I had an absolutely great day with my girl. She was so sweet and silly and loving. She napped wonderfully. She was wonderful.
Since we had her on formula for a couple of days, nursing her has been challenging. I’ve been working hard to overcome my supply issue and as a result, she has been a bit frustrated. My milk flow is now super slow – or at least it is compared to the flow when I had an over supply.
Anyway, most of our feedings are interrupted 3-10 times with blood curdling screams. It sucks. Especially because I LOVE nursing. It felt so sad to have our rhythm totally out of whack.
Well, tonight, even though Charlotte stayed up a little late to play with daddy and I, she nursed so well. It was the first time in almost 2 weeks. She held my hand and rubbed my arm and was just sweet as can be. It just melts me.
A lot of the time I’ll play on my phone or “like” every post I see on Facebook while I nurse. Tonight, I just watched my sweet baby and cherished our time together.
When she was done eating, she sat up and fussed a little. I gave her the paci and stood up, holding her against me. We swayed, hugging for a few minutes before I kissed her and put her in her crib. There were no tears, no fusses. She just laid in bed like a good little angel, and within minutes, she was asleep.
Tonight I have a glowing heart and more for love for that sweet little girl than I know what to do with.
I had to stop myself from playing on my phone while nursing too… It’s tempting, because I’m doing it so often. Ha, ha. But at the same time, these moments will be gone too fast, and I want to treasure the closeness.
Beautiful post!! 🙂
