This is very true! Of course, except from the health benefits of breastfeeding for both mom and child, it indeed strengthens the bond between them. I remember when I have to give up from breastfeeding because of health reasons, and I no longer produce enough milk for my youngest, my husband and I had a hard time training her to bottlefeed. It took us 7 months to do it! Now she's 3, and I'm missing those times when I'm her only source of food. When I used to hold her hand and looked at her while she fell asleep after latching on. Okay. Enough! Now, she barely even touch my breasts! Aww! I'm really missing it!
Enjoy breastfeeding and motherhood!
Stay fabulous mommies!
