::sigh:: Girls, I miss breastfeeding.
Everyone says you’ll miss being pregnant once you have your baby.
They’re filthy liars.
What you never hear (or at least I’ve never heard) is that you’ll miss nursing.
I can’t believe how much I miss breastfeeding Roey. If I pass by a photo in my old breastfeeding blog posts or album on the computer of him nursing I get this pang in my chest of straight up longing.
I miss it.
I miss the closeness of it, the feelings of value I derived from it, and I miss seeing the cute lil nursing face he made.
I really miss the magical sleep-inducing effect of it too! Sometimes when he’s running around like the cray cray toddler that he is, I wish I could just pop a magic boob in his mouth and have him pass out 10 minutes later.
I’m ready for BabyH2.0 to get here so I can nurse again. I know that first 4-6 weeks is going to be super painful and sucky, and I’m prepared for it. But after the nipples are healed up, it’s going to be glorious.
I’m re-reading my fave breastfeeding book in preparation. Fingers crossed that baby girl is a good latcher like her guzzlegut brother was.
Only 5 more weeks and I’ll get to start again!
