Mama Knows Breast
When I was a brand-new mother, nursing a tiny infant and trying to balance the newness of motherhood with my own needs, I often watched Food Network while Liesl nursed. I kept telling people that I was watching episodes of "Iron Chef America" while I nursed Baby Liesl so that the food knowledge would seep out of my brain, into the breastmilk, and into Liesl's system very early in life. But I had an ulterior motive: It was just my excuse to watch the show myself and give myself a break while Liesl nursed, and she nursed constantly as a newborn. I'm fairly certain that nobody actually bought the lie.
