|Me with my firstborn right after she finished nursing. Love her little “milk coma”!|
One of my favorite parts of life with a newborn is breastfeeding. Oh, I keep at it much longer than the newborn stage (22 months with my first, and my goal is at least 2 years with my second), but there is something extra special about all the cuddles and bonding spent the first few days of nursing a newborn.
And while the emotional benefits to both mom and baby are amazing, the physical benefits cannot be ignored.
I believe breastfeeding paves the way for a real-food life.
Check out some of the benefits of breastfeeding in my post over at Modern Alternative Mama today!
(And while you’re there–congratulate Kate–AKA “Modern Mama” on the recent birth of her third child!)
