My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Another morning of Breastfeeding!

....Continuing from yesterday.

I wake up first and then David wakes. He can read my mind. He knows I am thinking about getting out of bed and checking my e-mail.
"Mommy, I want night-nights before you get up."

Whew, I think. Today won't be the day I shrivel up! I gladly nurse my boy. There is all day to check my e-mail. Checking can wait a few minutes.


Along the same lines...

I posted a note about a Tot Shabbat song a few weeks ago with changing verse:

"I got the Shabbat feeling right in my head, right in my head, right in my head...
"I got the Shabbot feeling right in my mouth, right in my mouth, right in my mouth...
"I got the Shabbot feeling right in my ears, right in my ears, right in my ears...

I am vocally challenged so I won't sing the tune for you. David wouldn't sing it correctly at Tot Shabbat. When he got home it stuck in his mind and he has been singing this version:

"I got the Shabbat feeling right in my night-night, right in my night-night, right in my night-night...
(It gives a more meaning to the "in the mouth verse." And he laughs and laughs....)

It makes me happy that my boys can relate breastfeeding to their spiritual development. Most adults can't relate the two. I shared a story on page 137 PTM of when William was four and had similar had similar insight.

Breastfeeding is so much more than breastmilk!

I'm SO glad you had a good morning. I saw your post yesterday and just didn't know how to respond. I'm sure the thought of weaning is horrible right now, especially after so many years. It's a toll, but what a wonderful toll to take!

As hard as it it to start breastfeeding and get over the initial hurdles ( industry, commercialism, misleading websites and links, etc... ) it is as hard to let it go! I am so glad that my time has not come yet.

I hope you are doing well.

Breastfeeding is so wonderful! I don't understand why all mothers don't breastfeed. It is just the most amazing thing. I never want it to end.
