5 reasons why I love breastfeeding

My breastfeeding journey began when my daughter Zooey was two weeks old. She was born a few weeks premature, so to compensate she nursed around the clock. Now at one and a half years old, we nurse less frequently, but it is so demanding that at times, I feel worn out.

I battle with my perfectionist self daily. House chores pile up and it often feels like I don’t get much done. Sometimes I wish Zooey would stop waking me up during the night and stop calling my boob in the middle of her nap. I feel terrible for harbouring such thoughts, so this post is a reminder to myself on those days. Because when it’s over, I know I am going to miss it.

My 5 Reasons Why I Love Breastfeeding:

The Extra Cuddles
Our nursing sessions mean extra bonding time. I really appreciate these moments because I get to give my little girl more hugs, more kisses, more cuddles and whisper more ‘I love yous’.

The Nap Inducer
Naps are a mummy’s best friend. Nursing Zooey as she’s taking a nap is somewhat calming and relaxing. In fact so relaxing I often drift off to nap land with her.

The Boo-boo Soother
When you have an adventurous little explorer running around, there’s nothing quicker than whipping out the boob to fix your boo-boo problem!

The ‘Breastfeeding’ Card
Have you ever found yourself stuck in a situation you wanted to get out of? Enough said.

The $ Saver
I like the ease of breastfeeding. No preparing or sterilizing bottles and no worrying about running out of formula. Best of all it’s free of cost.
