Oh my God! How will I handle this?
Seriously! This was the first question came into my mind when I became Mom to my little girl Nayra. As a new mother, I was scared, especially breastfeeding. I mean we all want the best for our baby, and when it comes to breastfeeding, every new mother thinks, “Will I be able to do it? Will I be able to hold her in the right position? Will there be enough supply? How will she survive when I start going to the office again?”
There were a plethora of questions running in my head just like any other mother. But thankfully, everything went well. I rejoined, used to feed her in the morning and at night. Both my mother’s ( mother and mother-in-law) guidance was always there, in fact, is still there as my daughter turned 3 but is still on breastfeeding along with proper food of course.
It’s a magical journey I tell you. Right from those tiny fingers searching for milk, to that heart linked eye contact, those cunning smiles, the strongest bond in the world, it’s all mesmerizing. You might call it a bridge connecting the mother and her kids.
Even now, when Nayra has turned 3, and I am at the stage of weaning her off, yeah! the hardest decision is yet to make; she sometimes comes to me and says in her cute voice, “Mumma, boo boo”, I just can’t refuse. Will you be able to? At least I can’t for the time being. Kids they do a different kind of emotional blackmail which we can’t escape from. Can you?
