There are a lot of things that are beneficial about breastfeeding and I’m sure someone else will cover all of the statistics that hit the points on why exactly it’s so wonderful for everyone involved. I try and not get bogged down in all of that because I’ve done a combination of breastfeeding and formula feeding and I think both get the job done.
I do however have one benefit that makes it all worth it to me.
The look. That excited look that they get when they know what’s coming and they just can’t wait one more second. That relaxed and happy look they get with a belly full of the good stuff.
If I were a better momtographer I’d have pics of these looks but alas, I have NONE. Just the little snapshots in my brain of those moments.
