Since keeping Katherine fed is currently an all-day, every day affair, Sydney and I thought we might have a bit of fun with this whole breastfeeding thing. Apparently some kids turn up their noses at milk if the mother had spicy food for dinner. Last night’s dish certainly qualified as spicy, and Katherine seemed to do just fine. We’ll keep trying out spices on her, though; after nine months of heartburn I’m ready for some spice again and we want Katherine to get used to our diet.
Today Sydney made a wonderful lunch of spiced apples, herbed mashed potatoes . . . and roasted beets. His goal? He wants to see if the beet juice affects the color of Katherine’s diapers. I, no lover of beets, agreed to eat them–and to hand off diaper duty so that he would get to see the results first-hand. Anyone know of anything else you can do to make breastfeeding a bit more interesting?
