Breastfeeding is Not a Gentle Art

Pinching, pulling, grabbing, pushing, scratching, stretching back while still vacuum-sealed onto the nipple - Babies Are Not Gentle Creatures when it comes to nourishment.

Tangent: gazing out the window while pondering the wording, I noticed that the windy day is having some fun with the greenery - the wind is swooping up under the glorytree, the tree ferns and the leafed-up wisteria, as if it is choreographing everyting:
"And - lift! hold, shiver back down.. tremble, quiver, still....shiver and LIFT! wave, wave.. alright, FRENZY!!!

I'm easily amused :)
