One of the biggest things that I’m looking forward to when I have a new baby is breastfeeding. I miss it. The bond and that down-time that it brings are so peaceful and it was an amazing 3 years of my last babe’s life. Given that I didn’t breastfeed long with my older two children, I was elated that my breastfeeding relationship with my youngest child went smoothly after the first 6 weeks and self-weaned at 3-years-old.
I hope that I’ll have another “easy” breastfeeding relationship with my next baby too. Since I know that we won’t be having any more babies after this next one, I am hoping to cherish every moment that I won’t be experiencing again — like breastfeeding.
I was browsing Etsy (my guilty pleasure) and came across a new line of items I had not seen before — items made from your own breast milk, everything from jewelry to soap. Totally custom made — you ship it frozen to them, they make your stuff. Fascinating, right?
