…but Daryoosh took 3 ounces of milk from the bottle tonight.
The third nipple we have tried appears to be a success. It’s one that we had BRIEF success with Yago as well. The short flat nipple of the playtex drop-in appears to be one that D doesn’t mind. I even paid 30 bucks for a haberman kit. He didn’t like the haberman. I think he likes to suck and that one just made him gag. Luckily, I have a friend using the haberman so I can pass it along to her.
This makes me so happy. With Yago, he would take the bottle until 9 weeks and then had nothing to do with it EVER again. The pros were that he started drinking from a straw at 6 months and I never had to ween him from the bottle. (but even when drinking from a straw or cup, he STILL refused breastmilk unless it was straight from the source.) He would only drink water from a cup or SUPER diluted juice–but that came much later.
So, Yay! I’m going to celebrate with some hot chocolate and we will give D one bottle a day to make sure he keeps up the good work. Our next good habit of the year! 🙂
Do you know what this means? This means that life will be a lot easier. This also means that I will need to get onto a regular pumping schedule. And I have to think about freezing.
STOP. SLOW DOWN. I’m not going to think about those things yet today. Instead, I will just celebrate the first bottle!
