As you already know, I spend an astronomical amount of time breastfeeding. At first, I would do nothing but feed her, hold her little tiny hand, and love her. My mind and heart were so preoccupied by her magnificence that I just wanted to have this sacred time to be totally present. Now that it has been a 2 months, and I have probably breastfed her close to 40,000,000,000 times, I am beginning to want to do other things while I feed her.
Not every time… but at least some of the times.
So I have noticed that reading is okay. She doesn’t mind if I read. Score.
You know what is not okay? Texting. Texting is not okay. She gets very annoyed by my texting while feeding. As such, you would think that anything with the phone would bother her. Perhaps something about the way it contorts my arms? Or the movement of my hands? But that is not it. You know how I know that. Because looking at pictures of her on my phone is permitted. I can look at pictures of her. Even send pictures of her. But no texting.
Eating is also allowed. She doesn’t seem to mind that I eat, but I do get crumbs on her head, which makes me feel like a barbarian.
Talking on the phone is only tolerated if I don’t get too animated.
Watching things on the computer is only sometimes acceptable. It depends on what I am watching, and the tone of what is going on. I have to be watching the right thing… like Teen Mom.
