A first time....


Today Lauren had her first bottle. We had tried once before and she completely objected to it. My mom brought over a Dr. Brown bottle and it was a success! I was so proud of the both of them for being patient with each other, both learning to do something totally foreign for each of them. The sight, though I kept my distance (experts say that a baby can smell their mommy 20 ft away!) brought tears to my eyes. The first of many first times.....

I totally understand what you mean Melissa...the first time Bobby bottle fed Parker (my oldest) I cried too! Even though he was getting breastmilk through that bottle, I was still sad cuz I wasn't the one feeding him! So crazy! Just that inner mommy guilt! Its nice to have a break though & much easier the second time around. Bobby was feeding Griffin from a bottle within days of us being home from the hospital! It will get easier for you too! Hope you are enjoying your time at home!
