Slowing down at 15 months

All is quiet and smooth on the breastfeeding road of late. It's a lovely way to be, where breastfeeding is just normal and easy and a part of our day-to-day existence.

In the lead-up the Christmas, Harvey went through a week or so where he was breastfeeding every two hours, day and night. I don't know why that was, really... there was a lot going on, and potentially it was a way to stay connected to me when we were always busy, we had visitors, etc. It makes me really feel wonderful to be able to provide what he needs, though, and to just trust him to take the lead. Sometimes, of course, I just needed my body back for more than two hours at a time... and I'm learning that it is totally okay too, and putting boundaries up where I need to. This is a two-way-relationship, after all.
