I hear you, loud and clear!

Little Gabriel has been growing like a weed! In addition to eating "big people food", he's also jabbering like crazy (Dadadadada! Mamamama! Rarararara! I'm not sure where the last one came from!), and has started army crawling (though he doesn't get too far)!
So of course, I am feeling like my little tiny baby isn't little at all anymore. In an effort to feel a connection to what used to be, I thought a few days ago that it would be a good idea to try nursing again. (Keep in mind, it's been around two months since I gave up trying to get him to nurse, and about 3.5 months since his refusal first began and I became an exclusive pumper.)
Well... let's just say he got his point across! My darling little angel first turned his head away, and when I continued to offer he looked up at me, leaned in real close, and bit me!
OUCH! He has teeth! So I'm really done this time. Done. Done. DONE!
I have a new found respect for my pump now. At least it doesn't bite.
I hear you, Gabriel, loud and clear. I promise to only offer mommy milk in a bottle from now on.
This post is part of the Breastfeeding Blog Hop. This week's topic is pumping. Take a peek at some of the other posts below, and share some BFing love!!


  1. Ouch! That sure does seem like a way to say no!! Found you from LBS Tea Party!

  2. Yikes! Naomi doesn't have any teeth yet, but she has bitten me recently. She hasn't had a bottle in a while now, probably several months. I'm not sure she would take one now. When she bit, I just took the breast away completely for the feeding. She hasn't tried it again yet, but I know she will!

  3. lol. I know I shouldn't laugh, but it is kind of funny :)

  4. Shelley,
    I hope you are able to teach Naomi not to bite before she has teeth. That was a whole new experience in pain! That's not a place you want broken skin- yikes!!

  5. Jen,
    It's funny now. It was NOT at the time!!! Just another example of how headstrong this babe of mine is.
