For the past two weeks, I’ve been weaning my little girl from breastfeeding due to medical reasons. The first three days was really terrible! Danielle would throw away her feeding bottle and drink only one ounce then cry literally through the night. J is very supportive because he cuddles danielle until the little girl could sleep. During the day, we would mix her milk formula with her baby food so she would not be deprived of the necessary nutrient.
It was really difficult- we would go to work with little sleep in the night. We were just very happy when on the third day, she began to drink more than one ounce from her bottle (she wouldn’t even drink her milk from a cup during the first two days). Today, she drinks well, wakes up twice to ask for milk and sleeps back through the night.
Now, we could breath a sigh of relief….
