For World Breastfeeding Week, I met with a few different moms to help them capture their breastfeeding relationship, and to hear a little about their breastfeeding journey. You might recognize this lovely mama from her birth and newborn photography sessions featured recently on my blog. Florines is also my first doula mama, and I remember assisting her with her babe’s first latch, so it was  extra special to take these photos for her, and to see how far they’ve come in just a few months.

Florines shares a few words on her journey as a nursing mama:

“Breastfeeding. I’ve never thought how breastfeeding become so important in my life. Everything started on giving my baby good nutrition and health. But I never thought that the bonding, connection, intimacy, love and care that comes with breastfeed was going to take my relationship to the next level. Is our special time so intimate that by eye contact or a sweet smile she express so much love and gratitude to me. I have learned so much out of this beautiful experience that I give thanks to God for giving me the opportunity to breastfeed my baby and give her this kind of love.”

For World Breastfeeding Week, I met with a few different moms to help them capture their breastfeeding relationship, and to hear a little about their breastfeeding journey. Eve, lovely mama to Yonatan, shares a unique story on her breastfeeding journey.

“When my son was three months, I let go of the “ideal breastfeeding journey” that I had built up in my head, and started supplementing. I learned then that every little bit counts, and I celebrated every feed, and every ounce I was able to pump at work. When my son turned one, I learned that nursing is about so much more than the milk. Even with my now very limited supply, when my son is sick, all he wants is to nurse. Not much milk comes out, but a lot of other things do: comfort, security, affection. My letdown no longer consist of milk, but of love. Of course there are plenty of way to show your child love, but for me and my son, this is one of the main ones at this stage in his life. When he tugs on my shirt, he knows he’s not about to get a full belly, but instead a full heart, as my love lets down and surrounds him. Who knows how long we will continue… I will let Yonatan decide when he would rather snuggle than nurse to get his dose of affection. Until then, we will continue nursing. In bed, at the park, in the supermarket. No place is off limits when it comes to love.”
