In an effort to help my son sleep longer (he woke three times last night!!!) I was trying to stuff him full of milk at 7 pm tonight. All that achieved was an overfull tummy. I sat him up to burp him, he looked at me as if to say he didn’t feel very good, gagged and spewed probably 200 mls of milk all over me. So instead of going to bed with a tummy pleasantly full enough to help him sleep at least 8 hours, he went to bed with a practically empty tummy and I’ll probably have to get him up before I go to bed to give him another feed.
Whenever my babies have spewed a lot of milk I get the same feeling as when I have to throw food away because I’ve forgotten it was in the fridge and it went past it’s use by date. I think to myself “What a waste.”
Oh well, I’ll make more.
