Breastfeeding at one and going strong!! TBH we have been trying to wean because I need to go back to work but with us both being sick atm Ellie is feeding like she was an infant. I will give her what she needs and she will wean when she is ready. Our journey has had its up and downs, I’ve been so tired, and so has she! Fighting intolerances, lack of sleep, being a mum to my other 8 year old beauty too, sickness, depleted supply! We have gotten through it. She will wean when she is ready. There is no need to preach “normalise breastfeeding”, because this is natural and it is normal . If you don’t think it’s normal there’s something wrong with your head. #breastfeeding#breastfeedingisnormal#babylove
This sketch is made out of frustration. Now that I'm also nursing my youngest daughter (3 weeks old) I was reminded again of the awkwardness of breastfeeding your baby in public. What is that? I'm so annoyed by the idea of being judged while I'm just taking care of my child in the most natural way. Is it strange that my baby sometimes gets hungry if we are not home? Is the only other way to stay home all day because I don't want to be stared at in public or get an angry face from someone? We should continue with breastfeeding our children in public to normalize it.
It’s that time of year: @nowtoronto is looking for participants for our 2018 Love Your Body issue. For the past 3 years, this award-winning cover story has featured diverse bodies and stories from Toronto residents. The idea is to counter the “new year, new you” messaging we’re fed by mainstream media in January and instead, appreciate the bodies we have. If you’re interested in being featured in a tastefully nude photo shoot and have a story to tell about your body, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (last year’s cover shot by @tanjatiziana)

Breastfeeding is normal.
This is just as okay as someone feeding their baby with a bottle. A woman's body was DESIGNED to breastfeed. It's completely natural and quite amazing if you think about it. I can feed my baby with my BODY! That is amazing! This is in no way sexual or disgusting and should not be shamed. I should not feel scared to feed my baby the way my body was designed to. If for any reason you feel this is sexual or disgusting... shame on you. Today's society needs to get on board with normalizing breastfeeding again. Today's society needs to stop shaming moms for feeding their children in such a natural way. Stop encouraging men to feel entitled to sexualize every part of a woman's body. Stop standing up for a man's right to be turned on and start standing up for a child's right to be fed.
Today is the first day I've been with just Georgia during the day. I had hopes of doing fun girl things... coffee date, couch snuggles, a day filled with giggles and joy. It hasn't been that at all. I had a battle with wanting to sit and watch Netflix, by myself while she napped. Then feeling so overwhelmed when she woke up because I didn't do anything when she slept. #momguilt Hubs called to ask how our lady day was going and I just cried. I really don't know when the overwhelmingness of motherhood will go away or if it ever will... but I hope it lets up soon.
Today we had our session with the @australianbreastfeedingproject
It was so amazing to meet other mummas on a Breastfeeding Journey also. I think our photos will look amazing! The photographer was fantastic! It did get a little awkward when Reign started pulling my hair over my face so that I looked like the Gruge during our group photo but what can ya do ...🤷🏽♀️
