From the Mouths of Babes….Breastfeeding According to an 8 yr. old Boy
This kid, the one that loves babies, is obsessed with holding his little brother.
Sometimes to the point of harassing me.
There was a mini-war-turned-formal-schedule over which sibling got to hold Judah during family devotions each night.
And if Mommy actually has to be nursing during the scheduled hold-Judah-night there is no lack of impatience.
Mommy, can I hold him?
Not yet, honey, he’s hungry and I need to feed him.
Mommy, is he done yet?
No honey, I can’t make him eat any faster.
Oh, now, Mommy, can I hold him?
No, honey I have to burp him and feed him on the other side….
and so it goes.
And after devotions that evening, he was pondering the “other side” of nursing.
Mommy, why does Judah have to eat on both sides?
Because they get full of milk and he needs to empty both sides.
Ohhhhh, soooo….its like two nerf guns that are loaded and once you finishing shooting one, then you have to shoot the other one.
