My Rainbow Nursling: Healing From Infant Loss

By guest blogger Kayce

I recently gave birth to my third baby girl, Samara.  I’m twenty seven years old and my girls are 7 and 3 months.  My middle daughter, Emma Blyss, would be turning 4 this year but she now resides in heaven. She passed away suddenly and completely unexpected on May 12, 2012. The day before Mother’s Day and two weeks before her second birthday.  To this day we still do not know why as it was deemed natural causes.

I was never raised up to believe that breastfeeding was the best thing a mother could do for their child and still have very little support from my family. I’m forced to cover or be closed in a back room when I’m at a family member’s house. I even bear rude, ridiculous comments.  I choose to breastfeed all three children. Honestly, I look to your awesome blog as my one and only support system (besides my wonderful husband). I’m very thankful I found such a badass group of moms.
