HNT #4 - Got Breastmilk?

Aaaawwww . . . I love this boy! Why does the site of nursing make so many people uncomfortable, especially in public?

It took me awhile to decide whether or not to post this picture and then I realized that I don't care what people think. I am not "exposed" like a bead-lovin' woman on Bourbon Street and this is something that I am proud to be able to do for my baby and my family.


We are building an incredible relationship and bond. Loo nursed until she was eighteen months old and loves watching her brother (without jealousy). She views breasts as something that have a healthy purpose and not only a sex object (like so many of the high schoolers I teach).

When G-ma B was visiting right after Loco was born, Loo told her, "G-ma, Loco is inside getting some boobie milk. I love boobie milk, but I drink from a big girl cup now!" You gotta love honesty like that - LOL!
