This is the final photograph in my little series to celebrate Breastfeeding Awareness Week.
Granted, this isn't the best quality photograph, but I really love it. It was taken at my lovely mother in law's 70th birthday party, so Teeny would have been 11 days off 13 months old and this is what I call snuggly boob. It was way past his bedtime and he was tired and so *gasp* he was feeding for comfort, but you know what? That's ok!! Even though there are plenty of parenting "gurus" who will tell you otherwise I am telling you now that the world will not end if you feed your baby for comfort. Yes I could have let him cry, but what would that have achieved? I tell you what a stressed out mommy and a very distressed baby. This is the beauty of breastfeeding; it can be used to calm a baby who is hungry, tired, teething, feverish......the list is endless. Mother nature made it that way. Isn't she clever?
