Decision day for Timmy

Timmy has a decision to make today. We found some soy formula that doesn’t give him hives, but he doesn’t like the taste. It inspired him this morning to work harder at nursing. So today Timmy needs to decide to either take naps and get his milk from Mama every few hours until the supply is built up again, or else he will need to drink the icky formula. Pumping isn’t producing enough to be able to keep him going on bottles of pumped milk. So if he’s going to pull it off, he needs to sleep well to keep up his strength, and he will need to nurse well. We need to get over this hump so that we can begin the “new normal”.
