When did we become so detatched from our internal cues? I look at my 7 month old daughter who clearly knows when she is hungry, and stops eating when she is full. And when she spits up it is simply because of her immature digestive system, not because she's thinking: That breastmilk sure had a lot of calories, I'd better get rid of it and then go do some leg lifts in my bouncy seat! I know the social reasons, etc. I just wonder if we can train ourselves to get back to trusting our instincts or are they burried forever? Then again, babies need regular sucking satisfaction too. Maybe that's what I'm missing. I should get a pacifier or some lollipops out next time I feel like binging. lol.
