The time is fast approaching to start my little baby girl on solids and while a big part of me is looking forward to experiencing this first with her, there is another part of me feeling a little sad. You see up until now I’ve been her sole source of nutrition, the one stop party shop if you will (and there has been plenty of late night parties at buffet) and now I’ll have to make room for another player! I’ve single handily helped all her little fat folds form. I’m talking about all those little pieces of pudge from each side of her cheeky smile right down to her toes, I’m claiming responsibility for them all!
I’m extremely grateful and proud of our breastfeeding journey so far! We did hit a few bumps along the way but nothing that an amazing lactation consultant (Boobing Godmother) couldn’t help with! That and some other amazing July 2016 Mammies! The best advice I got was ‘never give up on a bad day’ and I don’t see either of us giving up any time soon!
