Only a couple more hours separate me from spending the weekend with my baby. This week has been one of the hardest ones yet, with tears shed every day. I’m still not sure that I’m making the right decision, but I’m giving it a try.
The biggest obstacle is that Adelaide is refusing the bottle. I literally tried 10 different varieties before buying this super fancy one that she took two sips out of and then refused. Sippy cups worked for a minute, then they didn’t. I’ve left work early because she wouldn’t eat. We’ve thrown out whole bags of breastmilk that have gone bad because she refused to eat them.
I sit at work pumping milk and just cry, thinking I should be holding my baby instead of pumping milk into bottles she won’t take.
But today, it’s Friday. I will spend the next two days snuggling my baby.
They never said it was easy.
