Do you get that euphoric feeling when you nurse? I think it's a hormonal thing that causes it. I get it when I pump. During the let down I feel agitated and annoyed, but once the milk starts flowing I get this "it's alllllll good" feeling going on......lol maybe I'm bonding with my pump!
That's nice! I only get it once in awhile. Usually it's just business as usual. But what you're feeling is oxytocin--same hormone you get when you orgasm. I'm sure you all knew that though! It's the love hormone. Sometimes I get this overwhelming feeling of love toward my little baby when he nurses. And that's nice!
Joy, I get that same feeling when I am feeding him... Feel SO in love with him. Mostly I thought I wouldn't be able to BF as it was so difficult for me in the beginning that I just feel super grateful and amazed every time I feed him and it doesn't hurt!
Yes,I get it too. Its hard to describe but its like a feeling of pure contentment and a release...especially when Im engorged. I feel like a pro now at this breastfeeding thing and confident in my supply. I love when Remy makes these little cooing noises while breastfeeding. I start mimicking him and its like we are having a real conversation...in baby talk that is..lol
This is my favorite. I love when I notice that Caroline has stopped nursing and look down and she has a huge grin on her face. So cute. I always tell her mom's milk is pretty good, isn't it??
Awww my son also starts smiling and laughing except I look at him and say 'go back to nursing you little monkey!'
But yeah I love nursing. I was forced to EP for my daughter so I never got experience nursing. Now I appreciate it and love it. I do get the relieving feeling too esp when they're full and or engorged, it's like getting a massage. Speaking of, they're full now and he's sleeping, I gotta go pump yikes
