Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding and Gradual Weaning: A Snapshot in Time


Three-year-old: Waaaaaaa! I need uppy [being picked up] and nursing!
Purple fleece pants

Me: Ugh, I have to get the seven-year-old ready for school. I think you might be verrrrry hungry since you haven't eaten breakfast yet. Here, have a peach.

Her: Oh yeah! SO hungry. [Sigh. Eats peach.]

Ten minutes later.

Her: Waaaaaaaa! I need uppy and nursing!!

Me: Ugh. I was planning to try to do stuff, and things. So many things. Oh, I know what it is. You're super hot in those fleece-lined winter pants you picked out. How about we help you find something cooler to wear?

Her: Oh, yeah! I'm SO hot!!

After changing clothes.

Her: I need uppy and nursing!!!

Me: To deal with the aftermath of having felt so hot.

Her. Yeah.

Me: [Sigh] Ok.
