We are rounding the corner on Quatro's 4 month birthday, and I am still breastfeeding. This is amazing, because it is longer than I breastfed all of the other three combined.

Of course it also means I am in unchartered territory, at least for me. And as every breastfeeding mom will agree, there are endless opportunities to second guess your ability to adequately feed your infant.

I have found myself doing just this, continuously. Is he getting enough food? Why is he pulling off? Should I supplement with formula? When do I know he's getting enough food during the day so I can help push him to sleep through the night? It's endless!

And then the other day reality hit when I was photographing. Do you see how chubby this little guy is? He must be getting enough food! Why am I always second guessing myself? Look at those rolls! See those cheeks! Check out that double chin! How about those thighs!

Clearly, I need'nt underestimate my ability to feed him.

  1. This is amazing! I am so proud of you for nursing him so long. I know you wanted to be able to do that with the others. Quatro looks are doing a wonderful job! Cheers! Ashley
