#breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #momlife #motherhood

This pic of us tonight could possibly be the last of us breastfeeding. In just a few hours I will be boarding a plane and leaving you for the next few days. I should be asleep right now, but sleep won’t come. My nerves are bad and I am feeling extremely anxious. Not so much about the nursing (what will be will be) but just over the fact that I’m leaving you in general. This will be the very first time in the last 15 months of our lives together that I will sleep without you by my side. Typically, I don’t suffer from separation anxiety; your sister and brother began staying overnight with Grandma from only a few weeks on and I was always A-ok with it. But with you, life just worked out that I’ve never needed to be away…until now. And so here we are…and I’m a wreck

I would encourage every mother to breastfeed. Does that make me a lactivist? I suppose so. But am I a finger-wagging fanatic? No. Why would I ever shame a mother for choosing to formula-feed? How could I, when my own children have received plenty of it?
My brand of "lactivism" is for the moms who may not be choosing breastfeeding as an option due to miseducation. There are still so many who find it embarrassing, weird, sexual in nature, too difficult, or simply just don't know enough about it. I want to be part of the movement to help debunk and clarify those myths and to let women know that it can be beautiful. And yes, it can also be hard! I've faced many challenges in all 3 of my breastfeeding journeys. But with the proper help and guidance, it can be done to the benefit of both baby and mother.
I want to be an encouraging voice, not to make women feel like they must breastfeed at all costs, no matter what, but to reinforce that if they wish to and are determined to succeed then there are many ways to help make that happen. Whatever difficulties you may face, very likely there is a solution. The answers aren't always easy for mothers in the "Milk Gap", but that's why I support movements such as #normalizebreastfeeding to widen the circle of awareness, help, and support to mothers who need it most. It takes a village, and this is one I am glad to reside within.
