Missing Breastfeeding (Anonymous)

February 19, 2008

I have two beautiful boys and breastfed them both. I loved my pregnant and nursing body. I felt at peace with my body image, radiant with life and power. After weaning our 2nd and last son, I’ve found myself obsessing about my breasts. They were so full of life for many years, nourishing our boys with food and comfort. I’m trying to adjust to their new size and shape… missing the way I was. I seriously considered plastic surgery, even went to consults and almost scheduled the procedure. In the end, I decided that I couldn’t let breasts define how I feel about myself. So, thank you breasts for a job well-done!

    You’re absolutely stunning in these pictures. I see the glow so clearly. You radiate love and happiness. Pregnancy suits you. *smiles*

    As for your breasts, life changes us, and if we don’t look at the alterations as better or worse, but instead, different, we’ll be able to cope with just about anything. Ideals are made to be broken.

    I wish you the best.

    I love breastfeeding my 15 month old girl and I know I’ll miss it dearly once our time is done. It is a wonderful bond that we share. You look beautiful pregnant! n
