Well, I am proud to announce that today is ‘lil Man’s 11 month birthday and we have made it through with a daily feed or two. Today’s Breastfeeding Blog Hop (hosted by Life With Levi, The Slacker Mom, and Diary of a Devil Dog Wife is about Holiday Survival–what concerns are there for getting through the holidays as a #BFing mom. My biggest concern is whether or not we will last through the ‘lil Man’s 1st birthday and Christmas.
As I’ve mentioned before, we have been down to 1-2 feedings a month and no more pumping. ‘lil Man is staying with my parents for two days, and I have no plans to pump while he is away. If our time together is done…I think I am ok with that, although it sure would be nice to make it through the holidays and get our “1 Year” #MomBadge.
Sadly, I had a taste of what it would be like to not feed ‘lil Man the other day. He flat out refused to nurse. I think it’s because Mr. Burgher keeps this amazing little “Bag of Magic” in our room at night for the middle of the night feedings.
He had ate about an hour before, so had a full tummy, but I took it as he just didn’t want anything to do with me. I went to get dressed, and I saw this hanging in my closet:
What a stinkin’ sign, huh? It jabbed me a little…I took the picture then had to shed a few tears. Luckily, ‘lil Man was more than ready for his nighttime feed when I put him to sleep.
Hopefully we’ll have good news to report in a month!
