Random Mom Thought #48

One of the absolute worst moments I’ve ever had as a mother was when my son not only refused to nurse in the middle of the night, but screamed, kicked, shoved and hit me each time I tried nursing him for an hour.

I can only assume his tummy was upset because he still held onto me like a baby koala, fists clenched to my shirt and everything…but that doesn’t mean the severe and devastating feelings of rejection and sudden worthlessness as a mom aren’t very real. And very raw.
