In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, I’m sharing from our 100 Words Project every day.
I was told to wean after 4 weeks of nursing with a perfect latch due a staph infection. Completely ignoring my pediatrician, I sought the advice ofwomen – breastfeeding experts, mothers, my nursing sisters. I knew in my gut what was right for my baby. My son has never had anything other than mama’s milk and I have loved every moment of this journey as we continue with no end in sight. Milk breath, giggles, comforting num nums. Nursing my baby has changed how I view my body and is a constant reminder to slow down and enjoy this moment.
