I mean all people want to do what they want, when they want but Cordelia wants it more than the average person. Remember how she refused to take a bottle for months and then weaned herself and seemingly overnight decided to take a bottle of formula? Well, now it looks like she's weaning herself off formula.
|Get me a cup of Coke!|
For the past 3 weeks, she has been reducing the amount she takes at every feeding. At first I thought it was teething or maybe she was getting sick. She has transitioned herself from 8oz bottles 4 times a day to drinking 4-5oz and eating more at meals. All of this boggles my mind because I had to be the leader for all of this stuff with Faith, but Cordelia must have an instruction book hidden somewhere.
|I know how to Google!|
This process isn't as seamless as it may sound. Because it's baby led, it's really inconsistent. On any given day, I have no idea what she wants. Some times she refuses a whole feed and other times she yells at me when the bottle is empty because she wanted more.
Don't even get me started on how confusing things are at night. Some nights she has been sleeping for long periods of time with no snack breaks and other nights she's up SCREAMING about being parched and hungry. She's lucky that she's cute during the day and offers calf massages free of charge.
|Mommy, you need to learn to shave better|
Owning a dog is so much easier than raising a tiny person. All the dog wants to be happy is some kibble in her bowl twice a day (the same amount every time is fine!) and a window sill for leaning and stalking the neighbors.
|I'm waiting for my real family to come pick me up|
Have you ever dealt with self weaning before a year old? She's only 2 weeks shy of a year so I guess this a good thing.
Do you ever just wake up one day and hate a food you used to love? That's totally me. I go through such strong food phases. It's no wonder my kid is like this, it's karma.
