11 months old

We had a breakthrough of sorts on the day Nolan reached his 11 month mark.
He drank formula.
Straight.
From a sippy cup.
While I was sitting right next to him.

I have been trying to wean him during the day, as a transition to milk and for my sanity. . . (pumping at work was about to kill me off) He was being a little pill about drinking the formula. He'd rather go without, even when he was home with Tamera.

But Tuesday, she said he drank quite a bit, so I thought I'd try. . .

And he drank 2 full bottles.

And that's giving me a pretty awesome sense of freedom. . . even if he's still a mama's boy morning and night. . .

Isn't it FANTASTIC when you get a breakthrough?!! I'm still on a high about Isabel sleeping better, so I'm glad I have a breakthrough buddy. We can celebrate together!

Hooray for your breakthrough! I'll tell you, I weaned at 9 months (milk pretty much dried up) and I wasn't sad about it one little bit, and neither was Maren really. It was such a relief!

I feel so FREEE without my pump...so FREEEEEE...

Congrats on the sippy! That is great news. We were pretty happy that lazy Mr. Max decided that it is now ok for him to hold his bottles....seriously....he could do it, just refused to! The sippy is great for little sips right now...I hope we can get him to start drinking with it soon though!

I'm with Stefanie. I felt so free after I stopped pumping. I'm impressed you made it this long. I only pumped for about a month with Clara because I hated it. With Collin I didn't even try. Both of them were about 5 months old when I went back to work so I felt pretty good I breastfed that long anyway.

I gotta try that... Noah take a bottle fine, and a water sippy fine... just haven't combined the two experiences yet.

And cool digital frames, by the way. *smile*
