Did you know when you nurse your baby your body releases the hormone oxytocin which can produce calmness and even sleepiness. Even better, your body releases endorphins during breastfeeding which contribute to your overall well-being and gives you that natural high. In my current experience the toddler gymnastics and hair yanking sorta puts a downer on my natural high. 😂 I do actually on rare occasion think I've experienced this but I'm not sure I could put the feeling into words... Anyone else care to give it a try?!
Just made the BIGGEST mistake! Wasn't quite quick enough with the nappy after the little fellas bath tonight and you can guess what happened all over our bedroom floor 🤢😳😩 I hope everyone is getting to enjoy some 'relaxing' family time this weekend🤞🏻@sarahbeaa 📷
"My story is that my 5 year old son struggled to latch and I pumped for 12 weeks day and night to feed him. When my daughter was born last year I initially struggled with breastfeeding but through sheer determination I managed to ebf her for 8 months before returning to work and I will always be glad that I did it! It was the most incredible life affirming thing I have ever experienced but still extremely difficult at times 😊x" thank you so much for sharing you story with us @kim_goodall it's so good to hear your journey ❤😘😘 If you would like to be featured on our page, feel free to DM us your pics ❤❤

It is such a simple thing to be supportive. But for some reason I've found it missing from many groups of women along my journey so far. Then I found this community of honest, truthful and nonjudgmental mothers. And in a world where it is so easy to knock each other down you bring me hope. Thank you. 📷 @bree.ann.selice

He has suck with me like glue the entire day and it has felt overwhelming and all i have been craving is some alone time. Nothing major just to drink a hot cup of tea and go to the bathroom without him trying to run away with the toilet roll. But now he has been asleep for the last half hour and I've spent the whole time staring at him and thinking about how I wish I didn't have work tomorrow because I hate being without him 💔
When I was pregnant I could handle the gradual changes and belly expansion. Then after the birth I felt like I'd been transported into someone else's body. To say I was shocked with my appearance was an understatement but over time I've learnt to except then embrace my stripes, lumps and bumps. 🖤
**NEW** These beauties are finally listed in store 🙈 In a strange way I find this illustration the most intimate I've shared with you 🖤 They are available in white, grey and red but are very limited to each colour and size!
This beauty will be making her appearance later this evening. Just finishing off some photographs of the new tees. Overwhelmed my the response of her stripes , it's heartwarming to know other mamas are embracing there bodies 🖤

No matter what our journey looks like, we're all very hard working and loving mothers. We salute every one of you today.
Did you know that Mamma is Latin for breast? Carl Linneus, the founder of Taxonomy (a branch of science that encompasses the description, identification, and classification of organisms), originally used the word Mammalia to describe animals that feed their young with milk.
Evolutionary biologists estimate that the ancestor of all mammals lived 310 million years ago, and oozed milk from their skin for their young to feed on after hatching from eggs. Nature has been researching your milk for hundreds of millions of years...
Over time, the skin glands that produced this milk became nipples, as a way to deliver the mother’s immune system to newborns to protect them from infections. Food might well have been a secondary benefit. This immune protection covered the vulnerable period of early life when a child’s immune system is not well developed. It is thought to be fully mature in humans by the age of 6.
You're pretty Phenomenal.

