Manic Monday #8

Mo created this fantastic word for today's Manic Monday : formula.

My first thoughts go to baby formula. When I had my first daughter she breastfed until about 5 1/2 months. Then she nursed but she also drank formula. By the time she was 7 months old she was strictly formula fed. Now my second daughter was completely different. She was strictly breastfed until she was a year old. She refused anything in a bottle even breast milk. I had received a bunch of cans of formula for her for free and most of it went to waste because every time the bottle went near her she violently gagged and it came out her nose. She also refused to drink any type of milk once she stopped breastfeeding at a year. She is now 19 months old and has officially begun drinking milk as of 2 weeks ago. I don't know what changed for her, but the next time we visit the doctor and he asks his usual questions of "does she drink at least 2 cups of milk a day?" I don't have to give him the speech about how she doesn't but I feed her plenty of dairy and leave his office in dismay.

Glad to hear your daughter is drinking milk. I personally don't like milk. Have to force myself to drink it. But I have other diary products to help! Take Care!!
