Raise your hand if you love #Babywearing 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ - What has been the benefit of wearing your baby for you and your family? Where you able to #breastfeed while babywearing? — ❤️ —
"[Babywearing] is your baby’s physical development. All the way from hip and back strengthening to healthy sleeping patterns. It helps you get more attuned to your baby’s body language and cues so you can react more quickly and efficiently when your child is hungry or needs changing. Since it also soothes the baby and ensures a secure, healthy attachment, wearing your baby will provide you with a peace of mind that would otherwise seem impossible. " Zara Lewis, BFW guest contributor

Do you feel you and your baby are to ready wean? How long has your breastfeeding journey lasted and how do you know its coming to an end? Jessica Speer, one of our writers shares her thoughts 👇🏻 -> @xojessicaspeer
— ❤️ —
"Breastfeeding is a mutual relationship between baby and mother. Weaning should occur when you and your baby are both ready. But how do you know? If baby seems disinterested in the breast, this may be a good time to start. If baby is still giving you cues that they still want to nurse, this may be an indication that now is not the right time to wean. On the flip side- breastfeeding over one year has many advantages to baby and momma. If nursing is doing good for you both, continuing is a great option as well. Go with your gut." - Jessica Speer, BFW writer. Read more about it in our website. — ❤️ —

Had you decided you were going to #breastfeed when you were pregnant? Yes, no? Why?
— ❤️ —
"Breastfeeding was something I knew I definitely would do for my baby. I
don't remember when I made that decision along my journey of pregnancy,
but I knew that I didn't want to formula feed. I read a ton of books
while pregnant which made me aware of all the amazing things
breastfeeding can provide for my baby. One of the best books I read was
La Leche League's book, "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding." I decided to
breastfeed because I read about all the health benefits my son gets
from breastmilk. His health is a top priority to me so this just made
sense. I love the bond we've created now from breastfeeding as he's been
exclusively breastfed now for 6 months!" - Kimmy Meyer (Photographed) - 2018 BFW photo participant and NYC mom — ❤️ —

What is or what was your #breastfeeding goal? 3, 6, 12, 18+ months? — ❤️ —
"Breastfeeding is pivotal to his childhood years. Mama milk keeps him growing: healthy and strong. It’s always been the same, and it always will." - Emily Lipscombe, BFW writer

We'd love to know, what are your thoughts about teaching your baby to "self-soothe"? One of our BFW writers shares her thoughts that will leave you truly thinking about it! Let's open the discussion with love and respect! 👇🏻👇🏻
— ❤️ —
"Can I please just illustrate the obsurdity of “teaching” self soothing, which is essentially just letting your child figure things out on his own without any sort of preparation or tools in his toolbelt. Imagine that your partner comes home from work upset. His colleagues completely misinterpreted a proposal that he spent hours working on. He feels misunderstood, angry, sad, and confused. So you say: “I hear you. I will stay close by. But you really need to sit with this and figure out your feelings on your own. I’m not going to hug or cuddle you because you are completely capable calming down without me. I am doing this for your own good. You need to realize that this stuff happens to millions of people all over the world every day... I’m doing this because I love you.” We know it sounds crazy, so why do we do it? - Somehow, somewhere in parenting history, we have decided that there is one demographic that should be the exception to the rule when it comes to offering reassurance. The exception is the babies. The babies need to learn how to be alone... They need to learn how to brave it alone. Sleep alone, travel alone, play alone. At least some of the time. Why are the babies the unlucky ones? Mothers are tired. Sleep deprived. Crisis moments with partners and BFFs happen a few times a year. Crisis moments with babies happen every hour, day and night. We are struggling." Anne Kathryn Rice — ❤️ —

Raise your hand if you've supplemented with formula and still managed to breastfeeding afterwards? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️
— ❤️ —
"Formula is not the enemy - If your lactation consultant or care provider suggests that you supplement your breastmilk with formula, remember that it is not the end of the world. Many babies become champion exclusive breastfeeders even if they have had supplemental milk, either from a bottle or another way. Some mothers prefer to save formula for a last resort, some mothers weigh all the pros and cons and decide that supplementing with formula is how they will mother best. It’s up to you. Remember it’s your baby, and your body." - Anne Kathryn Rice, BFW writer -> @lovegrowdiscover — ❤️ —

There is no such thing as a "perfect life" nor a "perfect mother" yet a lot of times that is what we strive for! As women, as mothers, we need to sit back and give ourselves credit for being the mother that our children love and need. Mama, YOU are enough, you are all they want and need. Tag your mama friend to remind her how much you care for her💕 👇🏻
— ❤️ —
"The next time you’re struggling with that mommy guilt, or wondering if you are enough for your children, just remember that your short comings, your weaknesses, and imperfections do serve a purpose. Repeat aloud this mantra to yourself “I am a good mother.” Kids will be good enough adults if we give our good enough selves to them now. It’s not perfection, but it’s real and that is enough." - Paige Christian, BFW writer — ❤️ —

How many single mommies do we have in our beloved community? This post is for YOU ❤️ To all those mammas out there, know that we appreciate you in every way! 👇🏻
— ❤️ —
"To all the Single moms out there, playing both mom and dad roles for their little ones. You Super Moms are the Rock Stars of this world.It takes a village to raise a child, they say. But, you’re out here raising your kid, or kids, on your own.You’re working your 8, or 10, or 12 hour shifts. Then picking up your child and taking them home to work another 12 or more hours as mommy and daddy.You’re making dinner, as nutritious as you can. I’m sure you’re finding whatever left overs your kid hasn’t eaten as the appetizer to your meal. A meal that you probably don’t have time to sit and enjoy leisurely.You try to keep bath time as dry as possible, and bed time routine as quiet as you conceivably can.After the house is silent and everyone is asleep, when it’s past 10pm or so, you make time to unwind from the day.It could be as simple as catching up on social media on your phone. Maybe, responding to text messages or simply taking a shower for as long as you want. Because lets face it, it’s probably the only time of the day when you’re not working." - Betty Rose, BFW writer -> @adaywithella — ❤️ —

#Toddler - emotionally unstable pint-sized dictator with the uncanny ability to know exactly how far to push towards utter insanity before reverting to a lovable cuddle-monster! 😂 #forreal — ❤️ —

What does #motherhood mean to you now? 🤰🏻
— ❤️ —
"Motherhood is beautiful, messy, and meaningful. Our soul is found in the quiet moments when we have to be still, patient, and loving. It is found in the dirty hands that reach out to be held. The cries from nightmares that seek mom’s face and scent. Our souls are strengthened when we learn to give our hearts away, piece by piece, and we realize we are not in control. We are not in control of our clean house, the bills, the way we look, an uninterrupted night’s sleep. We are not in control of our emotions, our ability to predict how our child will react during a day, or our own vulnerability. But above all, above the mess and the grace, the perseverance and the race… above he daily grind, feeling we have lost our mind – we find we are whole, because in Motherhood, we have found our soul." - Rachel Price, BFW writer -> @rachelprice1213 — ❤️ —

"The breast is best and fed is best campaigns have completely missed the mark. I realize that people feel passionately about their “side,” but choosing sides is a dangerous game when it comes to new mothering. New mothers are learning.They are learning to listen to their instincts. And they matter more than breastmilk or formula. Food doesn’t raise babies. Moms do." - Anne Kathryn Rice, BFW Writer -> @lovegrowdiscover — ❤️ —
We are curious mamas, what is your opinion on this matter? Let's open a respectful discussion, we want to hear your thoughts. 💕
