Wordless Wednesday: Breastfeeding

This week we asked: What does breastfeeding look like?

sharing nursing with little sister
From Lyn: “My children are 21 months apart. I was worried about how my son would react to his little sister having his milk. This photo is proof that he was more than happy to share.”

From Natalia: “My son is 3,5 months now and we have been combining nursing with so many activities from the very beginning! Nursing in a baby carrier is practical and cute.”
Natalia blogs at Baby Guroo.

Mama Mo with Gus and Jack at the breast
From Mama Mo: “After getting my premature twin boys, Gus and Jack, transitioned
from taking my pumped milk from a bottle to nursing at the breast, I
took this picture to commemorate the achievement.”
Mama Mo blogs at Attached at the Nip.

Karen and Ruby breastfeeding
From Karen: “Taken days after our little girl, Ruby, was born (bum first at home!). Ruby weighed all of 2.5kg (5.66lb)…but she had a fierce little suck and once she latched there was no looking back! My milk was in within about 24hrs. My boobs were about 3 times the size of her head for ages!!”

drive-by nursing

Halfway Crunchy nursing her daughter
From Sara: “I’m sad that this is really the only nursing photo that I have… I need to take more. I remember when I asked my husband to take the picture he was confused as to why I’d want a picture of me nursing my daughter. Well, duh — it’s because I want to cherish the moment!”
Sara blogs at Halfway Crunchy.

I think we all need the reminder to take more nursing photos! Don’t be shy about asking. :)

    All amazing photos! The twins are so cute! The brother and sister picture made me smile, the drive-by nursing too.

    So many great shots. I don’t have many photos nursing The Dudes because it was such a special and private time for us. I loved that it was a way to escape for the baby and I to just be together and we usually made everyone else leave us alone! Yes, I was pretty baby feeding stingy and #1 never even took a bottle from anyone EVER. I was that into it. Had to loosen the reigns a bit when the other two came along, but I still liked to make it mostly just about baby and me.

    I only lasted a month with a little one, but I wished I hang in there. It is a great gift of love to your child.
