“Staring into those big, beautiful baby eyes will be one of the most precious memories I carry with me.” Dionna from Code Name: Mama, shown here nursing 7 month old Ailia.
Early latching issues led to creative positioning and props during feedings for Little #2 as Shannon was determined not to succumb to the boobie-traps that she encountered but also later overcame with her first son.
You can find Shannon and her boys at The Artful Mama.
Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.
From Lauren: “Learning side-lying nursing saved my sleep! Notice that older cosleeping nurslings don’t always lie down in the position you expect.”
Breastfeeding in a carrier can let you get on with your day, and likely no one will notice the baby’s even nursing. This is newborn Alrik in the mei tai Lauren made for him.
Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.
Jesse’s mom, Christine, blogs at African Babies Don’t Cry.
Kristin blogs (occasionally!) at Intrepid Murmurings.
