With weaning fast approaching at a mere nineteen days away (yes I really am being that pedantic haha), in this month's Big Shop it was time to make the switch regarding Oliver's milk. I know strictly speaking 'Follow on' milk may not actually be necessary but it's got lots of nice extra iron and stuff in and, more importantly (!), I do not collect Boots card points on the 'From birth' milk due to the government legislation stuff (which also does not allow it to be a part of any deals or special offers). Given the amount spent on formula per month (by far enough to make me consider some serious perseverance with breastfeeding the next time around, as if I wasn't going to anyway!), I've been missing out on quite a lot of points :p
So here is our milestone photo for today - the big milk switch!!!
In other news, our swimming session today was a huge success - God bless the inventor of baby wetsuits is all I can say! Oliver stayed warm, happy and smily throughout the entire half hour session and it also eliminated the problem of a slippery baby in the water which I hadn't even thought of! Oliver seemingly is really a true water baby and I will definitely be looking into some swimming lessons for him as soon as we can afford it.
However, did I manage to do any training for my Swimathon? Did I heck....... :-s
