I am anticipating teeth, cause she loves food so much. She loves to chew her food, even without teeth, munching away with those gums. I give her little bits of pasta or rice through her pureed food, and she loves it, she gets the biggest smile, new textures, new tastes.
It saddens me to say Georgi is weaning herself off the breast. I had dropped a couple feeds during the day a few weeks back, she seemed disinterested, and much more keen on sitting up playing, or looking around. She would whinge when i put her in a cradle hold to feed her, she hates this hold at the best of times. She started feeding sitting up, this was uncomfortable for me, but meh she was happy. I never thought that i produced enough milk in the first place, besides what all the "expert" breastfeeding nurses and mid wives said.
I was more than happy to drop the during the day feeds, it made getting out and about during the day, much easier and lots of fun. I take her homemade food with me, and we have lunch out and about. Georgi loves to people watch, it is the cutest thing to see.
G loved her evening feed. She has a whole routine we stick to like glue. Play time, bath, boob + bottle (I know, she loves her food) then bed.
What used to take Georgi an hour, hour and a half for feeding, now takes a few minutes.
I loved the night feeding the most. We got to snuggle before bed time, she was so happy and sleepy on the bf, the bottle acted as a top up.
Seems like she is now done with the night feeds too :( A few night's ago, I tried to put her in the cradle hold to feed her, she just whinged, and wanted to sit up. So i tried to sit her up and feed her, but nope, not interested.
Seems like my baby girl is growing up, moving on to big girl food only. She doesn't need her mummy's food anymore. I am so teary about this. I know I should be happy, we are moving into a new phase of her new life, but I still haven't had enough time to get my head around it.
I will need to learn to keep up, with this little ball of sunshine. I think I'm the luckiest mother on earth to be blessed with such a gorgeous, easy going, intelligent and determined little girl.
