This week we asked: What does breastfeeding look like?
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.”

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.”

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!!”
Nursing a toddler can be a different sort of adventure! Lauren with Mikko in a drive-by nursing at 2 years old.

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!”

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