Piggy Boy

So I confess, I rock Colby to sleep while giving him his night time bottle.  I know I'm making him dependent on the rocking and bottle, but I looooveeeee the time I spend with him.  So, I'm okay with that.

But I digress... every night I give him a 4oz bottle.  Most nights he conks out around the end of the bottle, but then wakes up 10-15 minutes later to be topped off by a little more.  We prepare our formula in 2oz increments in the morning so we can easily warm up 2oz bottles as we need them, so when he needs to be topped off I end up heating up an additional 2oz only to have him fall asleep .5oz in later.  

Anyways, so, tonight I thought I'd be smart.  I decided to heat up 6oz all at once.  I knew I was running the risk of wasting 2+oz, but I was okay with that.  

So... we're rocking and he's eating and he's getting sleepy.  And next thing I noticed?  He finished ALL 6oz in just minutes!!!  :)  My little piggy boy!  :)

He woke up 15 minutes later, but I didn't give him anymore food because that would just have been ridiculous!  :)

Hey, my opinion: You cannot spoil your little guy at this point. In fact, you're doing exactly the right thing, rocking, loving, holding, and cuddling him to sleep. Babies need that; there's tons of time to make him all independent, tough, and self-reliant when he's older. :) You've been through so much together, so shower Colby with love.

What a cutie! And a good eater, indeed.
