It's not because she doesn't want to. Well, she wasn't exactly enamored with eating, but she didn't totally resist it either. Mostly, she was just really into that spoon thingy. Another thing to suck on and play with! She also could not get enough of sitting in the high chair like her big sissy.
No, Baby S has only eaten once for one sad, embarrassing reason: I'm lazy. Lazy, lazy mother.
Food takes time to prepare! Whereas breast milk, well, you know how easy that is- lift shirt up, unsnap bra, latch baby and done. Get a little sit-and-cuddle time. Breast feeding is easy and fast. Solid feeding takes time. Not to mention the dishes that get added to the pile in the kitchen that is always haunting the back of my mind (yes, it's currently niggling at me).
I know I'll get to it eventually. I'll get a regular schedule going and it won't seem so out of place. But for now, at least for today, I'm going to hold onto the exclusively breastfed thing. Six months went by way too fast.
