    Everything! Well, almost everything. I don't love pumping at work but I don't hate it either.

    I love the contented smiles, milk drunk comas, drops of milk on his lips and face, sleep, lack of periods, and the time that is just ours to snuggle and feed. I could go on and on, but i won't. ;-)

    Seriously?? My little girl poops like every 2-4 days and I'm jumping for joy every time she does cause I still get paranoid about feeding her enough. Haha kind of something silly to get excited about.

    My breastfed babies both pooped almost every diaper as well until they were about 5-months-old when it was less and then they started on some solids soon after that. Some babies gorge themselves on breastmilk and have a lot of excess so they poop more. I think this also might be related to Cara's heavy milk flow--her babies were getting a lot of milk!

    So wish breastfeeding had been a ticket to being period-free. It wasn't for me. "Aunt Flo" showed back up before my daughter was 6 weeks old!

    I love being able to just lay down in bed with my baby on my arm breastfeeding and reading! Plus I get to stay in bed a lot :-)
    And the fact the the breast solves all problems and need for comfort( like when baby had a fall, is tired, upset or simply just wants to munch)
    Plus all the things that have been added before

    Love the brightened eyes and smirk when my babies see me unhook the bra and reveal their meal.
    Love that satisfactory smile at the end of nursing.
    And the fact that my kids, especially the preschooler, doesn't get sick like her fellow classmates.

    I think this is the funniest thing in the world when my daughter sees "the goods" and starts saying, "mum mum mum mum mum mum mum" and sometimes whining. She acts like she hasn't been fed in ages! Even if I'm only switching to the other side and she just had a huge meal she will still act like she just can't wait a second longer. It's hilarious!
