National Breastfeeding Awareness Week

This week in the UK it's National Breastfeeding Awareness Week.  It's not about guilt-tripping anyone or being holier-than-thou.  It's all about raising awareness, providing up to date and relevant information and support, and NORMALISING breastfeeding. Here are a few links with helpful information:

To show my support, here is a collection of photos of me feeding my daughter.  Hopefully by doing this I will demonstrate that it's nothing to be embarrassed about, or hidden and that you don't have to expose your entire breast in order to do it!

And with no intention of stopping any time soon!


  1. Dam!
    I never got to do this.
    But since my mother was a drug-taking, chain-smoking, under-nourished, coffee-swilling lunatic, perhaps it was for the best.
    I will never know.

    Lovely to see :)
