February 29th. It only comes around every 4 years and this one happened during Ayden's first. That's pretty cool if you ask me!
Today was yet another great day! We practiced some side lying nursing this morning. It's good to nurse in a variety of positions because each position focuses the suction towards different ducts. The more positions you use, the more efficiently your breasts are emptied. The majority of women who suffer from plugged ducts or mastitis are usually nursing in the same position all the time. In the hospital I used the foot ball hold. Now cross cradle is our go to but side lying is nice because you can rest while you nurse. Rest sounds nice so I'd like to master that one...

Definitely a wonderful moment to remember!

and my favorite show!
In order to touch or even get a good look at your baby, the person has to actually invade your personal space which much less likely. Why is it that we respect the personal space of adults, but not children?
Even though Ayden is pushing 6 weeks (what?!?) I finally got around to taking the pictures we plan to take every month for his first year. I wish we had taken it when he was a newborn and on his 1 month birthday but I wasn't quite together yet. We shall take them on each month birthday from here on out though! It will be so fun to compare them all come his first birthday!

Tomorrow is March 1st which means Spring is on its way! It is my favorite season and I can't wait to share it with Ayden for the first time :).
Do you have any stories about strangers touching your babies?
