Can I Just Give Her Some Yoo-Hoo??
The transition to whole milk hasn't been an easy one. I always though that after 12 months of nursing her I would be more than ready to just give it up. Not so much. Although it does take the pressure off of me pumping enough at work to have enough for her the next day. I know everyone has a different opinion on breastfeeding, but I am really proud of the fact that I have been able to come back to a full time job and that we have been fortunate enough to never have to give Quinny formula. I see nothing wrong with formula and would have happily given some if it was necessary. Breastfeeding has been one of the most challenging, yet rewarding things I have ever done. Hard didn't even begin to explain how it was in the beginning. I remember Quinn being a week old and it being so painful to even shower that I completely broke down and thought how I my body didn't even feel like it belonged to me (which was pretty overwhelming being that I had spent 9 months with my body not belonging to me). The funny thing is that I never thought of quitting. Anth was the most amazing support and I knew that I just had to get through it. Thank goodness it only took 2 weeks for us to become pros at it!
