This week I’m grateful for bottles.
Not these types of bottles, although I do love what’s inside them.
This morning I am much more grateful for these types of bottles.
As I have three children under four years old, I have engaged in A LOT of breastfeeding in the past few years. In fact, I still am. Earlier this week, I thought Baby 3 would never let anything else pass her lips except for my nipples. I thought I was destined to only be away from said children in two hour increments, never to be alone for an afternoon for months, but this week she finally let my Husband feed her from a bottle. It was a great moment for me, a freeing moment. I nearly cried from sheer excitement. On the flip side, it was not such a good moment for Twiggy. It now means I will be able to go out and drink these…
… and then sleep in, while he has to get up and feed the baby. Hooray, for me, hooray for a Husband who will now be able to share the baby feeding load and hooray for bottles.

You’re freeeeeee!! Breastfeeding was a long slog (although, The Badoo didn’t breastfeed AT ALL so bottles were my best friends, she is still attached to them!). Enjoy a drink or three!! x
How great for you. I am lucky that Jack took to bottles from day one so whilst I breastfed we were able to mix it up. You will enjoy the re-found freedom!
Yay for you! Wonderful news. Have fun finding some new pretty coloured bottles to add to your collection. Kx
i love the Lucky beer bottles!
I hear you sister….
My son was nearly 3 when I finally weaned him – trust me, he wasn’t giving up by choice!
Enjoy the freedom.
There’s something really sad about saying goodbye to breastfeeding, with the first child. But afterwards, it’s like “YIPPEE”. Happy drinking from those (other) lovely bottles. xx
Ah, and now you can go out in public and not have to get nudie if you don’t feel like it! Let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t want to pull your top up…again.
There’s something quite liberating about getting a chance to finish your coffee by just chucking a bottle in their general direction! xxx
It’s so exciting to escape isn’t it! Good for you – and enjoy!
Yay for Baby Number 3 🙂
I had huge dramas with breastfeeding and had to get my little Miss onto bottles at a couple of months old, and after reading this & also having a close friend who is struggling with weaning her little one off the breast…I now realise how grateful for bottles I should’ve been 🙂
Enjoy those drinkies 🙂
I was quite sad that at first that breastfeeding didn’t work out for me but the freedom suited me down to the ground, and hubby loved the chance to feed little’un.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, glad you found me!
