In the immortal words of Socrates, "I ate what?"

Our Doodlebug, is back on cereal...woohoo! He had to take a break from solid food because something was making his tummy upset. This is good because he's drinking me dry and I can barely keep up it seems. I do have frozen reserves but I've been tapping into them lately which has me concerned. My goal is to continue to pump so that he has breast milk for 9 months, which will fall right around Thanksgiving. I really do not want to be carrying my pump around or pumping for that matter at Christmas time when we go to Kentucky. We'll have plenty to carry on the Doodlebug's first big trip.

Anyways, here Pierce is while eating his cereal. We have to hold his hands at times because they go straight into his mouth and he makes a huge mess. He doesn't seem to mind as long as the food keeps coming!

I've been having to dip into my reserves, too. I hate it. I have a feeling that my tap is about to go dry!
Congrats that he's back on the cereal. Ever figure out what was making him sick?

I'm not sure what made his tummy upset. We are thinking that it might have been the sweet potatoes, but honestly cannot say for sure. When we reintroduce them we'll know for sure I guess.

As for your milk supply, I have found that it has significantly increased by continuing my prenatal vitamins, eating lots of protein and drinking lots of fluids.
