Mamas are loving our Peaceful Postpartum Online Retreat…
Something really valuable I got out of today’s readings -I am doing just what I need to for my baby today. I feel a lot of judgement from others (perceived maybe more than actual) about my 14 month old son still waking up to nurse twice a night. It seems to bother everyone – except me, the only person who actually has to get up twice with him! Both today’s reading and one of your recent blog posts about knowing what is best for our babies really helped. Sure, I’m not as rested as I could be, but I’m doing what I feel comfortable with. And as Brene Brown says, the only people whose opinions really matter fit on a one inch by one inch piece of paper! So I need to quit perceiving and internalizing judgement and focus more energy on loving and nurturing.~ Sarah M.
