It has been the only thing that the baby could keep down while he's been sick. We have been nursing for so long that I don't give much thought to it anymore but this week I have been so thankful to "still" be breastfeeding. That being said, I haven't been totally immune to people's thoughts and opinions of toddler nursing. Don't get me wrong, I like a good discussion, and I respect other opinions as I hope my opinion is respected. Today I received this video and it came at just the right time to be reminded how wonderful breastfeeding is. Which makes me feel even more certain that nursing for the natural duration has been the right choice for our family. How lucky we are.
And no one says it better than Mr. Rogers. Feeding really can be a wonderful way of expressing love.
