The Food Experiment Continues + A Sigh of Relief

hhWe continue to give Henry new food to try, and I can’t help but snap photos of the hilarious faces he makes.  It sometimes appears he hates it, but then he keeps eating it so I assume he likes it.

The photo above is a great example of the stages of faces we see when he eats.  In this case, he is eating a yellow bell pepper.

I have to be honest in saying that ever since we started feeding him fruit pouches and finger food, in addition to breastmilk, I’ve felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.  Even though I absolutely love breastfeeding and cherish the moments we spend together doing it, having the pressure of being the only food provider brings a lot of stress.  Especially now that I am a working momma, and I send him to the nanny with a few ounces of milk for the day because that is all I could manage to pump in between his on-demand nursing sessions.  I love knowing that we can feed him actual food in the event I’m not able to provide a nursing session/bottle of expressed milk.
