Happy BFing moment this morning

My son is 6 1/2 weeks old and started giving me REAL smiles when he was 5 weeks old.

I was nursing him this morning and after a few minutes he stopped, pushed himself off me, looked up at me and gave me a BIG smile, gazed at me for a few seconds, then resumed nursing.

It was just such a sweet moment, thought I'd share it because I'm sure you all understand how special those times can feel. BFing can be exhausting and isn't always easy, but it is sure worth it!

Thanks so much for sharing! I'm still having trouble emotionally with newborn neediness and lack of any real response. I'm happy to read that it will likely change soon!

It truly is an amazing feeling when they finally start interacting with their world.

I'm also sitting here giggling at the milk-drunk baby comment earlier. That is such a perfect description!
