I'm just totally
right now!

We often tell Orion while giving him food: "Mmmmmm num num! Is it good Orion? Nummy? Mmmmm num num!"

Today he was breastfeeding, took a break and said "Num num!" It totally made my heart melt!

For those who don't know my story, I never made a full supply, even with trying *everything* including domperidone, fenugreek until I couldn't stand the idea of pancakes and waffles anymore :LOL, pumping when Orion wasn't latched (and he nursed CONSTANTLY until he was 6 months old), and using a SNS to supplement for the first 4-5 months (after that I supplemented with bottles). I couldn't ever pump more than 1/2 ounce of breastmilk, and if I pumped *all* day, every 2 hours, I could get maybe an ounce TOTAL.

So to know that, even though I could never pump enough milk to really *see* that I was making more than drops, he still gets enough milk *now* at almost 16 months old to taste and think is nummy just makes me want to cry (in a wonderful way).

It was just such a sweet sweet thing. And I knew you would all understand, not look at me weird. So I'm sharing.

Ok just had to add Orion just ran up to me, said "Num num?" while doing his patent trying-to-grab-the-breast move that means want to nurse! So of course, I nursed him.
