The main reason why I wanted to write this post is to cheer up fresh mommies who can’t breastfeed or have some difficulties.
Don’t get me wrong. I agree that breastfeeding is the best thing for your baby and you as well. Plus, it doesn’t cost a thing, you don’t spend time by preparing the formula, you don’t need to sterilize all the ****. The milk is instant. Can’t beat it. Who wouldn’t agree? But when it is not working it is not workiiiiing. Nothing you can do.
Important info first: My daughter is now 5 months old and she is not breastfed. She is on baby formula. It is slightly different with breastfed babies.
When I was little I used to hate carrots. It was all mushy, no taste. And now at my 39 I am making my daughter eat the same stuff. 🙂 No wonder that she doesn’t like carrots. This is our story how my baby daughter started with the “solid” food.
When I was born in 80’s there was no such thing as a bonding with your baby after a labor. The baby was placed strictly into a different room with a window so daddies could wave at you, like you were some kind of an alien. A xenomorph. Okay, Alien is my favorite movie. :D I don’t know why. Probably to make sure that when the baby comes out it wouldn’t get a shock from seeing the mom’s face the first time 😀 and vice versa. Well, you are going to spend with each other whole life 🙂
I am glad things are different these days. I was told that the bonding is very very important. And if you don’t have the proper bonding it can affect your relationship with your baby. That is just scary. Right? You are sh****** your pants from giving a birth to a child and they yet scare you with things like bad relationship with your lovely child. Okay, I am exaggerating a bit. 😀
Well, my bonding wasn’t the bonding you read in magazines about.
BUT… one week ago… I wasn’t in labor… I was in Liberec, testing a baby carrier according to the thorough manual. 😀 Almost like on airplane! 🙂
