    Alasdair woke up this morning and when I tried to put him on the boob he didn't want it. He flat out refused. I'm not too upset, when I made the decision to mix feed, I knew it'd happen one day. We've managed to mix feed for about 2 and a half months after we failed at the whole exclusive thing. I feel like we've done well. I'm going to try again with number 2 whenever number 2 comes along but I've decided that I've given him as much as we could both manage and now total formula is the way forward :)

    update: I spoke to my aunt (health visitor) and she says it's actually really common for babies of around 3 months to not want to breastfeed and that I might find that in a week he'll want to go back on. I've decided to express to keep my supply up just incase.

    Well it sounds like you've been doing a great job. I'm sure it must be sad that he's made up his mind, but like you said he might change his mind as well. x

    Guess who's just gone back on the boob!!! :happydance:

    He didn't feed for long but that's probably because he's not due a feed (if he was going to have a bottle) til 11:30. Going to try him again later :) I didn't realise how much I wanted him to do it until he stopped doing it.

    I've been breastfeeding him before each bottle feed...but I don't exactly know what I'm intending to do. I really ought to stop messing around with his feeding.
