We like to make up songs and sing them to the twins.
This is my newest breastfeeding song which I swear I did not set out to make it sound like the dirtiest song ever….but when I sang it to Chicken I realized it was! Hee.
“Suck, suck and swallow
Don’t bite it!
Just suck it!
Suck, suck and swallow
And you’ll grow up big and strong
They are like hungry little animals when they breast feed. No matter how exhausted I am (and oh how I am especially since I’ve been sick now for…this is the 6th day) when I get them latched on and see their dark little eyes wide open, hear their little baby animal noises, the grunts and swallowing…well, it really is just about the best thing in the world.
I really do love breastfeeding them, even though sometimes I cry on top of their heads because I’m so tired of doing it over and over and over.
I am just waiting for the day when they consistently go 3 hours in between feeds and not the unpredictable hour and 1/2. Three hours. Ah, that would be nice.
But they are gaining weight and growing so big.
We are so happy.
