I am so happy to see all of the beautiful nursing photos flooding social media lately. I wanted to share one too!
#normalizebreastfeeding is one of my very favorite hash tags. ? I have breastfed all 5 of my sons. Nash is the only one i have pumped and alternated bottled breast milk and breastfeeding with. I remember being so nervous thinking if I pumped and gave him a bottle maybe he would not want to nurse anymore. I had to get back to work just a couple weeks after he was born. My business is how I support my family. I refused to pump until the doctor said nipple confusion would be less likely. (Around 4 weeks) So Nash came to the studio with me while I worked and my amazing clients understood if I needed to take a break to nurse him. Nash is 10 months old now and I know he will be a hard one to wean. He finds such comfort in nursing and knows exactly how to get me to stop everything and snuggle him up to nurse. Choosing to breastfeed my sons is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have done in my life. I nurse in public. I have had good reactions and bad ones as well. In the end we should all try to live our life how we see is fit. Be happy. Be you! <3
