Wordless Wednesday: Images of Attachment

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

It’s been kind of a crazy week for me so far! I was banned on Monday, posted about it Tuesday and today, i’m continuing on my breastfeeding theme by bringing you breastfeeding/AP photos from across different countries and centuries. Attachment parenting is no new fad!

I have included titles, artist and the year where I could find the information: If you know some information that is missing, please leave it in the comments so I can update the captions! Also, let me know how you found me and who to thank for sending you! 🙂

 [Update 7/16/12: This is quickly becoming one of my more popular posts- if you share it on Facebook, please tag me so I can show you support on my page, too!] Also, you can subscribe by e-mail and make sure to never miss another awesome post!]
