And after four months of not breastfeeding and her pledges ... it didn't feel right to me. And then she broke her arm! In the hospital she didn't get any painkillers and it was soo painful after the twisting the technicians did on her arm for an x-ray She was screaming with pain. She asked me for a breast and I gave it to her! So, she will be 3 in two months time and we are back breastfeeding on demand after 4 months break.
The article I have stumbled upon is fantastic. It is the best I have ever read about breastfeeding. My favourite part is: ''By Calum’s second year, I had fully realized just how useful breastfeeding could be. Nothing gets a child to sleep as quickly, relieves the boredom of a long car journey as well, or calms a breaking storm as swiftly as a little warm milk from mummy. It’s the lazy mother’s most useful parenting aid, and by now I thought I was using it to its maximum effect.'' I can relate to it 100%.
Please read the whole Article and hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.Breastfeeding in the Land of Genghis Khan | InCultureParent
