The joy of feeding

Short and sweet today as let’s just say not a day with much spare time, though that two hour nap on the couch was a highlight. I am still trying to encourage Dad into napping, with no success!

Now I am being particular in not specifying breast or bottle feeding as this is a personal choice, and we all have individual circumstances.

What I wanted to reflect on was the joy and delight of feeding. It was not something that had crossed my mind beforehand at all, perhaps given this is a necessary task. However I cannot get over the absolute and simple joy in watching this little person feed. It is just bliss, this close and personal connection that even in the midst of an “I dont understand why won’t you go to sleep cycle” brings some peace and calm.
