She did it!!

Ava had her 6 month checkup last week and we learned that she had lost an ounce since her four month appointment. It is not too big of a deal considering how chubby she was and still is. The doctor says that she does need to gain weight though so I need to try and get her to take a bottle after I nurse her. Ava has always hated the bottle and especially hated formula. My mom came over the other day to help me give her a bottle and she was here for seven hours and Ava was starving but wouldn't take a bottle. Well that night she took a bottle of my milk from me, yesterday she took a bottle with sugared formula, and today I gave her another bottle with a little less sugar and she took it!! She only drinks about 1.5 oz. but that is good enough for me. It is so funny how things like this make me so proud of her!!

I hear ya! What is up with these little girls. I have to give Annie formula too. But it took a lot of convincing, she only drinks about an ounce. Good luck, has she started eating solids? That helps.
