This week we asked: What does breastfeeding support look like?

(Read more about feeding with love and respect on our resource page.)

From Shannon of Pineapples & Artichokes: “I am fortunate to have a lot of support in my life, from family who did it, to friends who are current La Leche League leaders, including this wonderful friend, pictured here holding my daughter with her first nursling looking on. She was the first person I ever saw breastfeed, and was patient and kind with answering all my questions. Thank you Pam!”

Jennifer from True Confessions of a Real Mommy was proud to support another breastfeeding relationship by donating milk to an amazing, hard-working mama who, with the help of an SNS (supplemental nursing system), made it to a year and beyond breastfeeding.

Eating oatmeal daily can help support milk production. It worked once for Momma Jorje, but not this time around.

Sasha helping Mommy make Lactation Breakfast Bar Dough. Lactation Cookies and Breakfast Bars
helped with supply, but were fairly labor intensive. Making Mama’s Milk & More lactation cookies
are still supporting her supply while nursing 1½-year-old Spencer.

Tell us: What does breastfeeding support look like in your family?
