Happily, this does not end my special bond with JBB, it of course just changes it slightly. It is quite amazing how engaged and curious he is. He looks at every item that goes into our mouths now (sometimes it is a little disconcerting with both JBB and JourneyDog looking at me so intently when I am having something to eat!!) and we are certainly trying to make sure that we are setting a very good example with the foods that we are eating.
There are some things that I will not miss about breastfeeding - such as waking up in a pool of milk. Forgetting to wear breastpads and leaking through my shirt when out and about. The hours spent with a breastpump glued to my breast. I will miss JBB's little cheeky smiles when he looks up at me. I will miss be able to settle him with a little bit of breast milk (yes, I know that they say don't do that but 'they' sometimes drive me bananas!!).
A girlfriend said to me the other day that as soon as you get used to something with your baby, it all changes. I think that she's right.
