For many moms who decide to breastfeed, that first latch comes shortly after their little one’s birth. To all moms out there, I do want to say… to celebrate breastfeeding is not meant to shame bottle feeding, formula, exclusive pumping, or any of the other ways you are getting your little one fed!
Each mom and baby has a different path and I am a firm believer (especially after having my own battles) that it is not always straight or a matter of right/wrong when it comes to nourishing your little one.
We honor the breastfeeding journey because it truly can be an unsung journey for moms out there, it can be hard to overcome 1 hurdle but most moms go through many hurdles and feel unseen.
Breastfeeding can be a difficult journey, but these breathtaking photos of moms nursing for the first time showcase the instant and stunning connection that forms between mom and baby.
