It’s World Breastfeeding Week - So I thought I would join in the celebration by sharing some pictures of me in a few places around the world – Breastfeeding my babies.
The theme of WBW is “Talk to me! Breastfeeding in 3D”
So here is my attempt to talk to you about breastfeeding – from the heart and to promote that it’s natural and wonderful and totally OK!
I have breastfed for the last 5 years, three children, at home and when out and about in the United States, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
I breastfeed everywhere and firmly believe that all mothers should have the right to feed their child whenever and where-ever they are, at home, at a park, at a restaurant, anywhere.
Breastfeeding is not obscene. Breastfeeding is a gift to our children and it is perfectly natural to breastfeed near other children.
I figured out how to breastfeed using a baby carrier, so often I can breastfeed “on the go” pretty much unnoticed. I totally recommend trying it.
Here are two of the more fun places I have breastfed while out and about:
Then there are all the places I don’t have a picture of…in no particular order
Shaw’s supermarket, Millbury Public Library, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, University of Iowa Conference Center, Northbridge Public Library, Opel Zoo,IKEA, Stop and Shop, UNO’s, Barnes n Nobles, Monte Tamaro, Millbury Playground, Grafton Playground, BYFN, Malpensa Airport, Migros, Oesteria Del Theatro,Rhein-Main International Airport, Phoenix Zoo, Target, Babies R US, Toom Markt, Phillip Reis Passage, Oxford Library, Milford Hospital, Long Horns Restaurant, MOMS Club, Vacallo Playground, Phoenix Airport, Adventure Playground, PlayTown Express, Bennett…and it goes on and on…
Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
