Breastfeeding Awareness Month - Weaning with Love

View the original post on my blog, Mama Chirps!

Breastfeeding Awareness Month is here! As I found via the Blogging Mama's Network, A Mama Collective is hosting a link-up for the occasion. For my Breastfeeding Awareness Month post, I know I could go on and on about the benefits and other wonderful reasons to breastfeed. Instead, I wrote a little something dedicated to my (currently weaning) son, because I chose to breastfeed out of love for him.

When you were new it was all you needed. It was your comfort, your safe place when everything else was hazey. You kept me up at night for it, but there was no one else I'd rather stay up with. It helped you grow, and you learned to play. But it was always there when you needed to take a break. You even learned to eat the food that I eat. But it was still your favorite. When my milk dried up, you weren't at all upset. You happily took your sippy cup instead. You became independent so quickly. It was so bittersweet, but I was proud of you. We've shared this for 13 months, love. I wanted you to have it until you were ready to let go. Now, you only need it on those rare nights when you can't fall asleep. It seems as if I've accomplished my goal. It may be over soon, and I'll miss it in the days to come. However, nothing will ever erase these memories of our special bond.

It hits a really tender spot, knowing your time breastfeeding your baby, who is actually now a... toddler , is almost up. But I'm thankful we're weaning in a natural and effortless way. Of course, I do have a newborn to look forward to breastfeeding in December. She'll be here in 18-20 weeks! My son couldn't have weaned under better circumstances.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
