I watch how my ego could easily get hurt by this… but I have nothing to offer him at this point. His happy place is smushed up against Mom’s boob… which used to be MY happy place…so he and I are going to have to work out a “joint custody” or “time share” agreement, eventually. Feeding or not… he’s officially a tit man.
New action plan for me: forget trying to impress baby with my awesome daddy skills (that I’ve been studying) and work on tending to Mommy’s needs. I think she likes me better anyhow.
Colostrum aids in pain management for the baby. So after being cramped up for 10 months AND upside down for part of that time, babies are typically nauseous and achy. So the boob produces colostrum like a drug to stop pain.
Moms are the drug dealers and babies are junkies.
