The Perfect Latch

The most amazing thing happened today. Little Man had a perfect latch. I mean the stuff breastfeeding literature would die for. Lips flanged out like a pro.

Just this past weekend I was contemplating asking my lactation consultant about his latch. It feels right and he transfers milk perfectly but it has never looked exactly like it is supposed to. I was starting to think it never would and that was okay.

And then he surprises me.

It is like his own little way of telling me, “Hey mom, all that work we’ve done, so worth it.”

Don’t ever give up. There are so many moments like this that I will always treasure that almost didn’t happen. Little Man has been such a trooper every step of the way. He is so amazing.
