First, if you haven’t seen this video, take 30 seconds to watch this PSA about breastfeeding.
It cracks me up and inspires me.
Adeline and I two months into this breastfeeding journey.
I breastfed Elias six months exclusively and then had to supplement a bit of formula, but still nursed “part time” until he was almost one.
I hope to do at least that with Adeline.
Although she has gotten the hang of the bottle, she still LOVES nursing and definitely prefers Mama feeding her.
She nurses a lot more frequently than Elias and is just a bit clingy-er in general.
And on the days that I am tired, sick of pumping (pumping four times a day is not fun) or just want to quit, I remmeber not only the benefits shared in this video, but that it makes my sweet girl happy.
I love that she needs me.
And before I know it, she will be drinking from apple juice from a sippy cup and won’t want Mama’s milk.
The time goes so quickly…
