OMG!!! I just realized my daughter is 10 months old today. Where has the time gone? Wow!
She's become so curious about the world. I think it's so cute. But I'm wondering if her curiosity is getting in the way of mealtime. Olivia doesn't seem to be too interested in breastfeeding anymore. The last month or two she's refused to nurse before bed. I'm afraid if she doesn't take it she won't make it through the night. I've been giving her a small bottle (3 oz) sometimes she finishes it, sometimes she doesn't. So other than that she's down to three nursings throughout the day. Most of her calories now are coming from solid food. It's a little stressful for me since I KNOW it's important for her to get either breast milk or formula until she hits the one year mark.
This morning I got a little extra incentive to stick with the breastfeeding through the first year (my goal all along). I stumbled upon this article which links breastfeeding to a higher gpa and a greater chance that she'll go to college. What will they think to study next??? Anyway, I thought you'd be interested.
