With Liam, I feel like I shared much more about our breastfeeding relationship & journey. In fact, breastfeeding was/is the one subject I am emailed about the most. It's something I am so so passionate about, and I love any opportunity to help others. I was actually considering becoming a La Leche League leader for awhile, but I find myself not having the time I would like to be able to dedicate to it right now.
Today I just wanted to share a few of my favorite breastfeeding images from our recent family shoot. (Thanks again to Kali Poulsen). Between the stinging nettles & the late-ish hour, Finn spent a good portion of our shoot nursing. I love how beautifully & naturally these moments were captured.
Not only I am a huge breastfeeding advocate, but I'm a big supporter of nursing into the toddler years. The breastfeeding relationship changes so much after that first year. The bond grows ever stronger. I wish more women had the opportunity or the desire to nurse past that initial 12 months. So here I am nursing my now nearly 15 month old. My hope is that by sharing these images, someone may be encouraged to keep breastfeeding their little nursling. To enjoy that relationship past the baby stage.
