My Breastfeeding Body (Anonymous)

March 15, 2007

This is a picture of me, as I am now, as a Mother who has breastfed her baby for 4 months and will continue to do so for years to come.

These are the heavy, swinging, sagging breasts that nurish and comfort my dear son.

A small star tattoo reminds me where my boobs used to sit. A box of cute bras under my bed remind me what size I used to wear.

But that was another time. Now is the time to toss out those D’s and embrace these G’s that embrace my son. Now is the time to cherish the tattoos of Motherhood.

    Beautiful post and pictures! I am pregnant and expecting in October. Your picture nursing made me ache deep inside and reminded me of that forgotten space in my heart that is yearning to hold and nourish a child again. Thank you

    All I can say is, you go girl!! Congrats on your little one. I have been breastfeeding for 19 months now. It is the greatest thing in the whole world to watch your little one grow!

    Reminds me of my girlfriend. My Son is 1, very strong & healthy. I put it down to breastfeeding and not getting formula powder. Women make a huge a sacrifice when they have a child, I feel it is worth it, but I know a lot of men are not supportive and become very critical of “Mother’s Medals”.

    Hope your Son continues to grow and stay healthy.

    What a gorgeous pic of you feeding your baby! My breasts are almost the same as yours, but with a large amount of stretchmarks. I am still feeding my 13 month old too and hope to continue for a long while yet :)
