Welcome back me......

I have been wayy too busy lately. But one could say that's a good thing. Everything is changing so fast......at such a pace that I think I am going to begin trying to wean Hana earlier than originally expected. She has to be able to stay without boobs for longer than 2-3 hours without a meltdown. As things stand right now I don't see any other way to accomplish my goals while continuing to EBF. I know I said I would push harder to incorporate bottles, and I have made less than exemplary progress in that department, but this time it's for real, and opportunity is not one to stick around for long periods of time.

There are some things near and dear to my heart that I have already mentally let-go of, and still some that I have physically yet to release.....but no matter....it's going bye-bye all the same. Most of all it's going to be very hard to stop EBF'ING for Hana and myself. I guess I should clear up that I am not going to stop bf'ing all together.......rather I am going to let her have less meals directly from the breast, and give her most of her day time feedings from a bottle. I'm guessing that since she is 7 months now.....that by the time she is 9 months we should be fully transitioned.

Now........anyone know how to begin such a transition?? my boys never had to be weaned.

In other news.....

Yes...blog neglect is what I am hearing.....again I have let pressing personal issues invade my precious blogging time. Ughhh!

Well, he gets it!"

Also...I've been putting together more bows with the new hats .....my current craze is ostrich feathers paired with the kuffi hat. so cute. I think I have enough new pictures of Hana in my new hats to release another video of her wearing my creations!

Hey there!!! I am just dropping in from SITS to welcome you! I think you are gonna love what they have to offer and really, who doesn't love new friends!?!

I BF 2 of my 3 kids but my 3rd lasted the longest...I went back to work which forced me to ween. I pumped vigorously and froze it; however, I also started to integrate the formula for him. I would also take 2 diapers and run them under the tap and freeze them. This would be to help rid myself of the milk.

To this day, I can't remember the trick or when it actually happend; I just know that i dont have my boy on my boob anymore...well...he does try to sleep there still...lol

Good luck!
All the best,

Good luck with the bottles.

I breast feed my babies, but I've always had a heck of time pumping and giving bottles.

I hope you're able to accomplish all our new goals.

Welcome to SITS!

I breastfed both my babies. It's not as easy as I thought but weaning was because I introduced the bottle while I was also breastfeeding. Welcome to SITS. The moms here are great and are a great resource!
