Oh how time flies! I cannot believe that little HD is already 2 months old!!! He is the best little guy out there. HD loves to smile at Michael and me. When Henry give us a little smile and giggles it is super cute. Like almost too cute. He babbles away at us joining the conversation whenever he can. Typically he is telling us that he is starting to get a bit hungry and that we should start to think about prepping a bottle for him. HD has started to get a bit more demanding, especially since I went back to work. He likes to be close to us, even if he is just in his bouncer. This is fine by me, I want to be close to him too.
Since I went back to work we have switched from exclusively breastfeeding to now giving him breast milk and formula. With all the struggles I have experienced with breastfeeding and the requirements of my job, it is just easier to put aside the guilt and add in formula. Finally I am healing and I am also not feeling the weight of guilt at not being able to pump enough to keep my hungry little boy satisfied. Now feeding him is relaxing instead of stressful. It was hard to satisfy him while I was at home all day, now that I am working it is even harder. I absolutely don't want all of my free time spent attached to a machine. Currently I am reducing my pumping sessions to 2-3 times a day so I can still give him breast milk but I can also socialise with Michael more often without my boobs being pumped!!!
