« Me loves me mommy... | Main | World breastfeeding week! »


I nursed both of my girls, and truly enjoyed the special bond I shared with each of them during that time. Love your pic., too, by the way - very precious!

Wow. Beautiful picture! Thanks fro posting.

It is a beautiful picture and one you should rightly be very proud of :)

G looks so content...

I actually seen a debate on blogging baby and wrote a letter to the babytalk magazine to let them know how I enjoyed the picture. I found a quote from a mom that said she had to shredd the cover so her 13 year old son didn't get any ideas. Ideas? Ideas for what? I don't get it. I was unable to breast feed and really feel like I missed out on something. The cover of the magizine was tastful and not flaunting anything wrong

Beautiful picture. I look forward to breastfeeding when I'm a mom and the way you describe it makes it even more special:)

Lisa, rock on with your picture! That is precious. I am SO looking forward to breastfeeding Chloe and experiencing that God given mommy/baby bond. My friend Candace
wrote a whole post about this because she was so outraged. We are one of the only countries in the world that have such a hang up about breastfeeding. It is shamefull. God has designed our bodies to do miraculous things like create a baby inside our bodies, then give them everything they need to grow and thrive on the outside. That is beyond amazing and beautiful!

Wow breastfeeding is such a touchy subject and I don't feel that it should be. I have breastfed both of my boys and didn't enjoy personally so I only did it for their own health benefits but I'm glad you enjoy it so much and did it for that long. Not many women make it that long so Good Job! And I feel there is nothing wrong with that picture at all!

The picture is BEAUTIFUL!

Wonderful story!

I agree with everything you wrote. Great post! When I saw the picture I thought, what's wrong with it? Is it really the first time a picture of a baby nursing has been on a cover? REALLY? Maybe that type of picture is usually only on the inside of the magazine?

I am always confused as to why a woman wouldn't even TRY to nurse her baby. I bet you're right, though. It could have a lot to do with the conflicting messages from the media. Like you, one of my favorite experiences in my life was nursing my first baby. Also like you, we had some difficulty. I never got to a point where I could just nurse her...she ALWAYS wanted more! But, I did keep it up for 6 months. And my experience did not deter me from nursing my second baby. Second time around was better, though we still did some supplementing. I'm hoping that if we have a third child, the third time will be the charm!

I love the picture - it is artistic and touching. I absolutely love nursing my babies - it is the most powerful gift I can give them. Rock on Lisa. I have that issue of BabyTalk - it's a nice picture too. Some people have nothing better to do with their time than bitch. I have work for them - my desk needs to be organized.
