Last weekend when we were home visiting family I was nursing DS upstairs at my MIL’s house (it’s a loft like area open to the downstairs) my MIL calls up from the kitchen
MIL: ‘Autumn, are you nursing Silas?’
Me: ‘yes ma’am’ (all the while thinking oh boy here we go, he’s 15 months old now she’s going to say we need to wean)
MIL: ‘I can hear him down here, he’s purring like a little kitten’
Now let me explain cause he doesn’t really make a purring kitten noise, it’s more like a growling puppy noise
but still It was so sweet of her to say and really made me happy that she is still being so supportive.
The other day I got a really NASTY stomach virus, so bad I had to go to the ER and get fluids I was dehydrated, well DS didn't catch it and the Doc said it was good that I was still BF otherwise he would have definitely gotten it.
Well after I got home from the hospital I was explaining to my mom and she kept saying that she hoped Silas didn’t catch it and I explained that the doc said it was good that I was still BF and she says well Thank God you didn’t listen to me and quit…. this from the lady who nearly gagged while dumping my post surgery milk from pumping a few months ago!!!
