World Breastfeeding Week: NAK and Twursing

I spend a lot of my time these days NAK. Typically, I'm both NAK and Twursing.
If you know what this means, well, then you're probably doing it too.
For those of you who don't know, it's "nursing at keyboard" and nursing while Twittering.
I love twitter because it suits my OCD. I also got addicted to it while I was pregnant with Snapdragon and spending most of my days in a horizontal attitude as per my OB's "suggestion."

Today I would like to say thank you to those of you out there in the Twitterverse who have helped mentor me in this breastfeeding adventure. Your advice has been golden. Your support has been a blessing. I don't know how I'd have gotten past the initial soreness without your encouragement and constant barrage of anti-formula propaganda, rather, information.

Thank you.

Tomorrow will be three whole great big months of nursing Snapdragon every few hours. I didn't believe that this would be the way I'd be spending my days before he was born. I was sure I'd teach him to take a bottle and supplement with formula so that daddy could get in on the action and I'd not be so attached. But I can't imagine it being any other way now.

Thank you.

He's some 26" long and some 16lbs these days. That's 5" and 8 lbs of growth all due to this bizarre alchemy by which my hamburger becomes baby-grow-juice.
So thank you for being there tweeting at 2 AM with me and LOLing when I posted a pic of the first time i accidentally sprayed his face with milk.

Thank you for helping me to become a tweeting, twursing, blogging, NAK lactivist.
