Starting Bottles

Last Wednesday I started pumping once a day, usually in the morning. I would put 2oz in a bag for us and the rest would go into a bag to donate to my local milk bank. This week I added keep 2oz in a bottle in the fridge. I’m getting about 6-8oz at a time. 

Last night while I was putting Little Prince to bed, Darius was on Young Sir duty. When he got hungry, he gave him his first bottle. 

YS took a little over an ounce, which is a good start. Then he got too upset and I nursed him, as LP was asleep. 

The plan is to do this every night so YS gets used to bottles and we can hopefully avoid the feeding problems and reverse cycling we experienced with LP when he started daycare. It also gives me special alone time with LP, which is good for him.
