This picture depicts so wonderfully a loving father watching his baby feed at mom’s breast.

gillian-doanIt’s unusual to see a picture of a woman being serenaded while she breastfeeds her baby. Gillian Doan shared this picture, and I like the family togetherness that it shows. On her Facebook site, Gillian said this was a “special family time at the cottage.” She said her baby, who was 14 months old when the picture was made, was a good example that “Preemies can learn to breastfeed, too.”
