A Comfortable Silence


We had been sitting on the back steps for the last half hour, with not a word between us. Neither of us was concerned over what the other was thinking. We already knew. The power within our silence was astounding! Never in our relationship had I felt that close to him, like we were totally whole. I was thoroughly amazed.

A Breast Too Far?


A few months ago, while at a La Leche League meeting, we were discussing the advantages of breastmilk. We went around the room and each of us shared one way that we found breastfeeding helped our babies or us. When it was my turn, I said that I felt that it was easier to comfort a breastfed baby than a formula fed baby. Another mother challenged this statement.

"What do you mean by easier?" she demanded.

"Well, I mean that I don't have to warm up a bottle or spend time mixing the formula, I just pull up my shirt and latch him on."
