Today, Korby, my 4 month old FINALLY drank his milk from the bottle and decided that he can after all live with it. I've been taking chances for the last couple of months to no avail. It was a long waiting game that I was determined to get over with. And today, I got lucky! I have no plans of ending my breastfeeding bliss for now. I'm just trying to at least let Korby have both worlds while I do the same. I guess this marks the start of my girlfriends reunion preparation and then some kid-less trips outside home. Yoohoo! So what exactly nailed it? The MILK ladies and gentlemen. It was all about the milk. You see, we've tried a couple of milk brands. We started with S26 and then Enfalac. He must have thought they were blahs. He responded only with a little nipple nibbling and a scowl. Milk cans were discarded in their half-finished state. What a waste. While Korby continued his distaste, we decided on trying a cheaper brand in the market--Bona. And surprise? He liked it. I mean he LOVED it. He finished a bottle in between gasps and gulps.
So much for forcing him on expensive milk. Baby knows what he wants any way. I've always been an ENFA mom with my eldest child being an ENFA baby himself. I also get too lazy with expressing milk ending up with only a few milk dribbles and sore boobs. My 2 closely-spaced sons however are picky with their milk. Now that Korby finally made his choice, I might get a little freedom moving around doing things on my own. I've been meaning to go to the salon for a haircut or perhaps a hair treatment. My hair is dying for one. I remembered one time when Kliven my now 1 year old was just a baby. I braved my way to the salon though Kliven wasn't so keen on his milk on bottles too. Only to end up with Mom and Kliven in the salon because Kliven badly needed to breastfeed. So I had my hair done with my baby clamped on my boobs. I hope it doesn't get repeated this time. Fingers crossed on that one.
