World Breastfeeding Week 2011!

It should be noted that this post is about breastfeeding, and as such the blog entry and photos below will discuss and show breasts and breastfeeding. If you find such things embarrassing or uncomfortable, this particular entry is not recommended reading for you.

This is just a short post in honor of World Breastfeeding Week!  Having now nursed my own Squishy for ten weeks, having been through the pain of the first two, and having discovered the joy of the past eight, I've found that breastfeeding is something I am quite passionate about.  So, in an effort to help spread awareness and acceptance of breastfeeding, I participated in hbdocumentary's WBW nursing photo shoot.  A group of local women and I met at one woman's home, chatted, and nursed our babies as Heather (hbdocumentary photographer) worked her magic.  This week on the hbdocumentary blog, Heather is posting the photos along with breastfeeding tips and resources and personal stories of nursing experiences.  Please take a moment to check it out, support breastfeeding, and view her lovely photographs by clicking the blog link above or copying and pasting http://hbdocumentary.wordpress.com/ into your address bar.

  1. "the pain of the first two" Oh yeah, been there. But I loved it, and she is healthier because of it :)
