The end of the milk saga?

Today Goldie and I spent the day together. It started out great because her Nana and auntie and little cousin Kate came over and presented her with an adorable new Christmas outfit. Poor kid would never have anything new if it weren't for the kindness of family and friends. Sorry baby G, your mother is one cheap bastard.

We went to the LC and it appears that my milk supply is going well! The final decision was to breast feed all day and add rice cereal made with formula once a day. I can live with that.
I had a come to Jesus with myself about why I am so against formula. I am afraid she won't be smart. I don't know why I feel that way when I know MANY MANY smart babies and people who are brilliant and were bottle fed. Anyway, I will continue to breastfeed knowing that in a dire situation she won't starve and get over myself already. I so appreciate all of your kind words and advice. I think that we are going to be okay now.

She hates rice cereal by the way. By hates I mean she screams and spits milky ricey balls of fury at me whenever I get that nasty shit near her.

I plan to breastfeed and feel the same warped way about formula. Hell, I was brought up on formula and I'm super smart! :)

I have such strong feelings against formula also and can't exactly say why. It's weird. With that said, I may be doing a formula trial soon for my dear son depending on his GI results :(
