Biting. And whatnot.

Topic : Breastfeeding

Guess who has 7 (!!!!) teeth now?!

C to the B to the J.

Clearly there not all out totally but I can tell you they are there…and they are sharp.

bottom teeth out and proud


How do I know they are sharp?

Cause she’s taken to biting me if she’s not happy with the nursing situation.


Now I’m sure she’s not gleeful about it like this…

Woo! Woo!

I actually think her attitude about it is more like this…


There’s some attitude involved with it.

And I’m working with it, we keep going but I tell you what, all this growing up brings more than one would expect.

I have no tips on how to have your kid not bite you, I do what I can and say “no” very loudly.

It’s getting better so if you have a kid that has teeth (or will), just keep going cause we are all hopeful it’s a phase…not a lifestyle choice!

I swear this blog isn’t going to be about my boobs but since breast feeding IS what I do several times a day it’s gonna come up.
And the biting is new and has made quite an impact on the nursing sessions I have been very used to.
And the sessions are still sweet but when you’re playing defense sometimes, it’s hard to relax, ya know!?

Ehh…I guess teeth are part of the gig.


In non-boob related news, CBJ is crawling!!

She started about 2 weeks ago with the sit and roll forward and then push up to kind of an army crawl to now hands and knees and go, go, go!

So now it’s what I call “baby wrangling” around here.

And it is super cute when I leave a room, she crawls after me! (almost makes up for the biting…almost).

All joking aside, it’s been a big adjustment and I’m now realizing how much crap we have all over that she can now get into…and that I really need to swiffer more often!

Other whatnot….

We did some pool time which she was into.

CBJ, mom, realizing you only have two piece swimsuits….yikes.

And for Father’s Day I put her into her Arkansas Dress for dear old dad. 😉

woo pig!

Next week CBJ will be 9 months old.
Are you kidding.
Kinda handling it o.k..
Did you know I’m not great with change?
You didn’t know?
Oh good.
I’ll be sharing some thoughts soon.

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
