@thelittlemilkbar_ - Photos like this remind me just how powerful women are. The fact that we can grow a living, breathing human being inside our bodies, birth those babies like a boss, and nourish and keep those babies alive solely on our breastmilk.... is incredibly breath taking. .I'm asking every single one of you to stop scrolling and take a moment to appreciate YOU and your body. Take a minute to breath in all the incredible things you have done (and currently are doing). .Recognize that you are enough, and have been all along. Women are amazing, YOU are amazing! -Linds || 📸 @lioraorli_photography #dropthecover #normalizebreastfeeding . . . . . #normalizebreastfeeding #BreastFeedingIsBeautiful #feedingwithlove #extendedbreastfeeding #amamentação #amamentacao #amamentar #normalisebreastfeeding #lactanciamaterna #breastfeedwithoutfear #exclusivelybreastfed #breastfeeding #lechematerna #allaitement #amning #amorliquido #boobslactés #aleitamentomaterno #breastfeedingmom #borstvoeding #breastfed #breastfeedinginpublic #allaitementmaternel #stillenistliebe #karmieniepiersią #motherhood #fulltermbreastfeeding

Do you remember your baby’s first latch? They placed their warm little body on your chest and instinctively inched closer, searching for the right spot to latch on to. It's the first time our bodies connect again after just having been separated from inside the womb. Each time you nurse your child you bring them back to the spot where you first met. We are their safe zone, their original home, so it’s no wonder they want to stay there, feel so comfortable they fall asleep there, stop crying every time they are near there 〰️ 📸@alannahmortonphotography

Trying to imagine breastfeeding at 3-6-9-12 months when struggling to feed a newborn can be overwhelming! Mini goals and support can help you achieve your lactation goals. Tag a friend that needs this reminder ❤️

@taelynnae - Breastfeeding my children has been the best decision for us. It has taught me to be patient, goal-oriented, unapologetic, and more loving..all while nurturing their tiny bodies with nothing but the best. I will continue to do this until my children outgrow the need to nurse. Breastfeeding is beautiful and there is no need to hide it from the world. ♥️ #NationalBreastfeedingWeek #TandemNursing #TandemBreastfeeding #TheBigLatchOn #TheBigLatchOn2018 #NursingInPublic • • • • #Momlife #SayYesToTheBreast #LiquidGold #normalizebreastfeeding #BreastFeedingIsBeautiful #feedingwithlove #extendedbreastfeeding #amamentação #amamentacao #amamentar #normalisebreastfeeding #lactanciamaterna #breastfeeding #lechematerna #allaitement #amning #amorliquido #boobslactés #aleitamentomaterno #borstvoeding #breastfeedinginpublic #allaitementmaternel #stillenistliebe #karmieniepiersią

@loveofalittleone “This is the first photo of me breastfeeding ever. It’s a far cry from the ones you’re probably used to seeing on my feed. - To be honest, when I got pregnant, I didn’t know if I would breastfeed. I knew how magical breastfeeding was but I also knew how I felt about my breasts. - I had grown up in a society that taught me my body was for public consumption first and baby second. - I had been in an abusive relationship where if even the slightest of cleavage showed, I was called a slut, a whore, my fidelity questioned. - I had freed myself from that relationship and now viewed my breasts as these pillows of flesh that when showcased just right made me feel powerful, so I showcased them. - My breasts had never been my own. And now, being offered a choice to use them to feed my baby, I was unsure. - For me, that first latch changed everything. Finally, I felt like I understood the real power that my breasts could have. I don’t judge any woman on whether she breastfeeds or not because the decision is complicated. Our relationship with our bodies is complicated. But for me, breastfeeding helped me realize a strength, a control over my body, that I had never felt before. - My face in this photo says it all. It’s a mix of love for my baby and love for myself. It’s gratefulness for my body. It’s finally letting go past confinements. It’s joy.” . . . . . #worldbreastfeedingweek #bodypositivity #breastfeeding #breastfeedingsupport #thisismotherhood #selflove #extendedbreastfeeding #lactationsupport #postpartumsupport #normalizebreastfeeding #feedingwithlove #postpartum #breastfeeding #pumpingmom #empoweredmothers #birthwithoutfear #firstlatch #14monthsold #justborn #survivor #bornathome #newmom #motherssupportingmothers #parenting #momlife #lifewithbaby #vegan #motherhood

