    Default Approval is always nice

    So I taught Gavin to sign for milk when I realized that he habitually asked by asking me to pick him up and then smashing his head into my face or chest, whichever he hit first. Ouch. This was a few months ago.

    Lately I've been putting a few limits on how he nurses...

    At the IL's this evening Gavin takes a tantrum over something. Then when I pick him up he grabs my shirt and pulls it open trying to help himself. Not in a cute way either. In a demanding - I'm running the show manner. So I said uh uh not like that you don't. And I put him down.

    Instead of signing he ran off and played with something.

    After supper (so a couple of hours later). MIL asks me "so... are you weaning him or were you asking for communication?"

    I told her communication. That he knows how to sign for it and that I don't let him manhandle me to get at it.

    She smiled and I think I saw a sigh of relief!

    It's always nice to have people on your side. (Especially when it's your MIL!)

    Yes it is! And learning & growing with our babies on the BF journey is really wonderful, too!

    She was/is a bit of a hippy and from what I gather was a big promoter of breastfeeding when she had the boys too.
