I am grateful to exclusively nurse my baby. While prepping to visit family, I didn't have to worry about bottles or formula or clean drinking water to mix it with. Three and a half months ago when Biscuit was born and in the NICU and I was pumping 8 times a day to prepare for nursing, I thought the day would never come when I could just latch her on. When I was still pumping because she was tongue-tied and lip-tied and we were waiting on the insurance company to approve surgery, I was sure this day would never come.
But it did. And I am so grateful.
