It's our first official Saturday picnic in the park and we managed to leave the apartment before noon and actually remember the essentials: @uppababy vista, @gathre mat, @adenandanais blankets, lunch fixings for me and @jakegoldbas and boobies for Will. (Should have also brought the boppy, some toys for @williamgoldbas and some reading material for me). But after a particularly fussy week, we're out and about and I remembered to brush my teeth (but @jakegoldbas didn't πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚) - I still call that a success!!!

Road trip pit stops are only dreadful when you can't get an ice cream cone the size of your baby's head! 🍦🍦🍦#camping #twoscoopsteve #mommying #thisiswhereibreastfeed #normalizebreastfeeding

Yup, #breastfeeding at the art exhibition. Baby's gotta eat. #14thfactory #thisiswhereibreastfeed

This is where I breastfeed-at festivals, on airplanes, on park benches, at restaurants and bars, at sporting events, in my own bed.
My baby turns one today and I look back on our year of breastfeeding. The closeness, the calmness, the connection...I will definitely miss it yet am ready to be done. My daughter is strong, healthy, independent!

Breastfeeding in public felt easy for me. I could leave my house with nothing more than a nursing cover and a couple of diapers. It made me proud to nourish my baby yet live as normal life as possible. I never felt the need to hide (other than under a nursing cover) or leave a dinner table; I never felt like I should feed my baby in a public restroom at a baseball game instead of in my seat. I felt free for not caring what others may think.
I was all my baby needed and was happy to feed her whenever and wherever she needed it. β€οΈοΈπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

@wellroundedny I was looking through vacation photos and I found this one my husband took of my daughter Aria and I on the beach in Tulum, Mexico and felt compelled to share it.
Prior to our vacation I mentally prepared myself for breastfeeding anytime and anywhere while we were at the resort and also discussed the possibilities with my husband. I saw a few other nursing mamas who helped boost my confidence and I really didn't feel awkward at all. Out of respect to my husband and based on our discussions prior to departure I covered up as well as I could keeping in mind we were on a beach and some women's swimsuits were more revealing than what could be seen when I was nursing. At one point my husband said something that meant more to me than quite possibly any compliment he's ever given to me; it was, "You look like you should be in a nursing magazine." The end result was feeling perfectly comfortable throughout the week and a beautiful photograph for our memories.

I missed #nationalbreastfeedingweek by one day, but it's still #nationalbreastfeedingmonth!
I have had the privilege of being able to exclusively breastfeed my first son and now I'm happy to do it again with my second. This time around, I was excited to have a summer baby so I could nurse him anytime and anywhere. I have nursed him in parks, standing up in playgrounds, and even at the Museum of Natural History! I'm lucky to live in NYC where I have yet to receive any grief about feeding my son without covering up.
Breastfeeding isn't always easy, but I consider it my temporary superpower ✊️#thisiswhereibreastfeed #wellroundedny

Happy Friday!! We've had the luxury of having an amazing baby nurse, Mara from @popins.inc (AND both sets of parents) to help us transition during these first two weeks of parenthood. It has been incredible to have all of these helping hands support us doing dishes and laundry, taking out the garbage, making dinner and feeding the baby in the middle of the night. πŸ™Today is Mara's last day. My hope is that I continue taking care of myself the best that I can so I can feel great and tend to my baby with energy, happiness and love. Now, off to breastfeed and hopefully have time to take a shower! πŸ’•πŸ’…πŸŒ·#bewellwithbaby #selfcare #selflove

Ivy's 5 month update is on the blog today!! Apparently it's #worldbreastfeedingweek so I wanted to share a little bit of our story.
I'm so proud to be exclusively breastfeeding, and blessed that I've been able to have this privilege. β€’πŸˆπŸˆ
So #thisiswhereibreastfeed: I used to cover up but I no longer give a shit, mainly because it's been so HOT. I breastfeed anywhere. I try to make it home before a feed but if we can't, we can't. I've breastfed while walking through an ikea, at a Starbucks, at a target, and in the car. I've never and will never breastfeed in a public restroom and I'm super lucky to live in NYC because no one has an issue with me feeding my daughter. β€’πŸˆπŸˆ
I did NOT think I would enjoy breastfeeding. Before I was pregnant I always talked about how it scared me and how I didn't think it could ever be for me. Everything changed when I read about all the health benefits + I saw Ivy's ability to latch right away. We never had any issues, so we are super lucky. The latch was always great and she goes back and forth between expressed milk in a bottle and the breast with no issues. β€’πŸˆπŸˆ
Something we rarely talk about is how exclusively breastfeeding is a PRIVILEGE. It's a lot of time and effort on the mother's part, and many women don't have the financial means to stay home and nurse exclusively for the first year like the APA recommends. I am blessed that running my own business has afforded me this privilege and this time with my daughter. β€’πŸˆπŸˆ
So people of the world: don't judge anyone's decision to NOT breastfeed. With maternity leave in the US seriously lacking, it is a difficult choice many mothers have to make. β€’πŸˆπŸˆ
And to anyone who takes issue with breastfeeding in public, or for longer than 3 months.... that's nice, but literally no one cares about your opinions so stop asking me to cover up or when I plan to wean 😘

Getting a little more personal than usual in honor of #worldbreastfeedingweek πŸ‘ΆπŸ» My breastfeeding journey was both wonderful and challenging. Ramona latched on immediately after birth and I never experienced much pain. However, I dealt with a low supply from the beginning and though it wasn't part of my plan, supplemented with formula from very early on. Shout out to @comotomobaby bottles for making the trasition from breast to bottle and back so seamless for Ramona. Despite the fact that I was probably only feeding her about 6 ounces a day, I was determined to keep it up as long as possible. By 8 months she weaned herself and is now exclusively formula fed. I had planned to breastfeed for at least a year however what I've learned is that we mamas don't get to plan everything (if hardly anything) but fed is always, always best.

It's #breastfeedingweek ! I feel very fortunate that I've been able to nurse my little babe. I know how challenging it is for some and I don't take for granted how lucky we are to have had only minor challenges in our breastfeeding journey!
I truly believe in the statement that #fedisbest and however you choose to feed your child is amazing!
This experience has been so wonderful. Since I put Sawyer on a pretty regimented sleeping schedule, she takes most of her naps in her crib. I love that it gives me an opportunity to snuggle her and hold her close. The way she looks into my eyes, crosses her little feet and plays with my shirt - I'm so in love 😍!!! She's a totally delicious chunk and I'm so amazed that my body is giving her all that nourishment. So here's a picture of me nursing my girl on the lake and serving some serious stank face πŸ˜‚. In a society so obsessed with women's bodies and breasts why do we feel like we need to cover up or hide while feeding our babies?? It's time to #normalizebreastfeeding. It's what our breasts were made for and I'm going to feed my girl wherever and whenever I choose! πŸ‘ŠπŸ» #boobolution #thisiswhereibreastfeed @wellroundedny #breastfeedingwithoutfear
