"...one of the nicest things about breastfeeding is that it lets you take little breaks throughout your busy day.... Your life may seem to speed up faster and faster, but when you're breastfeeding, you'll have to take time to gather [her] up in your arms and be still for a few minutes. A few deep breaths later, and life seems simple again."
(The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, 8th Edition)
I'm sure it's very easy for new mothers to think of feedings as somewhat of a chore. Like laundry and diaper changes, it's something that needs to be done frequently and can take you away from other things that you're doing. Instead of thinking about feeding as just another item on the daily to-do list, I want to remember that it's a break. A time to be still. A time when a sink full of dishes can wait. A time where my computer is no where in sight. A time where there is nothing to do but to gaze into my baby's beautiful eyes and tell her how much I love her.
