Thank god for extended breastfeeding!

So my daughter just got tubes put in yesterday and her adenoids taken out. She was pretty upset after, obviously, and only wanted me and wanted to nurse. She nursed for close to an hour and then felt a little better. I turned to my husband and said, "Can you imagine what this would be like if I'd have weaned her already?" We both agreed that a 32 month old nursing really comes in handy in a hospital situation. One thing i was a little peeved about though was that in the recovery area they closed the curtain around us. We weren't in a room yet, just a big area where all the post-op kids were. Now, fortunately this is the first and only surgery I've ever been to for kids but do they always shut the curtain around you? I was thinking that they thought we needed privacy or something or that they didn't want the other kids to see my daughter nursing. Anyway, just thought I'd share my experience with everyone.

So glad to hear you helped her. That is just wonderful.

they probably thought you needed some privacy.
