I make milk, what's your superpower??

I don't know why I love that quote, but I do. I want it on a bumper sticker, but we can't find it online anywhere. I love nursing, it's great. Knowing that I'm providing all my little one needs is kind of empowering. I like things that make me feel like a woman. So many times in today's world it is easy to lose site of one's femininity. It is one of the reasons I love wearing skirts. I kind of miss the days when I was only wearing skirts. I need to get back to that. Stopped for some kind of silly reasons, like not getting a chance to shave my legs often. And the cats like to 'play', meaning the jump and attack the skirt (me as well), with the skirt as I walk (I wear long skirts).

Anyhow, back to the point of the post. I truly love breastfeeding. I think I'd be much more down and not making as much positive progress if it weren't for the bond I feel with Paul through feeding him. I am so lucky that I am not going to have to work so that we can keep this complete bond. (yes I know you can still breastfeed while working, I just know for me it would get harder, and I can be lazy, so I think I'd end up stopping in the long run) When I'm getting kind of frustrated with the details of being a mom, stopping to nurse him really just helps me realize what I'm doing, makes me realize it's not about me and dusting the shelves!

So I hope more women get the chance to experience this. There is so much misinformation out there about breastfeeding, I just hope somehow the right information starts to be handed out more often. I think the lactivist movement just won itself a new supporter! :)

Off to go cuddle with Paul before he wakes, he had a hard day today.

Try cafepress. I saw a few different ones there, or you could design your own & open up your own store there.

I had thought of them but hadn't looked, thanks for reminding me.
