“A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. ” – Grantly Dick-Read
Breastfeeding can be a journey full of highs and lows, sometimes it comes easily and sometimes you have to work hard to keep going. Every new mom begins with that feeling of insecurity, what to do, how to do it, is it right, is baby getting enough; it can feel like such an uphill climb. Before you know it, they’re plumping up and suddenly too big to fit so nicely on your arms or in your lap! Breastfeeding is such a unique time of closeness, treasure it as you watch your baby grow. Whether you’re just getting the hang of nursing or getting ready to wean, celebrate this special time with your little one and all of your hard work sheltering and nurturing them.
