We have this special connection that I would like to attribute to breastfeeding . Through breastfeeding I have been able to sustain your life for as long as you have been alive. I have been able to comfort you all throughout the night. It was the only way I could ever get you to shut your eyes.
Breastfeeding you has been a big part, probably the biggest of our lives. Even before you came home from the hospital you were latched right on. baby & boob is pretty much all we knew .
I'm not sure how we will be able to cope now that the time has come, for us to end this chapter, but dear baby, know that our connection will always live on. I may not be your sole source of nutrition anymore, but I will always know how to comfort you, love you, cuddle you, after all I am your mother.
This transition is probably harder on me than it is on you. You are growing up so fast and one day out of the blue you didn't want to latch. You are telling me you're ready to let this part of us go, but only when you're ready because I will never tell you no.
