Adventures In Mush

We’ve started weaning Snappy. Though weaning doesn’t seem like the right word. Weaning indicates that we are taking something away from him, weaning him off breast milk and onto food but that isn’t what we’re doing. If anything we’re planning to breastfeed for another six months at least – and …
