“Three weeks ago I became a mother….
I still can’t believe it. When the doctor placed baby girl on my chest I was speechless. Even with her right in front of my eyes I could not believe I had given birth to something so beautiful. I was instantly in love- a love I had never experienced.
And for baby girl- well baby girl was hungry. As soon as she got on my chest she started searching for her next meal. I had no idea what was going on but she began nudging herself over to my boob to start breastfeeding. Apparently I didn’t get the memo about newborns and how they can come out instinctively knowing how to breastfeed. How amazing is that ?! Instantly our bond became even deeper because not only did I grow then birth this beautiful creation but I was still her nourishment in the world.
I would love to say that the last three weeks of breastfeeding has been as beautiful as that moment but that wouldn’t be the truth.
➖Breastfeeding is hard
➖Breastfeeding takes up much of your time
➖Breastfeeding keeps you up at all night
I could go on and that’s only from 3 weeks experience but breastfeeding is a blessing.
I feel honored to be able to share this precious bond with my baby girl. I don’t know how long I will be able to breastfeed hopefully 6 months maybe a year. Either way I’ll take the bad with the good and enjoy my time with baby girl because these are the moments we will never get back.
