Could this be the end?
Well, Reid is starting to wean himself from the bottle a bit. He is not really all that excited about it. He just wants solids when he is really hungry. We are working with putting the formula in a cup a bit more, which he is not totally crazy about. I am just wondering if this would be a good time to go ahead and work on changing him over slowly to whole milk. With Ellie, we waited until she hit her 1st birthday. Reid is close. He will be 11 months next week. If we are going to do this, I want to just bite the bullet and get this done before palate surgery. Reid takes 3 bottles a day...maybe. I am thinking that this would be a nice time, since he is not terribly interested, to begin switching over. I gave him 2 ozs. of whole milk mixed in with his formlua today to begin the switch. Have I serioulsy bought my last container of formula? Could it be? Any tricks out there cleft families on switching over? Is this bad to do before palate surgery or helpful? He has to be off the Haberman before surgery day. So....I think I am going to try this and see if we can actually be done with the bottle in the next week or so. He is very excited about yogurt now and is also enjoying cheese and bites of bread. Have we actually turned the corner??? Wow....more updates soon. Wish me luck!
