It’s World Breastfeeding Week and I LOVE breastfeeding. I really and truly do. I advocate for it, I hope to see it normalized and it has been a huge part of my life for nearly 30 months (and counting) spread across my two children. Honestly, it’s a parenting strategy when it comes to raising younger babies. Crying? Here’s a boob. Scared? Here’s a boob. Hungry? Here’s a boob.
True story: my daughter’s first words were momma, dada, boob. It’s written in the baby book folks.
I could write an entire post about how much I love breastfeeding. Oh wait, I did just that! Check out my post for the Oklahoma City Moms Blog both about how much I valued nursing my daughter and how interesting it was to nurse her past the age of one in today’s culture. But you can read that post there.
