While I support breastfeeding, I am moreover an advocate of making informed decisions children and of supporting the (informed) choices other parents make, even ones that differ from my own. One fantastic post that I just found on the language surround breastfeeding and why there are such polarized views on the subject can be found here: Watch Your Language. 
I was so excited, I had to do another wordless post with breastfeeding images, too! It has the same Linky, so your posts are automatically generated in one: twice as nice!
Check out the Breastfeeding tab at top of the page for more word-full posts., like my recipe for Lactation Cookies or stay wordless and view my popular Images of Attachment post for photos of breastfeeding & babywearing across the world. β™₯

  1. I breastfed all of my six children to 18 to 24 months of age. I have never regretted any of it….well, maybe falling asleep in a chair a lot! Ha! Worth it! I remember my mother being ashamed of me breastfeeding, but my Great-Grandmother came down to visit her first great-great grandchild who gave me the greatest encouragement of all: "That is the most beautiful site in the world!"

  2. I breastfed both of mine for the first two years of their lives. It was hard in the beginning. My first was born with a cyst under his tongue. His tongue was mis-shaped. He would not latch well at all! Finally we both got the hang of it. I also worked full-time. I pumped enough to get us by. He got a staph infection at 7 months. My supply went way down. Somehow he managed to get my supply back up! Then my youngest had meningitis at 2 months. My supply went down with that and then back up. It was rewarding though. On their upswings from being sick, all they wanted to do was breastfeed.
