I get serious baby fever looking at these amazing photos I found while browsing the internet. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to breastfeed Babe E (I didn’t exclusively breastfeed my older children) for as long as we did. That bond and experience is something I really hope to experience again if we decide to add another child to our family.
For me it is rare to see mom’s comfortably breastfeeding out in public – it certainly happens but not as often as I would hope to see it. I love how comfortable all these women seem in these photos and how natural it all is.
