Mancat Monday with Nurse Scout's Double Duty

Hey friends, long time no write!! Helping take care of a baby is hard work!!

This weekend I had to put on my nurse cap again. Mommy was sick. I took good care of her and supervised naps.

Now today my brother is sick. Mommy stayed home to take care of him, but I am helping. He caught Mommy's cold. He is a good patient! I even have time to take a break!

Hope everyone else is feeling good today!!

The End of Boobie Milk

Last week Peanut decided he was no longer interested in getting his milk from my boobies. It was too much work for him lol. It is also a little more difficult finding a comfortable position when your boobies are big. Plus pumping was not going so well. So they were not making as much as they should and I would just fill a bottle and forget I should be boobie feeding. So it was kind of a mutual thing between me and Peanut. he has been taking formula since he was born so there was no transitioning or anything.

I will miss the intimacy of boobie feeding, but that is it. Although I never had any major problems like Mastitis or pain from cracked nipples or anything like that, I would get sore and achy sometimes when I went too long without Peanut feeding. And leaking pretty much sucked, especially when by bra pads could not handle it!!!

Besides the ease of formula and the fact my husband can feed him, too I also like that I can see exactly how much Peanut is getting.

Formula is expensive though!!! I have found one at Dillons, though, that is comparable to Similac but cheaper. Normally I would not buy generic formula, but since it has the same things I am comfortable with it. We'll see how he likes it, though.

Pretty soon he will be transitioning to cereal and baby food :(
