This was me and my husband last night. And many, many nights and naps before this. I am so thankful my husband is very supportive. My life would be so much different if he didn’t support my breastfeeding relationships with our children. I couldn’t imagine feeling pressure to stop from within my own home or feeling embarrassment or shame.
What is with my children and toilets? Do I need an indoor pool?? They seem to treat toilets in my house as mini splash pools or something. Every time I leave them together in the bedroom that has a toilet in there, this happens. Seriously.
Also, what is with their tongues?? Gross, kids. Gross.
I had to hose them off after this (well, put them in the bath) because they quickly decided to up this semi-peaceful toilet scene into something beyond my icky-ness threshhold. They decided eating freshly dipped toilet paper strips and throwing sopping wads at each other, the wall, floor, and splashing each other was the best thing in the world. I should have taken a quick video. Because it is NEVER happening again.
Until next week.
Does your child have a strange fascination with toilets too? Please share your stories and photos with me!
I just saw this nursing chart and had to share. I wish the file was a little bigger to appreciate the hilarious ones. Like nursing your child that is strapped into a car seat or the baby doing 360s on your chest. I also find it interesting that I don’t care that I can’t read it. And the mother has light green boobs and her baby is orange.
It is called “48 nursing positions” and is found here on Matome.naver.jp. Scroll down to the individual images and Japanese captions.
I love that nursing positions are not just the standard ones, like the cross cradle, football, and what-have-you. When babies are old enough to arrange themselves to get milk, things can get really interesting / hilarious!
They should have the “breastfeeding your baby while they’re on the changing table so they won’t scream while you’re doing a diaper change” position on there too.
The pounce is cracking me up. My baby is all about the pounce! She’ll just be playing, cruising around the bedroom, then crawl on the bed and pounce on me for a few seconds, then go back about her business. I feel like that red sugar container for hummingbirds.
