It’s National Breastfeeding Awareness Week!

Here is an awesome blog I found for mothers of color Blacktating

What are you doing to get the word out this week?



  1. Hey, I nursed my youngest til 4 1/2 or 5 yrs old. just at night from about 2 yrs on. But my mountains were too large to nurse in public, we’d go to the dressing room in a dept store or sit in the car.

  2. We don’t nurse in public much anymore as sunnyboy doesn’t usually need to when we’re out and about, but when he does I’ve had a few funny looks. Hopefully it’s given others confidence to do the same though. I think it’s so important to be as natural and open as possible about breastfeeding and full-term breastfeeding. I had only ever seen one person nurse a child before I had my own, and actually that was a 3 yr old. In a short time I’ll be nursing a 3 yr old too and if he needs to nurse in public then I will 🙂 I’m very happy that he’ll grow up knowing that’s how babies are fed!

  3. I love it! I nursed Ava in the Moby off and on when she was around 3 months. I could never get the hang of it. Hopefully I can get it down whenever the next little one arrives.

    I also nursed in public alot more the 2nd time around.

  4. Same as lemonapple — I’ve been able to nurse in the sling as I walk around or run errands or shop!
    It’s fabulous!

  5. National Breastfeeding Awareness Week! I had no idea!

    Hmm… I guess I’m nursing in public a lot more now that the weather has gotten so warm!
