When he’s particularly hungry and ready for a feeding, my little boy will give me an excited “mmm” when he latches on…kind of like someone who takes their first bite of a cheeseburger after a long diet. Around 3 months he started a bit where he’d unlatch so I’d look down only to find him staring up at me – I’d say ‘hello there’ and then he’d flash me a huge smile and go back to feeding as if he just wanted to check in. Around month 4 he started sweetly stroking my arm while nursing. I love it all!
What does your LO do while nursing that makes your heart melt or cracks you up?

When she was really young she’d start gasping in excitement, like almost snorting, when she realized it was nursing time, even if she had just eaten an hour ago.
Now at 3 months if I look down and smile at her she’ll usually get distracted and give me a big smile and move her head around a bit until she remembers ‘oh right, super hungry’.

DS is a kicker and I am constantly having one breast kicked while he nurses on the other one. The sweet thing he does is either drapes his whole arm over possessively or recently he places his hand on my breast and kind of flutters his fingers over and over (like he is patting with just his fingers, palm remains in place) like he’s testing to see how much milk is left.

when my little munchikin falls asleep while nursing, he often gives me a huge open-mouthed smile (while still latched on lol) in his sleep. it’s so precious…i’m dying to know what he’s dreaming about!
also, when he’s really hungry, he kind of gives a happy sigh with each breath. he sounds so content 🙂

love this!!! I’ve seen many of these same things (not the kicking or cartwheels though)happen through the months and it is so special to keep remembering. The funny one for me was when baby bit or pulled on me while nursing and it was so sore, it was the first time I had scolded her. I said, NO! Don’t bite mama. She looked shocked and rolled off and turned her back toward me. I thought it was like she was saying, “Fine then. We need some space!”
