Flesh on flesh creates heat... and flesh on flesh creates sweat. Lots of sweat. Sweat matting their hair, sweat pooling beneath my breasts, sweat co-mingling with breast milk and making both of us a sticky, icky mess. And let me tell you, babies that are hot and sweaty are fussy eaters. We took to breastfeeding in the bath!
No more. A couple of days ago we installed a unit in our living room, just in time for record 103 degree weather. It may have been hot and sticky outside, but it was some cool, sweat-free eating on our couch.
