My son and I fell asleep after our nightly feeding when he was about 3 months old. I just love this picture because he looks so peaceful, but it’s not really one of those pictures that you can add to the family photo album.

    This picture is so adorable! I love how calm and comfortable he looks.

    There’s nothing more precious than that…he’s so happy and content.

    love the picture, it reminds me of nursing my own babies

    My DH was too embarrassed to take any pix of us nursing. But I do have a few of her zonked out afterward and I know she just nursed. :DI would keep this pix in a special album of pix you cherish. I have a box of special “mommy” memories that it (if I had one like it) would go in. :D

    I believe that is the happiest baby of all time!

    I love this picture of you nursing your baby. It’s precious. He looks so content to be with his mommy.

    That’s exactly how my 2-week old looks right after she finishes nursing — She loves to use my breast as a pillow. =)

    All I can say is AWWWW! That is such a beautiful baby, and how content and peaceful he looks! I like that special mommy memories album another posted… That sounds like a really good idea!

    I’m the one who sent in the picture, and I just wanted to say Thank You for all the wonderful comments. My husband took this picture, and I didn’t even realize he had taken it until I was downloading the pictures onto the computer. I had it saved in a different folder so that I wouldn’t accidentally show it to anyone, but I looked at it often. It really is an amazing experience to nurse a baby, and I feel so lucky and proud to be a nursing mother. Every night I rush home from work so that I can spend time in bed nursing my little one.This website is so beautiful. It makes me realize that my new body shape is normal, and nothing to be ashamed of.

    I have a picture very similar (acually I have 5, my husband is reluctant to delete good photos, even if they are essentially duplicates). They ARE in my family album. Maybe one day they won’t be… but at the moment they are (She’s 2 now). Initially I was embarrassed and kept meaning to move them… then I got used to feeding in public and my embarassement faded. Even about photos.It’s a beautiful photo.

    You know, I think it’s sad that you feel (as I do as well) that this picture is not one for the “family album” It’s a truely beautiful picture, loving, and a perfect example of a happy caring loving mom!A beautiful photo, a beautiful memory, one which you will treasure forever!

    I have breastfeeding photos in my daughter’s album (and some for my son’s once I get it done). I covered the photo with a piece of vellum, attached along one edge so the vellum can be lifted. This way a casual observer can get the idea yet when I (or someone else) want the detail, I lift the vellum and there’s the photo. Just a thought ;)

    Of course you should put into the family album. The peace and contentment will be testimony of your love for each other when he is 16 and has weird peircings, friends and taste in music. That is a beautiful picture!

    Wow…he’s so perfect! Just so amazingly cute and perfect!

    Oh, I love that picture. He is so sweet and peaceful and snuggly.

  • R Wednesday, July 19, 2006, 7:50 pm

    Oh, what a beautiful gift you’ve given him in nursing. This picture is just beautiful!

    I just want to cry… i just ‘discovered’ this sight, and am slowly, but steadily, gaining confidence and shedding embarressment…I just wish I had a photo like this one.. My husband did take one once of me in the bath and I erased it! I am now ashamed of my so called modesty… What a beautiful memory… I pray for the day I can be as sincere and brave as you and all the women here…what a terrible work our society has done to so many of us women to have to hide such beauty…Thank you soooo much for posting this… it is so simple a thing, but does such wonders for my soul
