Welcome to the March Carnival of Breastfeeding! This month we are talking about the joys of breastfeeding. I believe the most precious parts of breastfeeding are worthy of poetry. While I’m not much of a poet, I found that I was unable to write this post unless it was formatted as a series of breastfeeding poems. While I hope you can relate to some of what I say here, I actually urge you to write your own poems about breastfeeding. So far, these are the most inspirational breastfeeding poems I have found, and I would love to add yours to the list!
Please see below for the other carnival participants’ posts.

who ensure the baby mamas
get enough rest,
enough love and support.
This family is creating
a strong foundation
for each other
and for their child
who will learn the importance of helping others,
and being loved.
Baby nursing in a sling.
There’s something about a baby being tightly and warmly wrapped,
held by its mother to her breast
that feels instinctively primitive.
Cozy and sweet.
A universal language spoken by mothers and babies.
