Soon I’ll be holding my second nursling, starting a brand new adventure in the world of breastfeeding. To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and (hopefully!) Lily’s birth, I would like to share this poem that I wrote last fall along with a picture of Abby that still takes my breath away.Remembering You snuggle close in the crook of my arm and latch, relax, and eat. I watch your eyes, as they drift slowly off. Milk-drunk, you drift to sleep. If I could hold you–this way–forever I’d not need Paradise. But tomorrow –and with it, an older you–I dare not try to fight. So I’ll snuggle you close, hold you a while longer. For just a little bit more. For the days are short when I can nurse and cuddle your sleeping form.
What are the things that you’ll remember most from the tiny infant days?
