so last nite was our "trial run" to see if i can leave millie at my parents and go out next weekend. millie stayed in my parents' room with my mum (my dads away atm) she was armed with a dummy and a bottle and some formula. i slept in the guest room and to my surprise, millie was fine! she woke a few times but my mum could settle her! the only downside was my milk supply- i woke at 5.30am in agony with massive, rock-hard porn-star boobs! as millie had had fruit and rusk with baby rice for dinner and then formula milk at nite, i hadnt used my boobs for like 17 hours. in the end i had to go get millie and get her to feed both sides just to take the edge off, and she slept with me in bed til 9.30am!!! normally she's up for the day at 7am! re. formula: she had a carton of sma gold at bedtime and drank 80mls (my mum said she tried to "knead" the bottle with her fingers like she does on my breast- BLESS!) and thru the nite had about 180mls from another carton of the same milk. and so far no tummy upsets or skin rashes- so its all good- think i might put her on that milk when i switch her over, altho iv not tried them all yet. so i just need a solution for the engorgement problem. might post in feeding about it. anyway yay!
