Welcome to The Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival! This post was written as part of The Breastfeeding Cafe's Carnival. For more info on the Breastfeeding Cafe, go to www.breastfeedingcafe.wordpress.com. For more info on the Carnival or if you want to participate, contact Claire at clindstrom2 {at} gmail {dot} com. Today's post is things we’d like to share with our nurslings about what it means for us to breastfeed. Please read the other blogs in today's carnival listed below and check back for more posts July 18th through the 31st!

  What would I tell my little ones about what it means for me to nurse? 

I would tell Isis that I nearly went crazy to do what I thought would be best for her. I know from my experience that she is so important to me that I will battle any obstacle to take care of her in the best way possible and that I would give anything to be able to make everything perfect for her forever.

I would tell Orion that those moments of holding him close and bonding with him were some of the most magical moments of my life. I will always treeasure him that way, even when I can no longer hold him close and nurse him. 

I would tell both my kids that long after they are too big for me to hold against my chest and long after they have outgrown nursing and cuddling close to mommy, that my arms will always be open and they will always be close to my heart. Breastfeeding put them close to my heart, but they will always stay there.  


 Here are more posts by the Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival participants! Check back because more will be added throughout the day.

Thanks so much for your thoughts on breastfeeding--I have loved reading so many versions of what I feel for nursing and for my children.
