(our very own corn! - a first for us)
This morning, out of the blue, our fifteen year old son asked, "Mom, do you know the one and only one thing to eat that could sustain a person?" - I thought for some time, trying to think of what food contains a lot of water, protein, etc... and didn't come up with anything.
the answer: breast milk
Wow! To imagine that is is so rich in nutrients that an adult human could live on it. (It did get me worrying a little, though, if there was ever a food crisis where we lived and I was still lactating... a selfish thought I know.)
This little fact reassured me as well as a bit of a better night's sleep (I think she nursed "just" three times last night) that Emmy is getting both physical and emotional benefits from breastfeeding for now.
