Raees was on EBM for about a week before we introduced him to formula. I've always been afraid he would reject it, knowing how fussy he is.
So we started mixing the formula in EBM slowly and he drank it all without any complains!
I had to increase the amount of formula quicker than planned coz my supply became dangerously low and I was going outstation for a shoot.
Here's the EBM-formula division...
9 Jan 2012
4/5 breast milk + 1/5 formula
10 Jan 2012
1/2 breast milk + 1/2 formula
11 Jan 2012
1/3 breast milk + 2/3 formula
12 Jan 2012
1/6 breast milk + 5/6 formula
After this I expected him to be on full formula. As if knowing that he's about to be totally weaned off, he refused to drink altogether. He just pushed the bottle away without even tasting it. Probably a sign of protest.
He hasn't had a drop of milk for the last 48 hours. And I'm already on my way to Penang for work. So it's safe to say, Raees has totally weaned off now.
The last drop of breast milk he had was on 12 Jan 2012, in the afternoon while I was at work.
In total, Raees breastfed for 2 years, 4 months, 2 weeks and 4 days.
To celebrate this day, he got a much-needed hair cut :)
