Beyond Babyhood

What happens when you meet child’s needs with empathy and compassion?

When we tune into our children and listen to their needs and the messages they are sending us, we can often avert the power struggles.

A sling, a cuddle and some nourishing mummy milk, was exactly what this one needed on the way home from a walk today.

I felt the familiar pull to put him off, to wrap him on my back or just plain refuse and make him walk home. Because although my soul filled with the joys of spring, my limbs were weary too.

But I took the path of least restistance, he was sleepy & he rested. Then oxytocin buzz helped me power through to home.

Breastfeeding beyond babyhood has its own unique challengs and often, parents don’t know another family making similar choices. Reach out if you’d like to be connected with other parents like you. ❤️
