It's All About Boobs In August

I never knew there was such a thing as a World Breastfeeding Month until a few days ago.  If you haven't heard it's now so be prepared to hear about boobs, boobs and more boobs.  To make my breastfeeding advocate friends proud I am dedicating this post to them.  It's been 3.5 years since my boobs have retired but breastfeeding is the best feeling in the world so I can't help but crashing the party. 

The first week was hell, it helped to have mama helping me out.


It was so convenient to just whip out the boob.  Especially on planes!


It gave me an excuse to watch Big Brother.


Forgetting to put your boob back in your top at a party is always fun.


Who can resist a milkdrunk baby?


The second time around was so easy I didn't need ridiculous amounts of lanolin.

  1. Cheers! :)
    You are so brave and confident to have your photos taken while nursing! I can't do that! :))) I'm the type who would need privacy and cover-ups to be able to nurse comfortably. Failed at first, my second time was a breeze as well!

  5. I never really made a conscious effort to have a boobing picture of me taken but I'm glad I have these. The only thing I regret is how huge I look in all of them. Hahaha.

  6. Love, love, love the photos, Rone! I have a few of Vito nursing, but I didn't have your raw gorgeousness, so I won't be posting them anytime soon, huhuhu.

    My mom was there for me, too. I wouldn't have gotten through hell week (what I call the first week of boobing) without her.

  13. Barni, I was living in Spain when I was breastfeding. There was no such things as nursing covers and baring a breast was nothing to them. I didn't realize it was such an issue till I came home one Christmas friends would throw a lampin over me when I would do it in public.

  14. Haha! Not surprised. But if you buy a copy of WM, you might be heartened to know that you're in good company. Hopefully, evolution is taking place, however slowly.

  18. Jenny, that picture was taken by my sister in law. She didn't even notice until I commented on the photo posted on Facebook. Which is a good thing I suppose.
