    I remember bananas being the first solid food of choice back in the day. A nice ripe one, mashed with a bit of breast milk. Don’t worry; just because a baby starts eating solids, it doesn’t mean he’ll stop wanting to nurse. Adults still drink fluids, right? And then there’s the comfort and bonding part of it.

    Have a great Yule!

    I remember being really worried/excited when we first started with solids. I would feel engorged by noon after missing two feedings but I was so happy to see my hubby so happy now that he could really take place in Gabriel’s feedings rather than just cooing over my shoulder. Nighttime feedings left me empty so I knew he was getting all his nutrients. The first food Gabe ever reached for was a giant chunk of venison. Now the boy gobbles his veggies before i can get the second scoop on his tray and if I so much as show him a bra strap he comes running from across the house. A happy breastfed baby is more adventurous with flavors, knows when they are full and knows how to get mommy’s bra unsnapped faster than mommy can. 😀
    Oh, and I’d really like to see a McGuyver episode with breastmilk. I totally think they should restart the series before I make my own.
    Merry Yule from the Sides house!
