I caved...but not any more ;(

I wasn't quite ready to give up breastfeeding altogether so I had convinced myself that I could just breastfeed him once a day. It seemed like a good idea. But now I'm 99% certain that, as strange as it sounds, my milk bothers Evan's tummy. It's CRAZY to think that my own baby wouldn't be able to tolerate my milk, but I think that's the case. It's just too ironic that once I stopped giving him breastmilk altogether and started giving him soy, I could tell a huge difference in his gas/tummy issues. I don't know if it was something I was eating or what, but he acts so much happier now. I'm still kinda sad about having to give it up, but it's easier knowing his tummy is so much happier.
