Beta - jaan looks so cute with his sunnies! He will be out of his sunbed in no time
There is no doubt in "most" cases bf is the best thing for baby - but this needs to be weighed up with the best interests of the mother (if she is on meds, suffering PND or a plethora of other reasons) and circumstances - including that she just doesn't want to!
It is such an individual choice that every mother should be able to make without fear mongering and or judgement from others. I respect everyone's choice - in my case I was determined to BF because I had a c - section - I was disappointed about not being able to birth naturally so felt BF was something I could do. My sister on the other hand chose from birth to bottle feed - was best for her, more convenient and meant that for her family - we were able to look after bubs more often in the early days :-)
Just a little update... They are taking out Karishma's drip today!! Yay!! She is still being fed by tube, however and she is not tolerating formula. Luckily I am expressing for her and keeping up the supply. Looks like she will be in the nursery for a few more days yet.
Beeanska - yay for drip coming out! Every little milestone in special care is worth a celebration I say
So nice to jump on and see everyone's gorgeous pics and great updates - all good news xxx
My belly at 30 wks 3 days sorry its not very clear but I don't have a full mirror lol and I tried to take it my self
Oh so jealous! You look great Meshell. Wish this baby would drop - even a little! I am SO uncomfortable it's not funny! She is so high up I can feel her move under and between my ribs!! Aarrgghh!! Not sure I can stand another few weeks of this! Might go crazy first. DH, bless him, said "don't worry, only a few more weeks to go"... Maybe I'm hormonal but I was like EASY FOR YOU TO SAY! Grrrr
