As 2016 winds down, we’d like to share a few more photos submitted by our readers from all over the world as they—and their nurslings— explored the sights and sounds of the communities around them.
Dawn nurses four-month-old Noelle during a hike up Mount Medvednica in Zagreb, Croatia, as eight-year-old sister Nicole shares a smile.
Roxanne of Rochester Hills, Michigan, writes: “My 10-month-old goes on most of my runs with me. During long runs we often find a bench so she can have a snack. I’ve never received anything but smiles from passers-by.”
Apple Mae Papada pauses for a moment with five-month-old daughter, Alondra, during a tour of the caverns in Luray, Virginia. “Fall is the perfect season to go and visit the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. We decided to explore a cave. It was only about an hour tour, but my dear daughter could not wait and wanted some ‘Momma time’, which I love doing, too!”
Erica shares a family tradition with readers: “This is my two-year-old daughter Hannah. She is nursing at the top of the Ferris wheel at the Wayne Regional Fair in Goldsboro, North Carolina. We go to the fair every year and I have nursed all three of my babies at the fair, but Hannah is the first to nurse on the Ferris wheel. She nursed there last year and the year before.”
