Breastfeeding Rocks / La Teta Mola

Today we went to a breastfeeding support group; I’ve been wanting to go to one since we moved to the area but never got round to it. It was very nice to meet other mums in the area, and in particular to see not-so-little little ones being breastfed. One thing is knowing what the WHO recommends, and another one actually seeing it in practice 🙂
I liked that most of us babywear too (there were even a few slings passed back and forth!) and that a couple of mums commented on how nice Chloe’s cardigan is – my mum knitted it! 🙂
She was asleep in her ring sling most of the time, but when she was awake she loved looking around at all the other babies and kids. A first for her.
However, by far my favourite bit was that whenever I heard a very young baby cry, or in fact make any kind of noise, my boobs would “tingle”. Let’s call it my milky sense 😉

Hoy hemos ido a un grupo de apoyo a la lactancia, que llevaba queriendo ir a uno desde que nos mudamos y nunca se terciaba. Me ha encantado conocer a otras madres de la zona, y especialmente ver a críos no tan críos mamando. Que una cosa es saberse las recomendaciones de la OMS y otra bien distinta verlo en la práctica 🙂
La mayor parte de las asistentes tambien porteamos, y hubo hasta tiempo para intercambiar bandoleras y mochilas. También me comentaron en un par de ocasiones lo mona que es la rebeca de Chloe – la hizo mi madre!
A ella le llamaron mucho la atención todos los bebés y niños, era su primera vez jeje. Aunque la mayor parte del tiempo estuvo durmiendo en su bandolera de anillas.
Mi parte favorita ha sido sin duda el que, al oir llorar a una bebé super pequeña, me daba una sensación curiosa por los pechos.. Llamémoslo mi sentido lactácnido 😉
