And it came to pass...

  1. ... that on the twelfth day of the eleventh month the woman did bring forth a son.
  2. And she did bring him to her breast, and he did suckle.
  3. On the third day her milk did come in, and she was full unto leaking, and the child did nurse and was glad.
  4. And the mother was full, and did pump, and leak, and nurse, and leak, and nurse, and leak again.
  5. And the child did grow ten ounces in eleven days.
  6. And the mother was glad for good bras and washable nursing pads and olive oil and water bottles and the smell of the baby's milk breath.
  7. And at four weeks of age the child was found to weigh two pounds and one ounce more than at the time of his birth.
  8. And thus we see that mama milk is not nearly so thin as it appeareth!

(yeah, still got that hand by his head...all the time!)

Oh, there's nothing so sweet as a breastfed baby's breath! So glad the breastfeeding is going well. (And, I totally stole that cute animation and put it on my blog!)
