But does anyone understand that this #extendedbreastfeeding thing is more than nutrition? Shit, #breastfeeding is more than nutrition. He's not eating. He's watching Bubble Guppies and nursing because he's cutting 2 teeth. He'll nurse because he's shy/insecure/nervous/bored. Whateverthefuck. It's an integral piece of development and I will nurse him until he feels that he no longer needs it. Even if I am fed the fuck up with it at times. This particular round of teething is wearing HELL on my nerves. Just fucking cut thru already!

Saturdays are for unscheduled cuddles. For tendrils of wispy hair and precious baby smells. For messy hair and no make up and glasses. For lazy mornings and snuggled up feeding. For long stretches and contented sighs. Saturdays are for slowing down.

Breastfeeding into toddlerhood has been the most unexpected delightful part of nursing for me. I had no plans to nurse into toddlerhood, but here I am doing it for a third time and it's been blissful. No worries about milk supply, so laid back, and the best parenting tool and comforting tool I have for my busy guy who is learning and exploring most of the day. I LOVE @theplantifulmama says about breastfeeding her toddler and what a beautiful place to be nursing! ・・・
"A part of me felt like I couldn't share this picture without an informational caption, a "disclaimer" of sorts to explain why I'm (still) nursing my toddler. I was going to explain the overwhelming scientific evidence that proves breastmilk's nutritional, immunological, and psychological benefits continue well into toddlerhood, and that studies have shown meeting a child's dependency needs during the early years contributes to independence as the child grows. But I shouldn't have to explain this. This, nursing past infancy, is normal."

Awaken and Highest Potential diffusing on this perfect Saturday! 💕🎉 @willowandthorn_

"We are nearing the end of our breastfeeding journey and as a result he has been ridiculously clingy! (Reasons why I can't even take a pic by myself)
Knowing that we will no longer be breastfeeding soon is bittersweet for me, in the beginning I made too much milk and then not enough when he was about 3months but I was passionate about breastfeeding so I tried everything. What worked best for me was increasing my water intake and eating fenugreek. For mamas who are having issues with their supply I would highly recommend @mrspatels fenugreek chocolate bars not only because they're vegan-friendly but it's run by a mom and packed with nutrients. After taking it for about a week my supply went right up!
PS. I no longer need to take anything for my supply, I still eat the bars because they're yummy." Reposted from @myepiphany •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

When you gotta be in a wedding... and breastfeed your child... #momlife #extendedbreastfeeding #breastfeeding

I nursed my girl for almost 4 yrs! Aubree was a couple months shy of 4 yrs old when she self-weaned. Breastfeeding my babies has been my most challenging and rewarding journeys of motherhood. With Kasen I weaned him myself before he was ready. It was painful(to me) & upsetting for him. With Aubree I knew I wanted to do something different and make the ending a better one. Allowing her to self-wean did just that...pain free and all smiles. All nursing mommas out there I highly encourage YOU to look into allowing your baby to self-wean. 💗 #mybreastfeedingstory #breastfeedingsupport #breastfeeding #selfweaning #nursingatoddler #fulltermnursing #extendedbreastfeeding #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeeding

This perfect little angel baby nursling of mine.

I don't have the time.
I don't have the money.
I don't have the confidence.
I don't have the SUPPORT.
.
Translation: I don't think I deserve it.
.
Can I tell you something right now?
.
YOU DO. .
Quit telling yourself otherwise. Quit telling yourself this isn't for you.
.
Yes, it is.
.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. .
Registration for the next accountability group ends tomorrow. If any of this speaks to you, let's talk. 💜
.
***Shoutout to my WONDER WOMEN, my TRIBE of amazing GO GIVERS who stepped to their self-care and did this for THEM. I'm a proud coach 😊

".... And she loved a little boy very very much even more than she loved herself" Shel Silverstein

These last two days have been very hard. The two closest adult people in my life have somewhat turned on me. I feel like I'm being judged. Things that I'm very passionate about (not veganism in this case) are being judged. How I choose to educate my children is being judged. By a close family member. And it hurts. Because this person is very open minded and I've looked up to them my whole life. And to be verbally attacked for my beliefs on how I want to raise my children hurt me. And this was after I had reached out to them. I thought maybe they would be a safe place for me to talk about my life. But they aren't. I don't think anyone is safe. I don't open up to people and this makes me not want to anymore.

And then with the other person, we are having a complete breakdown of communication. We are getting in fights based just on tone of voice. Things are just ridiculous.

And usually if I was having a tough time I'd go to one of these people. But now I have no one.
There's just this sadness in my heart. I want to let it go. But I don't know what the next step is. I'm tired of forgiving people. I let people walk all over me. I don't want to fight. I don't want anything. I just don't want people hurting me anymore.

When you have been staring at a computer screen styling for hours straight... yup. Clarity. Thank you YL!!! 🙌🏻✨🌿👊🏻

The school year has officially started for us! Clarity (as you can probably guess from the name) is great for study time to improve focus. We used it today during my son's reading program. It smells great, too!
