Yes, finally, my boys have started to take a bottle again. I’ve been exclusively breastfeeding, haven’t introduced food yet, for 6+ months. Four months ago, my TWINS started to refuse bottles, any bottles (we tried all brands and nipples), whether it be breastmilk or formula. Amazing how they both became “as stubborn as a mule” at the same time!
It’s been hard, really hard, to breastfeed two babies, back to back, every 1 ½ to 2 hours, 10x a day, while also still caring for a toddler. Yes 10x a day because starting 3+ months ago, they stopped sleeping through the night.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally ecstatic that I’ve been successful with breastfeeding my boys, but I welcome the feeding break!
I’m also having a glass of wine, as I write this, because the boys have had a bottle. Oh yeah!!!
