Guess what we did tonight? MrZ fed NikkiZ her first little bit of cereal. MrZ told me he read the box and it said 1 Tbsp of cereal for 4 or 5 ounces of boob milk and I about cried right there. “I can’t pump that much tonight, she won’t get to have any until tomorrow.” I was so sad thinking that my daughter was never going to get to try cereal since I am such a deficient pumper.
Then I found out my husband can’t read. 1 tbsp of cereal for 4-5 tbsps of boob milk. This was MUCH more feasible so we went to TOWN. She did okay, I guess. It’s pretty much just grainy milk we were feeding her, so its hard to tell how much she got (if any) since so much of it just poured out of her mouth the second it went in. Either way – she loved the spoon, and really, that’s all that matters.
We decided to go ahead and introduce her to cereal since she has gone from waking up ONCE a night back to THREE times a night and this is KILLING ME. I have no idea if the cereal will make a difference in her sleep patterns, but it will at least make me feel like I’m doing SOMETHING proactive about my exhaustion. Besides drugging her. Which I’m not against.
