My Breastfeeding Story – World Breastfeeding Week

Today kicks off World Breastfeeding Week (1 – 7 August 2018). I want to tell you a little about my breastfeeding experience in support of this week. I am delighted to see so many women on social media posting a photo of them breastfeeding and telling their story!

Without sharing and talking, nothing gets changed! So if you have a picture or story, consider sharing it this week, on your social media or talk to family or friends about it. Talking opens up communication and acceptance.

I have 3 kids and breastfed them all. I wrote about the difficulty I had feeding my first child and the lack of breastfeeding support there was in 2007. Since then I’ve seen a lot more support and so many women speaking out about their right to feed their babies in public without having looks or comments made.
