Not me (well, yes me, but that's not what I'm talking about right now.) Kalena. Kalena has gotten lazy about nursing. She is of the opinion that nursing is just WAY too much effort anymore and wouldn't we please just give her a bottle because otherwise she's going to cry when I try to nurse her even though she's hungry because this is NOT WHAT SHE WANTS! I think this is most likely a result of her being bottle fed all day while I'm at work, and really, what can I do about that? Right, nothing.

It's too bad though, because I wanted to breastfeed for at least 6 months or so, but I'm not sure that's going to happen. Even though I'm pumping at work, my body is not doing such a spectacular job keeping up the supply. And the less Kalena nurses, the worse that problem gets. My body wasn't even doing a great job with supply during the first 6 weeks when all she did was nurse, but that's another story altogether.

Anyway, it makes me a little sad. And speaking of sad, Kalena is getting too big for all her cute newborn clothes:( In fact, I got out an adorable little footed sleeper the other day that she hadn't ever worn and it's to small! I managed to get it on her, but then she started crying because she couldn't straighten out her little legs. (It was sort of funny to see her try though.) So I took it off and now it will have to be put away until baby number 2. Whenever that may be. Well, now I'm pretty sure I've gotten off topic, so I'm going to quit writing. Until later anyway. There will always be more later.

  1. I hope she is able to continue. Very frustrating. Luckily for me M hated the bottle. It was too bad for the sitter because he wouldn't take the bottle and cried a lot. Libby would be the same as Kalena if I worked. She hates nursing. She can't turn and look around and it really frustrates her. I still let her wake up once in the night because I think she needs that nursing time for her health - she doesn't get much during the day.
