I’ve had a few wobbles but I am pleased to say I have made it to my 8 week breast-feeding milestone. I have set myself lots of little targets, one being no bottles until at least 8 weeks. I knew when I decided to breast feed that I would eventually start expressing some milk because I like my independence (a lot) and struggle to see the Hubby doing what he wants, when he wants whilst I’m stuck being dictated to by a boob monster. When I asked my breastfeeding friends to recommend a pump the majority all said that the best one they had tried had to be the Medela Swing Electric Breast Pump. When Medela asked me to review one for them I was delighted to receive it along with the Calma Solitaire teat.
This week Dot has started showing an interest in her surroundings. She has suddenly noticed the toys on her bouncer and one morning in her cot spent a good 10 minutes staring at a spiral toy that Spike had put on the drape rod for her. I decided it was about time to crack out the Sparkling Symphony Mobile (RRP £34.99) that Fisher Price sent us.
