But these powerful, beautiful, sometimes raw images of women breastfeeding their babies are proof of the strength, determination and love that moms from across the country have for their newborns. This beautiful bride took the to-have-and-to-hold part of her wedding vows to a whole new level as she nursed her new baby boy mid-ceremony.
That can be especially true for babies with Down syndrome, whose poor muscle tone may interfere with a good latch. Christian Serratos, who plays the butt-kicking, zombie-destroying Rosita in The Walking Dead, took to Instagram to put breastfeeding-shamers in their place.
So I will post what I want, when I want. With well over , likes, it looks a lot of people are cheering her on. When Maya Vorderstrasse shared this photo on Instagram , she was floored by the response of over 11, likes. She writes about her struggle to nurse both at the same time.
Just love them and do the best you can. To me, fed is best. She had tried to nurse her firstborn and stopped. But here she is with baby No. We think not. Here, Tess Holliday does it with zero apologies. In honor of National Breastfeeding month, photographer Abbie Fox gathered a group of moms who continue to breastfeed their children past infancy.
The result? Jinti Fell travels Australia by way of a camper van with her husband and baby daughter, Ayana. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles.
Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. Instead of having both breasts removed, she opted to keep one. The reason: Shonni had just learned that she was carrying her second child and she wanted to nurse her. Needing to pee so badly but you just rocked the perfect latch and Bebe is nuzzled in nicely for a good feed.
Priorities people. How dare I! In fact, she used to frown upon the practice. Then she had her baby Lilly, and everything changed. Tamas now proudly nurses and openly shares her breastfeeding pictures. To honor the milestone of exclusively breastfeeding for twenty-four weeks—and the start Black Breastfeeding Week—Phylicia Sadsarin shared this precious breastfeeding photo along with a thank-you note to other black women breastfeeding.
Thank you to all of the Black lactation consultants out there!.. And thank you to all of the mamas-to-be who want to breastfeed: We are here to support you.
There is a village and we welcome you with open arms. Mother of two and photographer Ivette Ivens loves taking breastfeeding pictures. In fact, she has a book called Breastfeeding Goddesses.
While the breastfeeding pictures in it are decidedly ethereal, this one—recently shared on Instagram —is simple and real, and just as lovely. Perfecting the proper breastfeeding latch can take a little practice—but this little one took to it quickly.
Nailed it! There are plenty of breastfeeding pictures that capture the beauty and joy of the moment. Breastfeeding is hard. Keep going!! That initial breastfeeding session can be intimidating for any new mom, but this mama looks positively serene nursing her very first baby from her hospital bed. Her spouse was deployed at the time, and her photographer was the only person with her during delivery.
I produced just enough to feed both of them. I think the longest I have lasted is about 20 hours without feeding. Kelly Stanley of Johnson City, Tennessee, struggled to breastfeed her daughter when she was born. Yet when the first-time mom went to nurse her baby while out to dinner with her parents, her father grabbed a cloth and shoved it at her, telling her to cover up. Nearly a hundred young mothers participated in a nurse-in in Xiangyang, China with the goal of raising awareness about breastfeeding, advocating for the establishment of maternal and infant rooms in public places and creating a loving social atmosphere for both babies and mothers.
My own experiences have been really up and down, with government cutting funding to breastfeeding support groups.
