The very first time I was up close and smelled my DD's breath and then I understood how incredible the milk smelled on my DD's lips.

How heavenly!

I still miss that smell.:

I love the way my little one simply must hold my hand while nursing. She started expecting it a couple of weeks after she was born. When she's wiggly or fidgety, I just grab her hands and she grabs back tight and it calms her down.

Now whenever she latches on, she reaches out her hand and holds it open until I insert a finger. Then she grabs it as tightly as she can and pulls it to her chest and holds my hand in both of hers until she falls asleep.

I love how the first time I was able to hold my kids after birth, I started breastfeeding right away and they had no problems with latching on. I love how when they were newborns, they'd root around looking for the boob.

I love how breastfeeding makes everything better. I love the closeness we share, whether we're alone in a room or our surroundings are hectic, when we are feeding, it's just us.

I love when everytime my son feeds, he wraps his hand around my finger. No matter how many times we wake up in the night, and I am tired beyond belief, his little hand reaching and holding my finger while we nurse, makes everything all right.

I love how when he's not really hungry, but just wants the closeness, he will smile and laugh and make a game of it. I love how he knows I am always there for him, whether he's hungry or just wants comfort. I love how I am not only breastfeeding for him, but for myself also. I wouldn't miss any of it for the world.

My baby is 18 days old, would it be too late to try breastfeeding now?

No! It's never too late to start breastfeeding. Even mothers who adopt can breastfeed their babies Good luck to you and I hope we get to see your happy nursing moments here soon!

Oh yes the finger holding and my girls would always twirl (not pull!) my hair when they nursed. I miss that so much

Hi Everyone:

I'd like to share how wonderful it is to still be breastfeeding as my daughter approaches 3 1/2 years. I have allowed her to direct her breastfeeding, and she only feeds at night before bed now. It has only been a pleasure and never a burden.

My husband is French, and I don't know if you're aware, but they have a bad record for breastfeeding. I get pressure from him to stop, but I have to try to remain confident that I am doing the right thing.

Thanks for listening!
Karyn
