Rooting While at Rest

With your little
birdie mouth

And your tiny
pucker lips

You root and turn
and tip and search

For what you
seek - the nips!

And in this dark
and dreamy land

Slumbering cozy
in our nest

The whole outside
world is forgotten

While you and I
snuggle down in rest.

  1. So beautiful. We need more Poets in the birth movement. Write more, that's an order ! Love Gloria Lemay, Vancouver

  2. Lovely!

    I just love birth/breastfeeding poetry. Love it.

  3. I love that, so sweet, can totally relate with my little fella in our bed ;)

  4. The thought of exactly this got me through a very long and frustrating second pregnancy. It's one of the most perfect things in the world.

  5. Awww! This made me a little weepy - I've been blessed to nurse 3 children (one self-weaned at 2, one at 4 and my youngest is still going strong at 23 months). Rooting is just precious. Thanks for putting words to it. My firstborn is about to have her first. I'm sending this to her :)

  6. Awwww! These are definitely precious moments. I used to take pictures of my daughter while she was sleeping too. But now she's already four years old, how time flies! Enjoy being a parent!

  7. Hi,

    Love this picture...precious. I would also love to write an article on Baby Sign Language for your site if you are interested? Just let me know and I can give you more details.

  8. Misty - we would gladly welcome guest articles on Baby Sign - a wonderful, baby-friendly means of communication that we (so far) do not have an 'expert' writer on the DrMomma staff for. Please email peacefulparents @ and we can discuss details.

  9. I love that poem! I was wondering, "Who wrote that?" while I read through it. . . . . I'm not surprised. ;-) Lovely.
