When she was little and nursing was not going so well what kept me going was the smile she would get on her face when she got near my breast.
And the little grunts she would make when I was getting her to the breast- Faster mama!
Her delicious milky smell when she was EBF. Even DH couldn't get enough of it. It's delicious! Even last night DH was saying she still has that smell sometimes, and was sniffing her and drinking it in.
I love that for 9 months I grew her, for 6-7 months I fed her exclusively. Only when food was introduced did she have any other outside source of nutrition, I thought that was so cool. I made her!
, I would think.
When she was older I loved how she would sit up in bed and fall face-down onto a boob, so cute.
Now, at 19 months, I love how much she loves "Booboo." I love that she has me nurse all her toys, I love thinking that maybe she'll have a memory of nursing when she's older- how cool is that?
I love how quickly she relaxes and how she pops off to say something, and pops back on real quick.
And when they smile with the boob in their mouths, OMG.