Happy #worldbreastfeedingweek to all Moms in the world! You're very strong and I'm so proud of you! 💪😍❤ Breastfeeding (either direct breastfeeding or pumping), needs commitment, time, energy, and big efforts from Moms. I remembered how I struggled a lot with breastfeeding since Sean's jaw hadn't fully developed when he was born and I was overproducing. Then 4 days after, he needed to be readmitted to the hospital because of his jaundice made him too sleepy to nurse. Not to mention he lost weight (until he's only 2.4kg) and the pediatrician told me to gave him formula if he didn't nurse and gained weight by tomorrow (Thank God he finally gained weight and nursed well). This picture was our first time of getting the perfect latch when breastfeeding, taken by my postpartum doula. Look at my super exhausted but happy face! 😍
** ONLY 48HRS LEFT TO ORDER IN TIME FOR MOTHERS DAY** Use code FREESHIPPING for free 1st class delivery on all UK orders over £20. So get tagging them partners because there's no excuse for your presents not arriving in time for Mother's Day 😉 (📸 @what_jade_loves )
Today I booked a well overdue appointment for my smear test. I know most women are guilty of putting it off but after enduring birth is it really that bad? If you're reading this and you're a plonker like me then STOP PROCRASTINATING and get to it! Also did I forget to mention this tote is back in stock?! 📷 @hellohayden15
Oxytocin is a hormone that induces feelings of well-being, connection and relaxation. It’s released in our bodies when we hug or kiss someone we love.
The oxytocin in your milk enhances these feelings in both your child and in you.
Oxytocin also causes the milk-ejection reflex, or letdown. It is carried through the bloodstream to the breast, where it causes contractions that carry the milk forward into the ducts, where it becomes available to our tiny humans through the nipple openings.
It also causes contractions of the uterus, which help to control bleeding after birth and shrink the uterus back to its pre-pregnancy size. The mother’s uterus contracts during feeds and for up to 20 minutes after the feed.
Oxytocin; love and practicality in one place. In the words of Liz Fraser in Massive Attack’s song Teardrop; “Love, love is a verb, love is a doing word”
Is that not the very definition of motherhood?!
Happy #internationalwomensday to each and every one of you, from all of us at Team Tiny Humans! <3

It's been one of those days when the little man takes his afternoon nap and I join him 😬 living the rock and roll dream! Lots of these tees are heading out today so better get a move on. #normalizebreastfeeding
THE EMPRESS IS NOW IN T-SHIRT FORM 😍 I couldn't wait for a decent photograph so here's my messy living room and grumpy pooch. Once again these are ridiculously limited and obviously I'm keeping one for myself 😉
Thank you @4thtribodies for sharing!
One year ago today we were shooting in London. Resharing this favorite in honor of #worldbreastfeedingweek
The amazing Tobi Adebajo with her daughter Gabrielle (21 months). Tobi conceived her daughter when she was just 19 and in her first year of university for biomedical science. She wasn't at all expecting it and had to spend some time sorting out what she was going to do and her choices would then affect the rest of her life. Her family, spread between Nigeria and London, were not supportive at first and Tobi become quite depressed. She sought out the stories and community of other women and mothers and she soon found herself really enjoying her pregnancy. Tobi began researching birthing options and making choices about breastfeeding and decided that she wanted to have a water birth at home.
Spanning the last four months of her pregnancy, Tobi developed pelvic girdle pain and had to wear a support to make things manageable. When labor began she progressed at home without complication but was told that because her water hadn't broke she'd need to go to the hospital. Thankfully she was still able to have the water birth she'd wished for and says it was an amazing experience. Breastfeeding has been hugely important for Tobi and though she's faced some criticisms for continuing to nurse, she plans to continue until her daughter decides she is done.
Tobi says that being a young mother, her body has changed in ways that are perhaps not societally acceptable for a women her age. As a former model herself, she knows first hand that models don't look the same in real life as they do in their finished photographs. Instead of continuing to celebrate this, she hopes that we can continue instead to normalize what is normal and instead applaud women and mothers for who they truly are.
It doesn't take much to knock a breastfeeding, sleep deprived and hormonal mama down. But what I don't understand is why anyone would want to. I don't think there can ever be enough support for what we do but your words and stories on my last post have kept me sane. Thank you, each and ever one of you. All we do is love and sometimes I think we scare the ones who have too much hate within themselves. 🖤 #sisterhood
Did I forget to mention that I have 100 of these stickers printed from @awesomemerch that I won on there weekly giveaway (which you could be definitely be checking out 😉) so I'll be added these beauties to every #normalizebreastfeeding merch order placed until they're gone 😜 no minimum spend or promo code required!
