Hurt Feelings

I hurt her little feelings. I didn’t mean to. She bit me while I was nursing her and I cried out in pain. Poor baby was afraid to nurse after that. I think we are both a little afraid of each other. Things are getting real.
She is such a wonderful, compliant, sweet baby. We went to dinner tonight and saw a restaurant of kids climbing, crying and being demanding. She just watched and smiled.
But she is her own person and caring for her hurts right now. I’m afraid to nurse her again and afraid she will go on a nursing strike and not nurse at the same time.
I expect in about 4 hours I’ll know if she is over it when she wakes up for a midnight snack.
This precious little girl. I’m sorry I hurt you. It won’t be the last time, so we’ll just have to have grace for each other.

  1. This will happen. Teeth will come and then it will be a flick on the cheek and she’ll cry. But she will move past it (and know better than to bite) and you’ll feel a gently hug from God for disciplining her. It’s how it works. Or so I’ve found.
