This is the one and only picture I have of Ella breastfeeding. I wish I would have taken more. I love this picture. Ah, it makes my heart hurt that I couldn't nurse her longer.

Wean Me Gently

Postby _Tawny » Wed Oct 08, 2008 4:41 am

I know this has been posted on the boards before but I just love it and wanted to post it somewhere it wouldn't get lost:

Wean me Gently

I know I look so big to you,
maybe I seem too big for the needs I have.
But no matter how big we get,
we still have needs that are important to us.
I know that our relationship is growing and changing,
but I still need you.
I need your warmth and closeness,
especially at the end of the day when we snuggle up in bed.
Please don't get too busy for us to nurse.
I know you think I can be patient,
or find something to take the place of nursing;
a book, a glass of something,
but nothing can take your place when I need you.
Sometimes just cuddling with you,
having you near me is enough.
I guess I am growing and becoming independent,
but please be there.
This bond we have is so strong and important to me,
please do not break it abruptly.
Wean me gently,

Because I am your mother,
and my heart is tender.

One of the few times I was able to tandem nurse the twins. I switched to only pumping when they were about 3 weeks old because Mallory wouldn't nurse and still wish I had the nursing bond with them. I suppose I could attempt nursing them again but I'm in such a good routine with work. :cry:

Here I was with DD1. The cat always joined in it seemed. This was right after she finished. I nursed her for 11 months and loved every minute of it!

Changing Grace

By Amanda N. Maurer


I've lost my grace, little one.
Since your arrival, my shoulders have slumped,
My hair is uncombed, and I cannot be engaged
In polite conversation because my tired mind
Lacks the energy and my gaze perpetually wonders
Away from the speaker to you.

But what is grace?
I observe another new mother, and she is beautiful.
Social graces were important to me once,
But not so much anymore.

My shoulders are curved in a warm and nurturing embrace
As you nurse contentedly at my breast.
My eyes radiate a newfound, unconditional love
That leaves my entire being aglow.
The pace of life has slowed until time stands still
And I remember the simple pleasures of a perfect day,
Sun shining on my face, smiling and laughing with someone I love.

Thank you for reminding me what is truly beautiful in life.
I am ready now to give all that I am to you, and
All too soon
We will both walk tall together.
