Trust is an integral part of the mother/baby relationship. The trust of the baby that her parents will tend to her needs and the trust of the parent, specifically the mother, to follow her heart and body in caring for the child.
After birth babies crave the closeness they had with their mothers in the womb. Breast-feeding, babywearing, and co-sleeping all fulfill this craving. Following our natural instincts as mothers produces happy healthy babies. So listen to your heart and your baby and stay together.
I wrote this poem while nursing my four month old in our family bed. Enjoy!
