There's a time and a place for everything, even formula
The point is that you don't abuse it, you use it in its time and place!!!
BF can be so challenging in the beginning. Even though I knew I'd be rushing through the newborn stage I've been willing the first few weeks to fly just so I could get over the hump of re-learning to breastfeed.
Nights are the hardest because you're so tired and you wake up and you're crying and saying that you can't do this.... At least I am. And I'm sure I'm not alone.
Anyhow thank goodness for ample milk supplies. Sounds like you've got more than I do, but I have at least 10 bags in the freezer, around 4 oz in each bag. I feel more comfortable knowing they're in there just in case. Insurance!
Matter of fact I dreamt that we all went to the beach and everyone left but I stayed longer. Then I realized that the baby wasn't with me and I was like "WHAT WILL SHE EAT!?!?!" because they were on their way home and didn't have the bags with them. That was a really distressing feeling. I think I did think to myself formula would be o.k. Odd.
Hey by the way everyone, stay off the scale. I knew there was a reason why I didn't weigh myself during pregnancy!! It wasn't so bad but I know at the 2 week mark with my son I was down to what I was prior to getting pregnant. So I couldn't control myself today and got on. And this scale even weighs light as far as I know. Bah humbug!
