Why is it difficult?

Ok so before you go any further this is a woman-ly post. Well to be correct a woman-ly and mother-ly post...

Go back now if you are not prepared...

Ok, well why is nursing such a difficult thing? It is excruciatingly emotional to start. Once you get the hang of it then it is very easy. Then your baby decides it is time to wean. Yes that is right, not really my choice but S's. She would rather sit holding her own bottle than take the time to nurse. Which is fine because I had all kinds of stereotypical thoughts about nursing from the beginning. I didn't want to if the baby: got teeth, could walk for it or could ask for it. Well 1 out of 3 is the beginning. What can you do? So we made it 9 months without having to buy more than 1 can of formula! And we made it 8 months before we opened that one can!

She doesn't mind at all having a bottle or formula. So of course the emotional side gets left on Mom. Not to mention the kind of painful side. I guess I can take it pretty soon she will be on regular milk and real food!
