Grateful For...

Trying to amuse housebound Bubble!
Hilariously, it is now Saturday and I still haven't managed to post more regularly.  Despite Cherie's nifty blogging tip, I haven't managed to follow her advice.  It's just been too tricky this week.  Bubble has chicken pox and is feeling very miserable!  Consequently she wants to nurse all the time.  She has pox on the soles of her feet which I think must be bothering her because she wants to be lifted all the time and is only content on my lap nursing.  She's relentless.  If my boob could pack its bags and fly to Spain, I think it would!!

Regardless of that fact, and rather unusually, I am grateful for Bubble still breastfeeding.  I know it's a lifestyle choice and there are times I wish I had my body and my independence back but I simply cannot fault the comfort that breastfeeding can offer Bubble especially in this circumstance.  I simply don't know how I would soothe her better.  If sitting on the sofa watching Finding Nemo on repeat with her continuously on the breast alleviates her suffering of that horrible itchiness, then so be it.

I am so grateful that my body can do that for her.



  1. Oh poor little Bubble, chicken pox is just awful :o( So lovely that she has the comfort of her Mama right there when she needs it. Well done to you Cheryl. I do hope she recovers quickly and with minimal blisters, poor poppet xo

  2. Poor little chicken.
    Hope she feels much better soon.

  3. Hope she feels better. Being able to breastfeed when they are sick is a real blessing.

  4. Sounds like life is pretty full on at your house right now. Hope the little one feels MUCH better soon and you get some more spare time.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my Blog and for the lovely comment you left. You are very fortunate to be able to breastfeed for so long. The longest I ever managed was about three months.
    I guess you are pretty well acquainted with all the charecters from Nemo by now then?? LOL. Hope Bubble is better soon.

  6. Breastfeeding is the best for sick kids. I remember times like that and I remember wondering, too, how other mums get through it who don't breastefeed.

  7. Clever body! Lucky baby!

    Don't worry about not posting daily. I used to do it 6 days, scheduling my posts just as Cherie recommends and then I got behind on my 'stack' of posts and now I am just playing catch up. I don't think it matters how often you post, just that you enjoy it when you do.

    Hope Bubble's chicken pox is gone soonest! x


Thanks for dropping by! I'll be sure to pop over to you too sometime soon :o)
