Start solids. Check.
Weaning from breastmilk. Check (but sorta sad about it).
I started to incorporate a bottle of formula into her daily schedule this week. AND of course I have mixed feelings about the whole thing...
On one hand I'm excited to start feeling "normal" again, reclaiming my body and start feeling like a woman again (as opposed to a cow). On the other hand, I feel guilty about cutting Emma off of the "good stuff". Plus, at the moment she's been giving me the biggest grins during our breastfeeding sessions - I wish I could capture it and show you guys, it seriously is heart-meltingly priceless. I know it's silly coz I'm sure I'll find other ways to "bond" but I guess it's the idea of losing those precious moments, where you look down and feel like you're all that exists in her tiny world.
I'm not really sure when I'll stop for good. It's funny coz I just realized that the weaning period is more for me than for her.
