This is not how I imagined our breastfeeding journey with Lana. Breastmilk is best for babies, it is readily available, always the right temperature and free.
Lana has been fed breastmilk from the beginning through a tube and then later from a bottle. Now she has to have special formula that is prescribed to her.
Formula feeding sucks, especially because I am still expressing every 4 hours to give her the best chance to be able to breastfeed at a later stage.
We got her some lovely glass bottles, as I don't want her to drink from plastic when we can.
However there is a huge plastic footprint of my milk expressing. It is not possible to keep this big amount of milk in glass jars and make sure they are sterilised. Or I'm sure in theory it is possible, but when you don't get to sleep more than two hours in one go then convenience comes in as a big player in every activity in your life.
Here's to this journey getting easier by the day!! #breastfeeding #exclusivlypumping #exclusivlyexpressing #breastmilk #nuk #nukbottles #toomuchplastic
