Con: Her immune system is not only boosted everyday but also, all.night.long by my milk's unique antibodies.
Pro: Now that she is older, she lets me know when she wants to nurse my tugging on my shirt.
Con: I can't wear dresses in public. Boo. If I did, I might just get called an exhibitionist and finally get to stage that nurse-in I've been dreaming about....
Pro: My milk is constantly changing and evolving to meet her nutritional needs. The milk she drank as a newborn is drastically different than the milk she drinks at one-year-old.
Pro: Nursing is the only time she is snuggly and calm.
Con: Well, not very calm. Her newest trick is perfecting various yoga positions while latched on. Downward dog seems to be her favorite.
Pro: While Liza hasn't had a stomach bug yet, it is good to know I won't need to worry about filling her up with sugary drinks to keep her hydrated. Sick babies love to nurse and breastmilk is the best source of hydration you can find.
Pro: She still nurses to sleep and it is so sweet watching her little eyes flutter shut as she continues to breastfeed even after she falls asleep.
Con: Nursing to sleep means I am the only one available to put her down for naps and night time.
Pro: No need to worry about her not eating enough solid foods to satisfy her growing body's needs. She can always drink more milk to fill her little tummy after she throws every bite of her supper on the floor.
Pro: Crying? Here, have a sip. Get happy.
Con: Crying again? For the millionth time today....here, have a sip. Get happy.
Pro: My little toddler loves her mama's milk and this mama is excited about entering the 2nd year of our nursing relationship.
