Why I love Breastfeeding

  • It's free!!!
  • I don't have to mess around with bottles, I'm scatty enough. I can simply leave the house with just packing nappies & wipeswhich I forget half the time.
  • We have this amazing bonding time which is special to the both of us.
  • I'm feeding my child myself, using me. You don't know how amazing it is until you actually do it.
  • It's good for baby. Simple as that.
  • It's good for me.
  • I can be lazy, I usually end up bringing him in bed with me in the morning where we both fall asleep feeding.
  • It's the only natural food designed for my baby.
  • Spare hand, he's currently feeding now whilst I use my free hand to type this.
  • I'm more hungry which means more cake and no excuse for having seconds.
  • It's on tap, I know I'm not going to run out and get caught short. Oh the amount of times I needed to make last minute dashes to shop for powder for the toddler.
  • Already at the perfect temperature.
  • Exclusive breastfeeding can apparently delay the onset of periods, if this is what I have to thank for not having those horrid stomach cramps then I love it even more then you can imagine.
  • It has multiple uses, quick squirt in his eye helped to clear up his conjunctivitis.
  • Excuse to chill in front of the TV and make the husband fetch me drinks & nibbles.
  • BIG boobs, it's been a novelty for me to actually have cleavage for the first time in my life and to actually be able to fill bras. I was nicknamed 'the ironing board' at school so it's nice to experience the opposite.
  • It's given me something be passionate about, I just want to tell everyone who will listen about this amazing new thing I'm experiencing.
  • Breastfeeding burns calories, this could possibly be one my favourite reasons.
  • I find it rather relaxing, I think this is because I don't have to fuss around. Boob out, away we go.
  • I'm producing what my baby needs, there's a reason my body is producing milk and that's it.

And you know what? I seem to think of a new reason everyday to why I love Breastfeeding, so don't be surprised if you find me adding more reasons on a daily basis!
