So, we're on day 6 of our partial nursing strike. DS has been friendly with the ladies and asks to nurse, but he just gets so shy when it comes time to get down to business. Anyway, this morning he woke up before me, and when he saw that I was awake, he asked to nurse. I brought out my breast, and he nursed a little bit--he didn't just point at it!
Later on in the day, he fell asleep on the way home from our outing, and when we got home, he woke up and nursed. Tears were in my eyes because my baby had nursed and he didn't have to be asleep to do it!
If we make it out of this strike, I'll never take nursing for granted again. The strike has shown me that everything else can wait because our nursing relationship isn't going to be around forever. No one around me understands our nursing bond, but I know that ya'll do.
