You will never be this loved again. So on those days when you are feeling stressed out, touched out, and depleted, just remember that you will never be this loved again. One day you will long for their affection. So choose a soft voice, choose parenting group hands, choose love.
You nursed pretty much straight through the night last night, as I sort of drifted in and out of being fully awake. You’re going through a growth spurt. When you switch sides I feel the sting of letdown. Sometimes you nurse eagerly and gulp down the milk.
Sometimes you become upset because you don’t want milk. Or you don’t want the fast flow of my over-active letdown. Sometimes you just want to lay in the semi-dark and nurse peacefully while your little dark blue eyes stare at my face and your little feet kick the still-soft skin of my belly which was your former home. Sometimes you want to comfort nurse.
