#Repost @lc0903 with permission ・・・ Everything I need is right here-
For 11 months,
I have sustained,
provided you with all the comfort you have ever sought through nursing you.
But it is you my sweet baby boy that has provided me with things I didn't know I needed.
You see, you taught me to love myself.
Never was it your responsibility to set me free from so many demons but in loving you,
the purest love given,
I realized I needed self-acceptance and to love myself.
I needed to not feel shame over my body.
I carried, birthed and nurse you all with my body.
The shame fades away.
The healing takes ahold.
And just like that,
you set my innate maternal instincts a blaze.
My body is beautiful because it made you.
You are everything I have ever wanted.
This is motherhood for a nursing mother and child.
This is what it looks like to nurse a beautiful sweet baby boy for 11 months.
the eyes, and
the warmth of our skin touching.
Intertwining our hearts and bodies together.
We are mother and child nursing.
You've curled up into a fetal position for me to hold you.
Settling in for a fourth meal at only noon time.
In the past I would ask,
"why wont you take a bottle?"
Now I know,
I know you needed this time with me
Well, you too knew that I needed this time with you.
Everything I need is truly right here, now. -LC
