Nursing a child is a powerful thing; the tender touches, the warm rush of oxytocin, all those stolen moments between mother and child. You are nourishing a tiny being and they nourish you as well when they gaze into your eyes, when they give you a tiny smile, when they drift off to sleep, safe in mama’s arms.
I find this picture simply beautiful. Her dark hair, her tattoos, the brilliant colors, the sweet little baby, the pure, organic act of nursing. This photo brings me a feeling of peace. I hope it does the same for you.
