Why I love nursing

This is my personal opinion and these thoughts are my own.

There is nothing like looking down into your babies eyes as they are looking back at you and saying thank you mommy for giving me you. I love when my 2 month old flashes that teethless grin and he just stares at me with the look of awe and amazement, like wow you are my mommy. It just melts me everytime.

I believe breastfeeding is the most natural thing you can provide for your baby. There is no mixing at 3 am {his usual feeding time}, it has the perfect balance of vitamins and nutrients, it is the healthier alternative.

Yes it can be time consuming and you may feel like your body doesn't belong to you anymore because baby demands milk from you. If you have chosen to breastfeed, just remember hang in there it may be rough for some at first, but it has lasting rewards.

I can testify to the bond of closeness that I have with all of my children. Now I can't shake them. They are all attached to me all of the time and the closeness doesn't stop when they get older either. This is not to say you can't have that same closeness if you chose not to nurse. I am just saying this is what worked for me.

  1. I absolutely loved breast feeding. My breast feeding days are over (about four months now) and although it was time for us to part, I do miss the closeness I shared with my baby who is a little over three. Enjoy your time!
