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.
