breastfeeding

Monday, Oct. 28, 2002
This morning on the radio on the way to work there was a news story…

“woman is told to stop breastfeeding in library because there is no food or drink allowed in the library”

Bucky looked over at me and said, “Mommy what is breastfeeding?”

me “well….that means that a mother is allowing her baby to feed from her breast. When you have a baby your breasts fill with milk so you can provide nutrition to your child. Remember how Nikki fed her puppies?”

Bucky (alarmed look on face) “Yes.”

*pause*

Bucky “can boys feed babies too?”

me “no, they can’t. God made woman to have baby’s and provide for them nutritionally.”

Bucky “I had a bottle though, I saw it in lots of pictures.”

me “yes you had a bottle, I couldn’t breastfeed you because you had to stay in the hospital for a week because you were sick, remember?”

Bucky “I’m glad I was sick!”

*joint laughter*

*long pause*

Bucky “so all girls have to carry all that milk around?”

me “no only women that just had a baby”

*pause*

Bucky “are all cows girls having baby cows?”

Tomorrow I’m going to put my Replacements CD on. Once the questions start…you’re in trouble. lol On second thought, no I’m not. I love talking to my kid more than I like to do anything else in life. BTW..that librarian is messed up.
