Happy World Breastfeeding Week friends. Did you even know that the first week of August is set aside to celebrate, educate and inform about breastfeeding?
It is not always easy. In fact sometimes it is downright hard. This picture always reminds me of that. Taken when Emma was maybe a week old, I will never forget this moment. We were struggling so much and this was the first time she latched on and stayed awake! I told Jeremy to hurry up and get the camera, I didn’t ever want to forget that moment.
Sometimes it is absolutely comical, this breastfeeding thing. From spraying my children in the face as they detach just as I am having a let-down, to the acrobatic toddler nursing…it can really be hilarious.
And in that moment when you first put your baby to your breast, it becomes a memory you never forget.
And that is what World Breastfeeding Week is all about for me.
