DS is also 6 mo. (today!) and nursing him is insane now! I took for granted the days when I didn't have to miss out on things just because he needs to eat. Now I have to go to a dark, completely quiet room with no toys in it. (does this room exist??) The thing I am missing is the opportunity to show people that it's normal to bf. It is a foreign concept to my family, since I'm the first one to try. I think now they think it's weird since I have to leave to do it. It sure makes the advocacy thing hard!
Also, it draws more attention to the fact that he needs to eat, inviting comments like "here, I'll give him some of my potato, or onion, or cheeseburger, etc." They don't believe me that DS rejects all solids, saying that I "just want to keep him a baby forever." Hello! He's only 6 mos. today!