It has been a CRAZY week full of babies! I love my job because it does not feel like a job at all. . Getting to guide mothers and their families through this wonderful part of life, even if they’re having difficulties, is certainly a job that gives back. . I love hearing relief on the other end of the phone when plans work out and circumstances that felt impossible are now possible. Great reminder for families out there who are struggling with breast-feeding-you are not alone, and there is definitely help! . Happy Thursday, & happy rest of your week! . #bestjobever #genesislactation #knowledgeispower #affirmation #IBCLC #liquidgold #breastmilk #breastfeeding #knoxville #sustainable #normalizebreastfeeding #supportnursingwomen #naturalbaby #babywearingmom #momlife #treeoflife #feedingwithlove #extendedbreastfeeding #mindfullness #knoxvillemom #empoweringwomen #nutrition #informedisbest #informed

@gulphoto - WORLD WIDE BREASTFEEDING WEEK. As a pediatrician I am always in awe, and very envious, of the relationship between mothers and their children. Yes, us fathers rock and we work and love our families so hard but the bond between a mother and her child is unique. One of my favorite things as a dad is to observe my wife as she interacts with our kids. They just have that special bond. Sometimes I secretly listen to the conversations my wife has with the kids as she teaches them life lessons. Breastfeeding epitomizes the special bond mom’s have with their children. The female yin. Here the inspiring @rekanyariphotography breastfeeds Ilo into her second year as she juggles a busy career as a professional Photograher and cares for her family. Thanks so much to @isewhite @grisellerosarioproductions @billy.jim @steventphoto @edwinirizarrynyc @sofia_brunet @rafelynailsnyc . #honestlymothering #nurish #nurture . . . . . . #breastfeedingart #breastfeedingphotography #normalizebreastfeeding #BreastFeedingIsBeautiful #feedingwithlove #extendedbreastfeeding #amamentação #amamentacao #amamentar #normalisebreastfeeding #lactanciamaterna #breastfeedwithoutfear #exclusivelybreastfed #breastfeeding #lechematerna #allaitement #amning #amorliquido #boobslactés #aleitamentomaterno #breastfeedingmom #borstvoeding #allaitementmaternel #stillenistliebe #karmieniepiersią #fulltermbreastfeeding

With its relaxed fit and nursing access— the cocoon dress will be your go to postpartum (and beyond!) favorite. AND it has pockets 🤩💙

@gulphoto - Well this wraps it up for WORLDWIDE BREASTFEEDING WEEK. Look how well @rekanyariphotography balances the owl while breastfeeding! Only a mother could manage such a busy life balancing the needs of a child and life’s other callings. Here Reka holds a Eurasian Eagle Owl while also caring for her daughter, shooting as a professional photographer, models and keeps pace with a busy life in SOHO. Check out Reka’s site for really cool images. Meanwhile I hope every birdwatcher in the world gets to see this image and realizes that breastfeeding is really where it’s at 😉. @grisellerosarioproductions @isewhite @edwinirizarrynyc @rafelynailsnyc @billy.jim @steventphoto @sofia_brunet #owls #thebiglatchon . . . . . . . #normalizebreastfeeding #BreastFeedingIsBeautiful #feedingwithlove #extendedbreastfeeding #amamentação #amamentacao #amamentar #normalisebreastfeeding #lactanciamaterna #breastfeedwithoutfear #exclusivelybreastfed #breastfeeding #lechematerna #allaitement #amning #amorliquido #boobslactés #aleitamentomaterno #breastfeedingmom #borstvoeding #breastfeedingphotography #breastfeedingart #breastfedbaby #allaitementmaternel #stillenistliebe #karmieniepiersią #fulltermbreastfeeding
