~THE ART OF BREASTFEEDING IN PUBLIC~
I remember many times where I breastfed my babies in public and honestly the reactions I've witnessed have all been very powerful and insightful. I get to challenge peoples way of thinking as well as have a closer look into how much healing, through unlearning very bad programmings, is SO DESPERATELY needed in this world. Most of the times I was treated with respect, meaning people would stare for no more than three seconds and look away or smile with content that I was a bad ass mama who was far from being conventional. Some would start conversations about how much my actions were not "the norm" in America and how common it was in their country to see women breastfeeding their babies anywhere, like I was. Then the others, well, they would look in a way that made me question if they believed they were watching child-pornography in public as oppose to a mother, ever so naturally, feeding her baby. Speaking of taboos right?
How else do we break this cycle other than by just doing it, helping others understand our reasoning with knowledge and information and empowering women to have the courage to do it as well. Let us not starve our babies for people, or bottlefeed to accommodate anyone when our babies are exclusively breastfed, or go to a public restroom where the most nastiest of things have taken place whenever our babies get hungry in public! I was never that person and will NEVER be. As my baby feeds on demand, I will continue to do it, ON DEMAND...
While demanding respect for my space as a woman and mother by simply being powerful enough to be unapologetic in doing exactly what nature does!
STAND IN TRUTH!
Ps. Baby fell asleep right after nursing ❤️❤️ and my husband captured me putting away my magical tatas 😂 🙏🏽😊 ______________________________________________
