But Brandon is not. I’ve been trying to wean Brandon off for a few weeks now but boys will be boys and they love their boobies. *sigh* Brandon is now 16 months now and still has his night feed. I have been successful at getting him to take the bottle (with FM) in the arvo but will a little Milo in it to entice him. I’m planning on reducing the Milo slowly.
The bottle doesnt work at night at all and in the morning, he is up early so I give him a quick feed and then its brekkie. The problem is him getting up between 1-2am for a feed which I am pretty sure is more of a comfort thing than hunger coz he is already on solid and solids means rice and whatever the family is having. Teatime is Milo and biscuit or fruits or yogurt so I doubt he is hungry. And then he is up early about 6-7am and if I am lucky he will fall back asleep when I stick the dummy in, else….he’ll want a feed and might/might not go back to bed in his cot.
He likes to sleep with us – cheeky monkey! One night he was SO fussy that he was in bed with us from his midnight snack till the morning! He very nearly pushed Ted out of bed and had been giving Ted a back massage the whole night. lol Poor Daddy!
To be honest, I have not tried to pump bm for him coz I dont think I have enough to pump out. Some days, I see him get frustrated when he is feeding as if there is nothing there. I wonder if I really am drying up?? Anyhoo, now that he is only on bm at night, Ted has suggested that I start looking for a job. Of course, he will stay home with the kids which I dont mind the slightest so I have contacted my agents and now, got to get my resume up todate.
I’m so going to miss my personal time but at the same time I am also excited about getting back to work. Get the license going, WOMAN!!! *b*itch slaps myself*
