The Best Thing

Posted: July 21st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Breastfeeding Blog Hop | 5 Comments »

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.

This post is part of the Breastfeeding Blog Hop hosted by Life with Levi and co-hosted by Diary of a Devil Dog Wife and myself every Thursday and Friday. Feel free to link up pertinent posts old and new- this weeks topic is The Benefits of Breastfeeding.

    When Grant was 6 months old, a friend of mine did a series of breastfeeding portraits for me for free. She's a photographer and La Leche League leader, and wanted shots to use for LLL materials. I obviously don't have them hanging up for display on my walls, but it's so cool to have the documentation of that time. She managed to get the content look that a baby has as they're nursing. Grant might be mortified that I have them, but *I* will treasure them even when he's a grown man with kids of his own. 🙂

    I love it when people have breastfeeding photos, how lucky are you to have a pro who knows what a good breastfeeding shot is to take a few of you! All of the ones I have are either a) blinding flash bouncing off of a breast or b) a panoramic shot from across the room which gives no indication of what is going on.

    I confess that when my nephew was a breastfeeding baby and my sister left him with me once, it creeped the hell out of me that he would seize with excitement whenever he got close to my boob. I was like 15 though so I'll forgive my young self. Now it cracks me up when Leela is hungry, it reminds me of that dog in the Beggin Strips commercial, only she's less hairy and she's screaming "BOOB! IT'S A BOOB!!"

    The other day Judah was so excited he started sucking on the side of my boob. It took him about 30 seconds to realize he wasn't going to get what he wanted with his chosen latch point. Then he stopped, laughed, readjusted and went to town. You've just gotta laugh because really- who else could get away with that kind of behavior?

    When Mikey asks to nurse and then sees me adjust, he yells "Yay!"
