Ok, so this is kinda a pointless thread, but I just had an epiphany about this whole breastfeeding thing! I think I finally get it!!!!! Today, we got the keys to our new house (the 1st one we've actually bought rather than rented) and me & LO were sat on the stairs while I fed him in our rather cold & completely empty house, lol, and I was humming away to pass the time while he nursed & I looked down & realised he'd stopped sucking (but still latched on) & was staring up at me. Now, he often does this when he takes a little break, but this was different. I said hello to him & he came off & gave me the biggest smile, then took my boob in his litle hands & latched back on, but carried on staring up at me... I officially have a melted heart!!! It really dawned on me why I chose to breastfeed & this amazing bond that is building between us & how I hope to God that I'm setting him up for a bright, happy, friendly future that I can nurture for as long as I can. I'm just really happy now & I am so glad I chose to breastfeed (as I hadn't actually planned to, lol) and so greatful that my OH is really supportive of it too, so much so, HE told me he doesnt want me to back to work in February & that if I want, to only go back to work when we're ready to stop BFing as he sees it as its my job supporting my son in that way & his job to support him financially. Bless him. And I'm glad he bought it up as I was kinda gonna bring it up myself in the new year, lol. anyway, this has turned out to be much longer than I thought, so appologies for that, but I just wanted to share my special little moment coz I'm a soppy git at heart Roll on the 3 month growth spurt!!!
