I am just weeks away from Maddie being on cow's milk fulltime. I have been much more emotional about it than I thought I would. It is crazy that I have been breastfeedng/pumping 23 of the last 36 months. I have to say a HUGE thank you to my mom for doing the same for my sister and I! Until you have been there done that you have no idea the time and effort it takes. It truly is like having a part-time job on the side. I wouldn't think twice about it though for health and bonding reasons. I love my babies so much and I have already seen the benefits!
On a side note, it costs on average $1500-$2000 to formula feed a baby for a year. Thats right I saved $4,000. As Clayton would say, "Do I get a prize?" :)
