We are coming to the end of World Breastfeeding week and I would love to send all the waves of gratitude to all the parents/childcare workers/medical staff who take the time to support other parents while they learn the new cues of their baby. To read into and bond when a baby wants to be fed takes time and effort, so thank you:
Thank you for taking the time to breastfeed.
Thank you for changing your diet to help both your own digestion and your babes.
Thank you for reading the labels before warming the bottle.
Thank you for encouraging skin to skin.
Thank you for asking for a milk donation.
Thank you for increasing your water and caloric intake.
Thank you for taking the time to explore your feelings of defeat and euphoria.
Thank you for allowing your baby to explore solids when they’re ready and still giving them milk.
Thank you for asking for help.
How do you love and support your baby around feedings?
