That was is was just babys face, mommys boob, and mommys face. I imagine there are tons of women who do this. I never didnt nurse when she was swaddled. In fact, that is how she got to sleep many a night.

Oh and YES to the bolded. I had forgotten about that. I had really low supply so the baby had to work to get her milk. If she wasn't starving, sometimes she would rather look at her fingers or touch my hair and get lost in doing that. Which, for moms with good supply wasn't a problem.....but my baby kinda needed to sustain her latch with me and if she didn't, she'd likely as not lose interest. Swaddling REALLY helped us with breastfeeding.
