Day 298

Pumping Mamma

Today has been all about the bewbs. I have been hand expressing and gwtting used to the electrical double breast pump for the last few days, but today I properly started to put everything into practice.
When I saw my midwife yesterday and spoke about my breastfeeding and the hickies on my areolas, she asked if she could examine my breasts. I've been whapping them out left right and centre for everyone and anyone by the incubator side when feeding or doing kangaroo hold, so I had no qualms about a medical practitioner who I asked for help from. (Phew, long sentence.)
She told me that I have perfect nipples for breastfeeding. I don't think I have ever been so body proud as I was at that moment. I've always hoped I would be able to breastfeed, and it actually looks like I might be really good at it.
All this yummy goodness for my little one, and it's my body that is producing it! It's almost too good to be true.
