I have been breastfeeding for nearly 5 years. I started back in April of with my eldest Hans for example and am now tandem feeding with my newborn, River. Breastfeeding for me is so special because It immediately created an unbreakable bond that I am able to share with my children. Hans is autistic and this is the one thing that comforts him the most, it makes him feel safe.
Breastfeeding to Shatter Stereotypes
Millennial moms have it rough as it is, with so many crazy new parenting rules to abide by — but things are even rougher for reality stars like the gals of Teen Mom. Picked apart daily on social media for how they raise their children, the OG and TM2 girls can never catch a break! Still, some of them have been strong advocates for breastfeeding over the years , and have stood up for their decisions to nurse their babies — or bottle-feed them, in other cases — despite the haters. Jenelle breastfed Kaiser after his birth, but stopped when he was about one month old. And it looks like the mom of three has preferred the bottle ever since. As for Ali and Aleeah, how hard must it have been for a skinny year-old to supply enough milk for twins?! Like Chels, Bri has been open about how hard nursing can be sometimes, and even blamed her difficulties breastfeeding Stella on her fake boobs! Like at all.
But these powerful, beautiful, sometimes raw images of women breastfeeding their babies are proof of the strength, determination and love that moms from across the country have for their newborns. This beautiful bride took the to-have-and-to-hold part of her wedding vows to a whole new level as she nursed her new baby boy mid-ceremony. That can be especially true for babies with Down syndrome, whose poor muscle tone may interfere with a good latch. Christian Serratos, who plays the butt-kicking, zombie-destroying Rosita in The Walking Dead, took to Instagram to put breastfeeding-shamers in their place. So I will post what I want, when I want. With well over , likes, it looks a lot of people are cheering her on. When Maya Vorderstrasse shared this photo on Instagram , she was floored by the response of over 11, likes. She writes about her struggle to nurse both at the same time. Just love them and do the best you can.
