Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week
"The photo is me and my son who was 1 in the picture. He was born at 28 weeks, and he never developed that wiring to suck well. He has a g-tube to help him eat. But I pumped religiously day and night for a year to keep up my supply so we could nurse, even just little bits at a time. It was the hardest and most wonderful sacrifice I've ever made. This photo is the last time he ever nursed. I knew our time was running out, he had gotten worse and worse at sucking, and I am so grateful I had the moment documented."
