Mystery Solved!!!

Paisley took two bottles today!!!  Yes, you read that right.  After a million different tries and absolutely no success, we figured it out.

Up until today, I've pumped and then made her bottle with that milk.  Well, apparently she likes her milk a little warmer if she's going to take it by bottle.

SILLY ME!!!  Someone call DHS, because I obviously have no idea what I'm doing here!  :)

Today, my mom took from my frozen stash to make her bottle and she took it like a champ.  NO problem at all.  So all we can figure is that she likes it a little warmer than normal when it's in bottle form.  Problem solved.  Aaron and I just got home from seeing a movie and she stayed home with my mom.  It was actually pretty great to get away for a minute and then I was SO excited to see her when we were headed home...


  1. This made me laugh. I know it has been frustrating for you. So glad to see little Paisley helping out momma. Now maybe she can come hang out with us for a little bit too while ya'll go out :)

  2. Yay! Yay! Yay! What a relief - for both of you!

  3. Breast and bottle - you are living the dream!

  4. Does this mean she is ready for Aunt Shalyn to babysit?

  5. YAY! I'm SO glad you figured it out! That must be such a relief!

  6. What a great relief!! SO glad she's taking that bottle like a good girl!
