Don’t you just love feeding your baby?
It’s like the crazy world stops for a moment and it’s just the two of you.
She sees you looking, and stops sucking just for a second, to give you a big toothy grin that melts your heart to mush.
Such sweet moments that (depending on your baby’s nursing personality) can be over waaa-aaa-aaay too soon.
This week I was browsing around on Pinterest and stumbled upon some gorgeous soul-squeezing photos.
I was struck with a lightening-bolt thought: That would be such an awesome place to nurse.
So, just for today, we’re going to do a little daydreaming.
Regardless as to whether you’re breastfeeding or balancing a bottle, here are 12 places that scream serenity.
(But quietly. After all, there’s a snoozy baby in your arms!)
No. 1: This beach. At this moment.
Lounge on those comfy cushions, my friend. Let the breeze comb out your hair and breathe in the salty goodness of the sea. Just in case things get a tad cool, bring along a favorite cotton muslin swaddler to keep him at the perfect temperature.
No. 2: Soaking in the zen sun.
You know what’s missing? A china cup of Milkmaid Tea. …and a panda…. …and the bamboo fighting scene from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in the background…
No. 3: Surrounded by all these books.
If this were my home, *laughing hysterically* this library would be my favorite room in the castle. I would slap my sweet little badonkadonk in that comfy brown chair, snuggle that breastfeeding cuteness, and feel the room’s intelligence seep into my brain.
Osmosis. It works.
No. 4: Gazing over the Mediterranean.
I’d give myself ten minutes in this glorious spot before a mega-diaper-blowout ruined it forever. Reality bites.
No. 5: Snuggled up inside this ball.
Afraid of heights? Not to worry. If it falls, you’ll just bounce your way to the ocean like James and the Giant Peach.
No. 6: Lounging on this giant hammock.
A latte on the right, a happily eating baby on the left…
Heaven. On. Earth.
No. 7: Sitting on this park bench.
This, my friend, requires a seriously awesome baby/mama selfie. Learn how to make iphone photo shoots look like NY studio work.
No. 8: Drinking in this big Montana sky.
Did his beloved ‘lil snuggler spotted horse fall under the bed again? Or is that it? Riding off towards the mountains with Woody?
No. 9: Stargazing on this platform.
THIS is what I call camping.
No. 10: Feeling the breeze on this bridge.
Jungle “music” is not a snoozing babe’s kind of lullaby. Don’t forget to bring along his never-leave-home-without-it Sleep Sheep to drown out the neighborhood primate disputes. The Croods AGAIN?
No. 11: Inside this treehouse. Anywhere inside this treehouse.
It’s no Swiss Family Robinson, but since Disney frowns on treehouse squatting, *clearing throat* it’s the next best thing. In your FACE Berensteins!
No. 12: Here in Neverland.
With a pocket full of pixie dust, of course. (Just in case…)
