Happy breastfeeding week to all the fantastic families out there who support breastfeeding whether they do it themselves or not. I've never been happier than at this past period of my life, when my children's needs were simple and straightforward. My milk eased all their pains, helped all their worries, cured all their illnesses. I breastfeed my children when they request it day and night. I breastfed through two pregnancies and two labours. I breastfeed two children at a time. I breastfeed through bugs, fevers, infections. I have breastfed in cars, trains, planes, boats. I have breastfed as a working mother and a stay at home mom. I breastfeed in public and private, wherever we are without asking anyones permission because my child's right to eat is protected by law. I have been breastfeeding non-stop since June 2008 and can hand-on-heart say it is my proudest achievement. Now my children are moving on in childhood and growing in independence every day I have beautiful photos like the ones above to look back on.
Thank you to all of you who accept that breastfeeding my children until they wean themselves is the right decision for our family. Thank you for your smiles and positive words of encouragement when we're breastfeeding out and about, even if it challenges your beliefs a bit. Thank you for your honest questions about how it works and for listening while I try to explain it. Thank you for not judging us and knowing that our decisions don't judge yours in any way. Thank you for your love and support of our family.
