So my little sis recently ran the Twin Cities Marathon. I’m just going to let that sink in for a minute. I mean… that’s a BIG DEAL. I’m so proud of her and she is seriously making me think about doing one as well. Has anyone else here run a marathon? Did you love it?
Alright. I need to have a mom moment for a little bit… mostly because I need emotional support.
Kit has started biting me while she’s breastfeeding. *OUCH!* The first time she did it was at the Marathon when we were watching Becky run and she only did it once. I thought maybe it was just a fluke. Well it wasn’t.
The next two times she ate she bit me multiple times. It HURTS! I thought other moms were being dramatic when they said how much it hurts, but no. Not dramatic at all!
So by the next morning I was a nervous wreck about feeding her and I think that caused me to overreact. Sure enough she bit me again, but this time I was so on edge that I jumped and cried out in pain… and scared the poor thing. I felt terrible because she wouldn’t eat after that. I mean, it was kind of heartbreaking because she would get close, but then pull away and shake her head no while crying really hard. I felt like the world’s worst mother.
She did that for two feedings, but then FINALLY started breastfeeding again. The problem is that now every time she eats, I’m SO TENSE because I’m terrified she’s going to do it again! I’m kind of thinking that this may be the beginning of the end?
It’s funny, because I’ve thought before that I would be happy to be done with breastfeeding because it will give us more flexibility and freedom, but now I keep crying on an off because I’m so sad that we may be done soon.
All. Of. The. Emotions.
I guess we’ll see where the next few weeks lead us, but why is she growing up so fast??? I’m not ready!
Did anyone else go through that with their little ones? Do you have any tricks for “guaranteeing” that they won’t bite? If so, help a mama out and let me know in the comments below!
Until next time,
