I miss breastfeeding my daughter. Maybe that’s why I’ve chose to start a career in lactation; not only do I simply want to be around nursing mothers, I want to help other women have the same sort of positive breastfeeding experience that I had. Nursing my girl was something I wasn’t ready to let go of for two and a half years.
I’m fortunate to spend a lot of time around my sister and her 9 month old son. They are rockstars and are still nursing on demand. Seeing them connect through nursing makes me wistful for the breastfeeding years with my daughter. My sister is meeting my nephew’s needs in this really awesome way. I found myself today, after spending the day with them, longing for that breastfeeding relationship again with my daughter.
