My 4.5-year-old daughter has been fascinated with my boobs lately. She keeps grabbing them and playing with them. So, today I asked her, “Do you miss nursie?” (She weaned about a year and a half ago.) She leaned in close and said, “Yes, ’cause I like that you love me.” It really touched me, and I thought it was wonderful that she understood that breastfeeding is about so much more than just food. It’s an amazing bonding experience. Hearing her say that today made me feel so validated about breastfeeding, like it was all worth it.
