Oh man, I get teary just writing this post. Breastfeeding is real ladies and gents. I’m proud to have nursed my daughters for a combined 36 months, shorter than I would have liked, but still something to be celebrated! We had many intimate beautiful moments as mother and child, cuddles, and comfort and naps together. It was an amazing tool in my “Motherhood Toolbox” and I’m so happy we continued as long as we did.
I certainly did not find breastfeeding easy, and faced many trials. Thankfully, I’ve had so much support from my community, my husband, websites, and exposure to other nursing women.
This Saturday we are going to celebrate the joys and trials of breastfeeding, and it’s many different forms or “normal” at the Mission Breastfeeding Challenge. Please join us, the sense of community and love is felt throughout the room, with all of these kick butt moms, working hard at something I found to be one of my hardest undertakings.
Saturday October 3rd, from 10:30-12 (Latch On is at 11:00am) at Windebank Elementary School, Mission B.C.
You’ll find lots of snacks, support, door prizes galore, and of course, a special Breastfeeding Portrait from me!
See you there!
