BWF Women Normalize Breastfeeding: Part 3

by Birth Without Fear on August 10, 2011

I recently posted a blog post about normalizing breastfeeding and World Breastfeeding Week. I had so many submissions of breastfeeding pictures from BWF Mamas, that I decided to do a series of posts. Here is round 3.

Breastfeeding isn’t ‘normal’ or ‘not normal’. It just is. It is how our bodies were made to feed our babies. Don’t get me wrong. Iwon’t judge a mother for not breastfeeding…I’ve been there. Most of the time though, problems with breastfeeding can be worked out. Usually latch, supply and other issues can be supported and fixed. Unfortunately many women don’t know where to turn to get that help. I didn’t.

Here are some great resources if you need help getting your little one to nurse:

I love this video! Can we all pitch in and buy a bunch of ad spots to put this all over cable television?!

Now to more BWF Mama breastfeeding pictures.

The following 2 pictures are by Lynsey Stone, DFW Birth Photographer.

I love this picture. Not only is baby standing to nurse, but mama also has all her essentials next to her on the couch. Typical in many homes, I’m sure!

This mama sent in her picture with this, “Me and my daughter before the midwife and assistant arrived. Thanks to BWF I was not in a panic when she showed up without the midwife!”

Thank you to everyone who sent in their pictures and stories. I hope to do more breastfeeding posts soon and still have many of your pictures to share!
