Do you know what that number means?
It is the amount of days that I have been breastfeeding. Non stop…
First a newborn,
then a toddler nursing throughout a pregnancy,
then a newborn and a toddler,
then a toddler and a little kid throughout a pregnancy,
then a newborn, a toddler and a little kid,
then the little kid got big and turned five and weaned…
then back to a toddler and a little kid,
then two little kids nursing throughout a pregnancy,
then another turned 5 and weaned,
then I was left with a little kid nursing and still pregnant,
then a newborn and a big kid,
then the big kid weaned and I just had a toddler…
and now she is a little kid and still loves her “maju”
If I use a conservative number and say that in average over the 3 780 days that I have been nursing, I have nursed 4 hours a day during that time. Nursing newborns, tandem nursing, triandem nursing, nursing for nourishment, nursing to sleep, nursing for comfort, nursing through sickness and nursing on normal days just because…
I will have already spent more than 15 000 hours breastfeeding.
Pretty amazing isn’t it?
