Extreme Breastfeeding Images: 2nd Edition

Perhaps amazing is a better term. Inspiring. Extreme? Maybe to some. As a busy mom to 2 littles under 3 years of age I can saftely say, that a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do to get stuff done. That and breastfeeding is hard work for many. And sometimes? Sometimes it’s not even about having to breastfeed in public out of sheer urgency, (although mostly it is, these babies are HUNGRY I tell you!) The base emotion of it all, what makes some mothers fight so hard for their rights? Is that they are doing what is completely ageless, instinctively natural and all to do with mother-hood. Nothing to do with exhibitionism. These, of course, are only my opinions. Of which I am so right about. In January I shared the 1st edition of images I curated for you all to enjoy and be inspired by. It was such a well-received collection that I’ve decided to share some more with y’all. Because the nursing freedom shan’t ever end.

    Baby-wearing and nursing with one hand to support the latch, while the other hand balances a load of laundry on top of her head. Bravo.

    This is something I've attempted before but never really mastered. I suppose I'm not Zen enough. Which is fine. Totally. Doesn't mean this mama doesn't rock hardcore in my books for various reasons. Read the article to find out!
