When I say all set, I mean that I had Emmanuel boil the water and I mixed a bottle of formula. What made me change my mind? I tasted it. It tastes nothing like breastmilk and I don't want him to get used to and prefer the formula because I am not ready to give up breastfeeding. So we persevered and it looks like we've come through it relatively unscathed!
And as a cute milestone. Nico actually recognized me for the first time last night. Emmanuel had changed him and was trying to distract him while I went to the washroom. When I came back he was staring at Emmanuel calmly. As soon as I came over, his head shot over to where I was and his eyes lit up and he made his happy noise! No smile yet, but it's coming I know it!!!
