Paradigm shift

The second month on solids saw a paradigm shift of seismic proportions. A few weeks before the super-duper hospital grade double electric pump was due to be returned to Medela, I decided to start drinking straight from the tap. I suppose seven and a half months of pumping 6-8 times a day was an  adequate demonstration of maternal devotion. I guess there are not that many babies who learnt how to eat breadsticks before learning how to latch on.

New foods at this stage :

- apricots, dates, plums, tomatoes
- butternut squash, daikon (Japanese radish)
- sparkling mineral water (drunk from Papa's mug)
- Greek yogurt, buffalo mozzarella, Parmesan, tofu, salmon, poppyseeds
- very tiny tasting portions of hash browns, the cream filling of a belgian chocolate eclair
- toilet paper

Food rejected: rice porridge with chicken, organic Red Gem lettuce
