Sarah Fleet’s son was nearly 14 months old when this picture was taken. She wrote, “He had been playing in the water and then came running up to me doing his ‘sign’ for mummy milk.” She added that the towel was to keep him warm, rather than to hide her.

michelle-hall-roddeThe title above is not original with me. It came from the caption for this picture when Michelle Hall Rodde posted it on Facebook.

I love the composition here, with Melanie’s baby feeding happily from her breast in the foreground and the beach, water and blue sky in the background. What a special time!
