* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Wean Me Gently a poem

Post by nichola on Sun Jan 27, 2008 9:56 pm

Wean Me Gently By Cathy Cardall

I know I look so big to you.

Maybe I look too big for the needs I have.

But No matter how big we get,

We still have needs that are important to us.

I know that our relationship is growing and changing,

But I still need you. I need your warmth and closeness.

Especially at the end of the day

When we snuggle in bed.

Please don't get too busy for us to nurse.

I know you think I can be patient

Or find something to take the place of nursing,

A book , a glass of something.

But nothing can take your place when I need you.

Sometimes just cuddling with you,

Having you near me is enough.

I guess I am growing and becoming more independent.

But please be there.

This bond we have is so strong and so important to me

Please don't break it abruptly.

Wean me gently,

Because I am your mother

And my heart is tender.

:aww:

I am glad everyone has enjoyed this poem.

I first read it when Emily was a baby and it still makes me cry whenever I read it.

I thought it would be appreciated on here!

Tell us about yourself : People who have kids by more than 3 different men are SLAGS. They don't give a shit about the welfare of their children, otherwise they would be keeping their bloody legs shut and creating a STABLE environment for their kids, either in a stable relationship or as a single mother - because single mothers are perfectly capable of being fantastic parents. If you want to sleep around use some fucking contraception until you are sure your partner is in it for the long haul, it is not fucking difficult. Kids need stability - they don't need a succession of men coming in and out of their life.
