Bonding with Baby

the baloney bug

Literally two days after Adelaide was born I filed a claim with insurance for my breast pump.  They’re now totally free through Obamacare, so I of course wanted to take advantage.  After six weeks my pump finally came in and then I sat and stared at it for another two weeks.  All the cords and little pieces made it seem so intimidating to me.

I finally decided to go for it and it ended up not being so difficult after all.  Then I was nervous that Adelaide wouldn’t take the bottle since she was nearly eight weeks old, but she took it like a pro.

It was so special to see Jon feed Adelaide for the first time.  It’s been such a bonding experience for me to get to breast feed her, and it meant so much that Jon got to experience feeding her as well.  There’s really no greater feeling than watching your husband holding his daughter.  Talk about melting your heart.

Feeling pretty lucky over here.  Wishing all the mamas and mamas to be out there a Happy Mother’s Day.  Happy Friday everyone!

    Sweet picture of Jon & Adelaide! I just LOVE how she is “holding” the bottle with her little hands! PRECIOUS! Hugs! ♥♥♥♥

    Awesome!! Glad it all worked out! 🙂

  3. Good job sweet baby girl!!! I wish I’d kept at it with the bottles. Once Reed took it once I think I just assumed he’d do it and wasn’t consistent about it. Now he flat out refuses and we’re basically attached at the hip. By the way I have the manual pump (which I hated, but could be good for a car trip or emergency) that goes with those bottles, plus a ton of washed & unused bottles/nipples. If you want any of it let me know and I’d be glad to send your way!
