    Default Love my DH!

    Just wanted to share something awesome my DH said to me the other night. I was feeding DS (3.5 months) on the couch and DH was sitting in the nearby chair just relaxing. He looked at us and said, "isn't it amazing that you're actually keeping him alive SOLELY with the milk your body is producing? And not just keeping him alive...look at these pudgy thighs!!"

    I had to admit, it's a pretty heady thought to realize your baby is alive and thriving just off your own body!

    I agree! When I look at my chubby DS, I feel a sense of accomplishment! Especially when the doctor couldn't believe that my DS is EBF

    that's lovely! sweet husbands rock, don't they?
    my husband sometimes looks at our daughter and says to me, "That's all you baby. Isn't that amazing!" it is an incredible feeling to not only grow a human being but then watch her grow from your milk alone.

    I posted a very similar post once. Having such awesome support alone is a wonderful feeling but when you really think about what it is we are doing for our children, it makes your soul smile. So happy for you

    It is something! Of course, in Joe's case, he is an almost spooky mini-DH, so yes he was nourished by me, but no one says "That's all you!"

    It is so nice to have a supportive husband. My husband has been wonderful, too and always has said positive things about my daughter and me.

    If you aren't doing it already, I really recommend asking your husband to take pics of you nursing. You and your baby will both treasure them. My little girl just loves them and they are just too precious of memories to not capture if you can.

    This is a great idea. I wish I had told DH to take more photos!
