August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. As breastfeeding moms, there is not a day that goes by without us thinking about our babies and feeding them! Day and night, this is our job, our privilege, and our joy.
It’s hard to explain in words the many emotions that we go through when we feed our babies with our bodies. It’s difficult, it’s natural, it makes us cry. We can try our best to make others aware of how special and important it is to breastfeed our children for as long as possible, but that message can only truly have its greatest impact by partaking in the act of breastfeeding itself. It changes us mothers deep from within. It’s not something that can easily be explained. The magic and beauty of breastfeeding has to be experienced for oneself.
Happy Breastfeeding Month to us mothers! If you’d like to have a keepsake with your breastmilk, here’s a coupon you can use on yourbreastmilk.com : “breastfeedmonth” through 8/31.
Much love from mom to mom!
