World's worst mom award

....right here, give it to me. So we are still supplementing during the night since my supply is so low around then Jack gets pissed and is starving. Before bed, I will put 4 bottles out on the counter in our master bath with premeasured powder in them so when I wake up and need to feed him, I just pour in the water and mix, it makes it super easy for us. Last night I woke up for his second feeding around 4ish dead tired, we had only slept like 4 hours the night before and I honestly can't remember the last time I had felt so exhausted. Jackson's crying because he's hungry and DH woke up to hold him while I made a bottle. I pick up one of the bottles, pour in the water, shake it up and hand it to DH so he can start feeding him so I can potty. Well I come back out, and wash my hands and look at the counter where I keep the bottles and notice 3 bottles with powder in them. He had already eaten once around midnight so there should have only been 2 bottles with powder in them, one dirty bottle from the last feeding and the bottle Jack was eating from at that moment....you can see where this is going...

I FREAKING POURED WATER INTO THE DIRTY BOTTLE AND GAVE IT TO HIM! I ran over and grabbed it from DH and Jack had eaten like an ounce and a half of it my poor baby! DH didn't notice it because it was so dark in the room...ugh! That's my confession, now hand over my award!

Oh hun I can only imagine how much it sucks to be that tired. HOWEVER I do not think you're a bad mother at all. And when you think about it (probably one day in the future when you're not so tired anymore) its kinda funny...
Keep Smiling chick remember that you're doing a great job!

eh... doesn't sound so bad to me. It could have been worse... you could have filled it with something other than water. If a dirty bottle is as bad as it's gotten - you're doing pretty good mama!

I think you're doing a great job Amy! Trust me, I've heard of much worse. But I can understand you're angst. Get some rest and you'll see Jackson is just fine. ((hugs))
