Oh, the Places a Mother Goes! Part 4

Last year we had such fun sharing your pictures of nursing in various locations, both inside and outside, that we wanted to do it again! Thank you to those who have sent in their photographs. Thank you especially for showing others that it’s perfectly natural and normal to nurse your child wherever you may be as you go about your day. If you would like to share your picture with the New Beginnings audience, please send your picture to Amy at nbeditor@lllusa.org.

Allison takes a break at the Cincinatti (Ohio) Contemporary Art Center to nurse six-and-one-half-month-old Lainey.

“Here we took a quick break from touring the museum to sit on an art installation bench for a snack! We have had a successful breastfeeding relationship for 6.5 months and are going strong! I always knew I wanted to breastfeed but didn’t know how tough it could be and what a commitment it was.  I also didn’t know how amazingly rewarding it could be for both of us. I feel very lucky to have such a supportive husband, La Leche League, and friends.”

“I laugh when I see (this picture). It so depicts our nursing life! My daughter was born at 34 weeks, and she is now two weeks short of three years old. I struggled so much with low supply after having complications after delivering a premie. We used a supplemental nursing system (SNS). The struggles were hard, but the joy of the end product is overwhelming! So much so, I am going back to school to become a lactation consultant. It’s funny how things work out.”
