... a bossom for a pillow!
Zach loves sleeping across my chest. If I want to make sure he has a long lie in it is the best way by far. I get to stay snuggled in bed reading whatever book I can reach and Zach gets to feel safe, secure and sleepy!
Wills was the same when he was little. No early morning get ups for this mamma! Even now Wills is still a good sleeper.
Breastfeeding has been a god send for those days when we had a difficult night full of wake ups or feeds or teething troubles. Latch on and hunker down for a few more hours of sleepy warmth in bed! Delicious!!
That's not to say that I don't sometimes find it frustrating being pinned to the bed when I really want to get up instead. Not wanting to wake the babies and feeling trapped. It passes though, that frustrating feeling. Especially when I remember the mantra I read somewhere that keeps me calm and patient as a mum:
"this too shall pass"
and then I take a few deep breaths and remember how lucky I am to have this time with my children. And I find something interesting or inspiring on my phone to read or watch or just snuggle down and have a bit more sleep!
Breastfeeding makes my life easier in so many ways. Long lie-ins is just one way!
