Sitting with my baby in my lap watching him drift off to sleep as he nurses...this too shall pass.
Crying because I have too much foremilk and it's hurting my baby's tummy...this too shall pass.
Watching my 13 month old squeal with a huge grin and coming running across the room as I lift my shirt...this too shall pass (ok, that might come back in a few years, but not in regard to me...)
Frustration with my baby being distracted and not eating enough...this too shall pass.
Calming every tear with cuddles and Mama's milk...this too shall pass.
Being the only thing my baby needs to survive...this too shall pass.
Being the only one who my baby will let put him to sleep...this too shall pass.
Waking 6 times in 8 hours to night nurse a baby who's reverse cycling...this too shall pass.
Waking to see my baby unlatch and roll over to cuddle into his Papa's arm...this too shall pass.
Holding my breath at each doctor's appointment to see if he's gaining weight...this too shall pass.
Being forced/able to rest every few hours as my newborn and I figure this nursing thing out...this too shall pass.
Watching milk go everywhere as I make my baby laugh while he's nursing...this too shall pass.
Sore nipples, feeling "touched out"...this too shall pass
Memories, relationship, knowing you're doing what's best for your baby...now that will never pass.
Hold on to each wonderful moment, it will go too quickly. Hang in there through each challenge, it won't last forever.
