Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Circus Supplemental

The day has finally arrived....

The day I knew would come...

The day I had to send formula with Miles to the sitter. :0(

When I picked him up yesterday she told me she had ran out of milk. I have only been pumping 4-5 oz at a time and she said he's been taking that plus like 1 more oz out of another bag. The timing couldn't have been more perfect though, on Miles' part. She usually feeds him around 4:15 or so, but yesterday he was either having another growth spurt or was just extra tired from his long weekend and slept from 3:00 until I picked him up at 5:20. So that was a blessing, otherwise she would have been dealing with a screaming, starving baby.

It still makes me sad though, to know that I can't keep up with his needs anymore. But it also makes me happy to know that he is growing and is one step closer to starting solid foods. The books I've read say you can start 4-6 months. I want to wait until his 4 month checkup with the pediatrician on 8/17 to see what he thinks.

Any other BF'ing moms supplementing too? What are your thoughts?

Tonight we are going to the circus! YAY! We are going with S&J, Drew, and Fun Aunt S.I.!! It will definitely be Miles' first circus and I think Drew's too. You can go an hour and half before the show starts and get to walk on the floor of the arena meeting clowns, riding elephants. Should be lots of crazy fun!

I'll leave you with some pics from the weekend.

Steph said....Yeah for the Circus.
We used Earth's Best Organic Formula. He may just need it for a growth spurt.

I'm not supplementing yet, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to. Have you tried the fenugreek? I think it works pretty well. They say you can take it for 6 weeks and then off for 3, but not everyone has to keep taking it after their supply is up cause it just stays up.

The circus sounds like fun!

Happy ICLW!

I supplemented with both of my kids. I had to use soy formula due to allergies with both of them, but the did pretty well. Took Zilla some time to get use to the nipple, but you shouldn't have a problem with that.

Have SO much fun at the circus! Can't wait to see pictures!

Aloria had to have formula at about 2 months, I couldn't keep up at all!!

KJ was on formula before he was a month due to me going to ICU for the pulmonary embolism and NOW you'd never know the difference!! LOL
