How I cherish these moments. Especially because I know my milk supply is dwindling (common in your first trimester and throughout pregnancy) and I am not sure how long L'il B will put up with it. He seems to be happy enough most days, but occasionally gets a bit frustrated with the lack of flow- especially in the morning, which used to be his biggest and most satisfying feed. I am so grateful for this intimate and complex relationship. It truly feels like an act of love, devotion, trust and deep nurture. One day, when this stage in our lives is complete, I know I will look back with no regrets, and a sense of accomplishment and pride that I persevered through the good times and the bad.
