Last night, for the first time ever, Jack favored solid food over nursing! He had only been nursing for about 5 minutes after I got home from work when Joe pulled out the Pirate’s Booty…Jack yanked my shirt down, said bye-bye, and ran to beg for some snacks. I was shocked! Cheese puffs favored over breastmilk? He got a few while I prepared a more wholesome dinner.
Then, this morning, I was running late to catch my bus and Jack woke up before I got out the door. He decided he wanted to take his sweet time at my breast (even taking the second side!). “Joe, get the yogurt raisins,” I requested. As soon as Jack saw the package, he flew off my lap, nursing forgotten.
Not only that, but he drank a significant amount of cow’s milk at daycare yesterday. This is the first time he has taken milk of any type while away from me in months. Could an end to breastfeeding be in sight?
