World Breastfeeding Week - End of Breastfeeding

Thanks for hopping over from A Baby On Board and welcome to our post for the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt Day 5 Extended Breastfeeding we have over £700 worth of breastfeeding and baby goodies up for grabs including prizes from More4Mums providing a set of 'Hot Milk' Lingerie, a signed hardback limited edition copy of Milky Moments and a £30 voucher from Milk Chic.  Full details of the Grand Prize can be found here and all entries to be completed via the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post. 

As a collaborative blog, with over a decade of experience, we are all at and have been at different stages, so we thought we would take a leaf from our very own Georgina over at Kohl Mama and put it into words that rhyme. 

A Breastfeeding Journey

4 weeks it's all still new
It's amazing what mummy's milk can do
Watching as you drift to sleep
Cluster feeding as you approach a leap
I still feel we're on a cloud
As mummy's milk is doing me proud

Cluster feeding was the worst

I felt my boobs were fit to burst
But you started to wake once in the night
At the end of the tunnel there was definite light

Three months is when the fun began,

3 months old you found your hands,
Now you look, you smile and giggle,
You grab to feed, then squirm and wriggle

6 months comes, a hand briefly round my finger

At my breast you no longer linger
Lots of things for you to see around,
Peace and quiet is no longer found
A cheeky smile, a flash of teeth
I run my finger along your cheek

At 10 months old you need me less
You eat so much food, and make such a mess
So I cherish these sweet milky moments in time
When it's just you and me, just me and mine

They say milk past one is just for fun

You have all you need but you still want mum
In the night just you and me
Always my baby, my VIP

Look at you growing fast

Those infant days are in the past
Now you request milk with words
It really doesn't seem so absurd
To feed you until the day does come
When your final drink from mum is done

Now it's over, I'm a little bit sad

But its etched in our hearts the time we had

  1. The link to the rafflecopter says I have no permissions to view. It seems to be misformed, sadly I would love to enter as collecting the points

  2. That's lovely - it really makes you appreciate the bond that breastfeeding gives - I am excited to breastfeed for the first time ever with my last baby BabaBumpNo3 due in less than 7 weeks.......
