Jennifer Leanne McCoy holds her snugly wrapped baby for a feeding session. Someone called this a “beautiful photo” in a comment on Facebook, and I agree.
Paula Lloyd Woodger nurses 7-week-old Daisy while Daisy’s brother looks on. It’s always good to see a sibling appreciating his or her mother breastfeeding a baby.
Baby Oscar enjoys his first feeding at mom Lynsey K Calvert’s breast less than 30 minutes after his birth following 48 hours of labor.
Again I’m using the mother’s words for the title, this time from Ruth Moss’s photo on Facebook as it shows her feeding Bertie. The caption goes on to say, “This appeared in UK tabloid The Sunday People to publicise the opposition to FB’s position on breastfeeding photos.” Good for you, Ruth! It helps to have more people express themselves on this topic.
The title above is not original with me. It came from the caption for this picture when Michelle Hall Rodde posted it on Facebook. I couldn’t come up with anything as good, so I’m using her picture and her words! I love the serene scene as Michelle breastfeeds her baby with the vastness of water and beach around her.
I usually post only one picture per blog entry, but I just had to include two here, both showing Tammy McInnis Maguire-Duperron tandem nursing. The tandem technique is something of a tradition with her; her comments on the Facebook page with the picture above say that Iza & Lyvie (shown above in her first tandem feeding) were her third set of tandem nursers. Since then, Lyvie grew to become the older in another tandem set. The picture below shows Lyvie on her second birthday with Crystian at almost 4 months.
Amy Schwab’s daughter looks so happy at her mom’s breast — what a great picture!
Amber Regamey Marsh uses her jacket to provide a nice nook in which son Alex can feed from her breast. He was about 8 months old when this picture was taken in Carcasonne in France. I like the contrast between the rugged, rough structure behind them and the beauty of the mother nursing her child.
Jessica Spring’s baby is busy taking nourishment in the special form that only she can provide. Here’s another beautiful picture of that special relationship between mother and child.
