Grateful for nursing

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.

That is amazing nursing dedication, Nikki! I'm in the YW presidency in our ward and had to tell the others that since I'll be nursing my baby I'll be missing camp next year. It was hard (especially since I couldn't go this year because of bed rest/pregnancy).

Marcy-
Nursing is so important to me. And I think even more so this time since she is my last.

I remember when I went to YW camp, there were babies there with the leaders. One year there was three babies. The girls just loved passing them around! It's too bad that's changed. :/

I'm so excited for you though!
