As I sat breastfeeding Noble Boy while reading blogs on my iPhone (as you do), I briefly averted my eyes to gaze at his nearly-asleep face by the glow of the screen. And it hit me; it’s not a deep desire to nurse my child until he naturally weans himself that keeps me going —  it’s Steve Jobs. Without that hand-held miracle device, I may have gotten bored with the whole affair a few months ago. As it is, I’m happy to carry on for as long as he wants, so long as I can look at my iPhone over his head.

    Wish I had an iphone back when I was nursing. Reading books is harder!

    Brilliant! Makes me wonder if I had an I-phone when Madame was little I may have had more success with BFing as I struggled to sit still long enough! ;-)

  6. I’m sure Steve Jobs would be delighted to hear that he has done so much to promote breastfeeding…..

    Perhaps that’s why Apple overtook Microsoft in market cap yesterday?!

    haha….I know exactly what you mean…if only I had my iphone slightly earlier….any excuse to play childish games although I think my son would request one to play with whilst he was feeding. ( he’s far too grown up for his age!) ;0)

  9. Ah, that’s what I need! I’m stuck always trying to balance a laptop. :) But I upgraded to a MacBook Pro with a lighted keyboard so I can type one-handed in the dark.
