I'm now tandem nursing, apparently, as per Lily's demands.
Future lactation consultant? "Positioning looks good, now let's work on that latch."
Examining tongue for possible tight frenulum.
Changing the diaper (hey, it even came with cloth).
The really funny thing? I have to back up a little here. Despite my referring to it as "nursie" or just "nurse" from day one, Lily insisted on inventing her own word for breastfeeding, which is not in any known language but basically sounds like "Boh-tee" or "Buh-tea". So random, right?
Well, one day, Aaron (her daddy) forwarded me this, which he had just come across and which completely weirded him out. Normally I don't pass these kinds of tired old "isn't extended breastfeeding freaksome" sketches along, for obvious reasons (tired, old), but here's the thing: listen to what he calls it.
And the name of her first doll, the baby version of the American Girl line, pictured here, that she got for Christmas? Bitty Baby.
