In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, I’m sharing from our 100 Words Project every day.
A story from Ann:
I felt pure bliss when I looked at that beauty. Still wet and disoriented from emerging from darkness and struggling for breath. When the room was finally still, we had our chance. Oh! That is what nursing a baby feels like! Pure bliss. Bliss soon turned to terror as the beauty couldn’t sustain a strong latch and soon got hungry, tired, and frustrated. The feeling was mutual my beauty. That was the hardest week of our lives. Tongue-tied. Snip. Some tears. That quick snip solved all our woes, mostly. Two years later, there have been struggles, but overall, pure bliss.
