World Breastfeeding Week - 2017
August 1-7, 2017
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week,
I want to honor some of the beautiful mothers I've met along my journey
and share a little about my own.
Breastfeeding can be exhausting.
It can be tough.
It can be painful.
It can be overwhelming.
But more importantly...
Breastfeeding is selfless.
Breastfeeding is natural.
Breastfeeding is a gift.
Breastfeeding is love turned into nourishment.
I've had four different journeys with breastfeeding.
Each one of them ended completely different than the one before.
Some ended quicker than others.
Some had more tears than others.
Some paralleled many months of formula feeding.
But I'm thankful. I'm thankful for the bonds I created with my babies.
Even with the long nights, the frustrating early weeks, the toddler gymnurstics...
I am thankful for breastfeeding.
Unfortunately, I don't have any images of myself nursing my little ones to share.
Oh, how I wish I did. A capture of those days that seemed long but quickly passed.
