The rush of the first few days is over now and we are taking control back to our hands. Today we decided that breastfeeding is the best option for Max. Switching from the milk in the bottle is tough even after a couple of days. It is like switching from free high speed unlimited Internet connection to a crappy and expensive dial-up. But what needs to be done has to be done.
Max knowledge of easily available food from the bottle is not the only problem at this moment. Probably a bigger problem is Olga’s and mine total lack of experience with breastfeeding (except for being a baby, which doesn’t count). It turns out that for the milk to come, baby has to suck the breast for clear the milk channels. Sucking the tit is hard. Sucking the tit without milk is a total no-fun.
Less slip, less food, hard work, and stress all over the place – now this sounds pretty much like a real world. Welcome Max! ;)
