A WINNING GOAL FOR LIFE!
From the 1st-7th of August, the BosomMammas of the world unite to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week. Same dates, every year. Its a time for us to reflect and remember those wonderful nursing moments past and present, let the world know that breastfeeding is normal, and it should never be hidden. It’s also a time for us to teach others the importance of breastfeeding and where any future parents or those with struggles now where to find information, groups, people and friends who can help them with advice and support. Increasing and sustaining the importance of protecting, sustaining and support of breastfeeding.
I decided this year to contact my friends and family who have breastfed or are currently nursing their babies for personal photographs of them feeding their infants. So many different babies, so many different women, so many different breasts, but most importantly so many different stories.
Stories of tongue-tie, mastitis, thrush, latching problems, supply problems, flat nipples and even the odd inverted nipple. Big boobs. Small boobs. Premie babies. Over due babies. Multiple Babies. Natural births and caesarean sections. Oh, and the bearded Hos… Don’t ask. He’s in here too.
All united in one beautiful natural act.
So, as this week of celebration draws to a close, A huge thank you to all of our family and friends, our husbands and partners, our midwives and doulas. All of those who supported each and every one of us in our breastfeeding journeys. You are all amazing. Oh, and our babies.
