I feel like I've learned a lot from breastfeeding too. I've learned how to be a gentler, calmer parent. I've learned that the best things in life are free. I've also learned that, like the previous poster, our society is completely clueless when it comes to breasts. Which has led me to discover that our society is screwed up in A LOT of things, too many to list.
Breastfeeding has been a way for me to recover emotionally from my c/s in June '03. When I was completely doped up on all the pain killers, I still had enough sense to try and nurse my baby, despite the nurses best efforts to take my baby to the nursery for a bottle so I could rest. It took us a little while to learn, but we learned and she thrives from it. I still have a lot of healing to do from the c/s but nursing my sweet girl has brought me some closure.
