Lacan: "Lacan points out that the during the oral phase the
infant is demanding: demanding the breast, demanding to be the object of
the mother's desire, demanding her ever-presence. However, there follows
a demand on the part of the mother with the advent of toilet training and
weaning that bars the previous entitlements of "His Majesty, the Baby"
to defecate at its own whim or receive the breast upon demand. Consequently,
"the satisfaction of a need [becomes] subordinated to the demand of the
Other, i.e. the subject (child) can only satisfy his need on the condition
that he thereby complies with the Other's demand" (Zizek 37)" (Nierenberg,
1998). Note "projection" contribution.
