A poem for WBW

We are celebrating World Breastfeeding Week! ( August 1st-8th 2013)
A Frugi mum has written a lovely poem about her feelings and experience of breast feeding;

Why I Love Breastfeeding

Brand new, pink-faced, love-filled, first feeds.

Sleepy-eyed, getting-light, lazy, early morning feeds.

Eyes locked, mouth-full smiles, cheeky, everyday feeds.

Fast flowing, overflowing, full-tummied, late feeds.

Cuddled up, on a bench, breezy great-outdoor feeds.

Wide-mouthed-rooting, rhythmic-gulping, milk-guzzling, frenzied feeds.

Head-twisting, breast-stretching, arms waving, distracted feeds.

Bottom-wriggling, top-tugging, breast-bashing, hungry feeds.

Cry-soothing, gently rocking, tight cwtching, comfort feeds.

Sleep-inducing, deep-drinking, tummies touching, horizontal feeds.

Slow and steady; quietly snuggled; dusky-evening, dream-feeds.

Star-gazing, moon-bathing, peaceful, silent-night feeds (my favourite)
