It is an amazing thing to sit quitely with your baby, them feeding while looking up at you with such loving eyes and to know that it's solely you keeping them alive and giving them what they need to grow and develop. It's awesome. Nothing at all compares.
All the cracked nipples, painfully full breasts, clogged milk ducts and mastitis seem inconsequential - this is where you hear that sound of a record being played backwards. haha It's all horribly painful but you do forget it in that awesome moment. A friend was saying how she's looking forward to being pregnant and breastfeeding and I told her what I've written above, it really is wonderful.
