Nipples and Nipples

Ah, the wonders of baby formula. Abby and mom are both doing great and getting stronger each day. So far the biggest revelation to us has been the combination of breastfeeding and using baby formula. Abby is eating like a champion, to the point Cindy was having a hard time keeping up. Some feeding sessions were lasting more than an hour and became very tiresome on both Cindy and Abby. Now she is breastfeeding for about 30 minutes and taking 2 ounces of formula. This change has allowed both Cindy and Abby to rest longer and be more relaxed when awake.
