Nursing a tiny, fairly immobile, toothless infant is usually a sweet bonding ritual nicely punctuated
by those gorgeous "milk drunk" faces when they lazily and happily
pass out at the breast. Sure, you're insanely sleep-deprived and on constant boob duty, but at least you can practically sleep through breastfeeding at this age, or
at least peruse your phone, catching up on news and Facebook.
Nursing an older baby or toddler is a whole other situation. My not-yet, but almost 1-year-old squirms and pinches, and I have to literally wrestle him into
position. Breastfeeding at this age requires a different set of skills, including a heaping pile of patience. Still, I strangely carry on, aiming for this much-hyped 12-month mark, feeding my formula-averse, wiggly son. Really, this is the sort of thing that is better explained by GIFs.
EVERYTHING distracts them, so breastfeeding (once again) takes forever.
