Re: so nervious to start
I know exactly how you feel. It's been very hard for me (full time working mum, with a SaH Dad) when I realised after her first spoon that we had started down the road where she wouldn't need me anymore.
But she loves her solids now. (Apart from fruit and anything too sweet, odd...) And she uses night time nursing and breastfeeding in the evenings to reconnect with me after a day at work.
I am still intimidated to continue (now starting with meat) now, but small steps will do... I hope it all goes well for you and your little one.
I think that this just needs a lot of patience and working together.
We only had one moment in all the stretches of eternity,
one place to make our own,
one word to speak, cherish and hold,
one second to lose ourselves completely,
within us, each other and the world.
This is love.
