In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, I’m sharing from our 100 Words Project every day.
Today’s post is from Danielle:
From the first time my first little one latched on it was orgasmic; almost literally. I wasn’t expecting that. And the same happened with my second. Breastfeeding has become the deep connection I’ve always wanted and never knew existed. It has brought me closer to my children AND my husband. Sure, it’s hard at times (burning nipples of Thrush) and I felt like I wanted my body back (hey, where’d my sex drive go?) but the benefits of breastfeeding have always outweigh the drawbacks in my eyes. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
