Mothers just ‘know’.
How many times do we have to reaffirm this to ourselves before we actually REALIZE it?
Our body’s have such a wisdom – so doesn’t it make sense that, if something comes OUT OF THEM, that something will be inherently subject to that wisdom??
Until your children are old enough to dwell in their own wisdom, you have a duty to TRUST YOUR KNOWING – over and above what anyone else says. That child chose YOU (this is the same for adoptive mothers – those children chose YOU, so you do have this KNOWING).
It’s not hogwash. Its fact.
Let’s move away from the limited perception that intuition is not significant. IT IS. It’s who we are.
So go and seek, find the information you need for your child. Feed you child when and what your mother instinct tells you to. Listen to who your mother instinct tells you to listen to. Follow it. In full trust.
“I see you”,
PS: There’s a fantastic movie based on a true story, starring Meryl Streep called ‘First Do No Harm‘. The story goes something like this: her little 6 year old son had epilepsy and as his seizures increased, his quality of life decreased – because of the medication – to the point where he was permanently in a hospital bed in a drugged, buckled-down state. So when she finally couldn’t stand seeing him like that any longer, his mother relentlessly follow her MOTHER INSTINCT and began to RESEARCH at the local library. She KNEW she was onto something, she knew she was going to find something – but didn’t quite know what. Until she found a research paper that spoke of DIET, NOT MEDICATION – as a way to a cure. But the medical profession kept telling her it was anecdotal, that there was no serious research on it, no studies published in reputable journals. Oh, but there was research and plenty of case studies: there were thousands of people that it helped and even cured for over 30 years. Yet, because the medical profession needed its ‘best practice clinical studies’ stamp on it, it wasn’t acknowledged by said journals. Now, myself having been a STATISTICAL ANALYST IN HEALTH RESEARCH, I knew how limiting their ‘best practice’ studies are because of their FAULTY RESEARCH FRAMEWORK, which is: based on a drug’s success. So how can this framework analyse a diet’s success??!! So simple yet no-one’s picked up on it in the industry… Anyhow, watch the movie – it’s fantastic. An oldie but a goody 🙂
PSS: As usual, I must advocate for men too: if the mother is removed from her instinct you may very well be taking on that much-needed role of ‘mother instinct’. This is because: a field is self-balancing, and you as parents make up your own little ‘field’ . So you too must listen to your mother instinct.. Since you have had to adopt the role as such.
