Colten's First Bottle

Austin's been begging to feed Colten since he was born. Since he's breastfed, we wanted to hold off on giving him a bottle until we thought he wouldn't have a problem going back and forth between bottle and breast.
So, I get a bottle ready, nurse Colten a bit to make sure he's not starving before giving him the bottle. I get Austin settled with the boppy and he started feeding Colten. About 2 minutes into the feeding, Austin announces he is done and to take Colten away. :-) I guess it took too much concentration to feed Colten AND watch his T.V. show!

So, Daddy ends up finishing the job.

Overall, he did great with the bottle. He drank well and nursed great the next time after taking the bottle. It will be nice to be able to leave him with Daddy for a bit and not worry about him being hungry while I'm gone.

Haha...that sounds just like Kaia wanting to feed Siri:-) After a minute or so the novelty wore off and I had to "move her now mommy" I love it:-)
