For Amanda, popularly known as @coldcupoftea in Instagram, she describes holding a child while breastfeeding as like holding your own tiny map of bones, recognizing your own scent through the baby’s skin, and not being able to

live without the part of you that now lives outside.

The way she looks far away, like in a dreamland of her own, it seems like she is trying to etch the feeling of her baby’s suckles in her mind forever. And why not? Babies grow up fast. But this feeling of your baby pressed onto your chest is one to cherish forever.
