“It’s world breastfeeding week!
The theme this year is “Support breastfeeding for a healthier planet”
At first I was only going to breastfeed for a month, and then it turned into three and then six and now here we are getting closer to one and I definitely don’t see an end in sight! 😂
I wake up every day feeling so grateful that breast feeding worked out for us and while it has not always been easy, it has been worth it.
It has been so empowering to see Bodhi grow and flourish and know that it is because of my body💪
At one time the thought of breast feeding made me very anxious, but I’m so happy to say that it has become my favorite thing about motherhood.
I love the way Bodhi looks at me and smiles while he nurses. I love how he curls my hair and shirt into his hands.
I love the early morning feeds and all of the snuggles.
I know that this is not the experience of all moms and that’s okay! We all do what is best for us and our babies. And I hope that we as a culture begin to remove the stigma of breast feeding and support new moms so that they feel confident and supported in the hospital, at home and in the work place.
I hope to see more BIPOC in breast feeding ads and more cities and businesses support moms who choose to drop the cover.
All moms should be correctly informed and supported so that they choose whatever feeding journey works best for them.
I am going to to soak up every moment we have left in this journey because I’ll be sad when it comes to an end ❤️”
