses every few hours, 5 or 6 times a day
Have they tried chocolate milk yet? Not that I recall. I'd be willing to give him a small cup of it though.

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? Yes, we are at 15 months now.
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? She hasn't had milk yet only because large amounts of dairy have seemed to make her sick in the past. I am working up to it again now to try again.
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? She nurses probably 6-10 times a day.
Have they tried chocolate milk yet? Nope

Is there a reason that you ladies have not tried Chocolate milk with your LO's? Is it because of the sugar?

I am breastfeeding Matthew and we're at 7 months. I weaned Ashlynn a few months ago.
No idea how much Matthew drinks but he nurses pretty much whenever. Every 3-4hrs during the day sometimes more sometimes less and every 2-3 at night, and Ashlynn has chocolate almond milk but she can't have cows milk.

DD gets the occassional chocolate almond milk

I nursed for almost 3 years. We weaned about 10 months ago and i am still making milk and felt a let down the other day at work

Never did formula and now, DD drinks mostly water and a juice box in her lunch box. SHe does drink plain soy milk, unsweetened.

Are you still BF? What is your milestone? Nope. Liam missed my milestone goal by a month (he self-weaned at 11mo). Kieran weaned at 14.5 months, which was fine with me. A year is my goal always.
Do you use formula still (if you are not BF) or do you just use milk? No formula, just milk
How much milk / BM does your LO drink a day? Liam will drink 8oz or so, Kieran maybe 10oz. They aren't big milk drinkers. They love yogurt and cheese though.
Have hey had chocolate milk yet? Liam certainly has. He loves it (we just give him a dab of chocolate). Kieran might have had it once, but I can't recall. He doesn't have it at home. But i am not against it out and about as long as i can dilute the strength of it

And yes, DH has man boobs because he needs to lose weight. Lol. Don't tell him I told you!
