After I wrote the note on grieving, I thought I would write about all the things I love about nursing. My son was 2 in November and at this age, he's definately a little person. This is funny because we actually talk while we nurse. so here are a few of my favs about nursing at this age:
I love that if I am lying in bed on my side, He pinches my other nipple with his toes.
I love when he sticks his fingers up my nose while he's nursing
I love how we make funny sounds EXCLUSIVELY while we're nursing
I love that he stares so intently at my face, even when I don't notice. He knows every molecule of my face.
I love smelling him when we nurse and even when he's dirty or sweaty, the smell is so sweet.
I love that he knows its not a good idea to "get the baba's" in public now
I love when he tries to talk with a mouth full when he's nursing.
I love when he climbs in my lap and asks, "can i dink a baba's?" and smiles and cocks his head.
I love that I am the only person who can comfort him by breast when he is sick or hurt.
I love how he has to constantly play with the other "baba" when he's nursing.
I love that he is so smart and well balanced emotionally due to nursing
I love knowing that when he's a grown man with kids of his own, he will love women and treat them well because he loves his mommy, thanks in huge part to breastfeeding.....
So these are some of the things I love about nursing....Gen
