My baby has a baby


Poor, doll-deprived 20-month-old Talitha has decided that Bunny is her baby.

Bunny regularly has nappy changes and has recently begun to sit in a chair to join us for meals.

Bunny often needs to poo and always on the potty.

I now know the drill, a hair clip for Talitha only if there’s one for Bunny.

I’ve done my fair share of breastfeeding Bunny. She tells me off if I try to do it over my shirt. Silly mummy, shirt up, bra down. Well, OK.

I remind her it’s her bunny after all and she tenderly takes it into her arms, then not at all tenderly shoves it under her top for a quick feed.

But yesterday. Oh yesterday was too cute. I found her trying to tie Bunny to herself with a tea towel.

It became instantly clear what she was after so I wrapped Bunny with a scarf instead.

She’s already learning – there are so many beautiful ways to carry a baby.

    Ever so sweet and touching. This makes me long for my ‘bunnies’ again. Those were some of the very best years!

    Absolutely adorable. I have breastfed a fair collection of Sicily’s soft toys over the past few weeks. When I suggest she feed them herself she looks at me like I’m bonkers.

    So beautiful, natural and instinctive. My girl does exactly the same with her muslin cloth. It shows they are used to seeing such love and closeness themselves. Blessed children!
