I love it when...

...DS falls asleep eating, unlatches, and the milk rolls out of his sweet mouth.
...He watches me while he eats.
...He unlatches just to give me a smile.
...He's hungry and he's grunting and rooting all around then finally finds it and calms right down and looks in my eyes.
...He's full and unlatches and talks and talks to me about how good it was!

I thought this would be a fun support thread- we can read all the sweet things we love about bfing when we're feeling frustrated about how it's going and remember why we love it and want to keep going.
Post yours!

Re: I love it when...

Those things are all perfect, and the perfect embodiment of what it's like for me too. NOTHING like it.

I like it when she's nursing and drifts off, but when the nipple slips out of her mouth she 'perks up' and starts rooting like crazy until she gets it again. All without ever opening her eyes!

Re: I love it when...

I love when strangers stop me to comment how beautiful my baby is...how big and strong, how alert, how healthy, how happy...and I realize that I made him that way by breastfeeding him. It makes all those 4 am "wake up calls" totally worthwhile!

My kiddo is going through a very squirmy phase at the moment, so I also love when he finally relaxes, closes his eyes, and he gently reaches out his hand and strokes my fingers while he's eating. Its the sweetest feeling in the world.

Re: I love it when...

i love it when....

...she falls asleep nursing in bed, unlatches, sighs, and turns her head just enough to use me as a pillow.
...she "pets" me as she's nursing.
...she holds my finger and stares at me.
...she is able to nurse until she is actually full, and is content and alert when she is done. (i had a breast reduction, so that doesn't happen often)

I have to laugh when she occasionally zurburt's me when she's done, especially when in public.

Is a zurburt like a raspberry?

DD stops mid-nursing to blow raspberries, then goes back to work. It's hilarious!!

My little one is weaned, but just before we weaned, she would grab my shirt and try to look down/reach down when she was starting to feel hungry! It was always a funny way to say "mama! Food!"
