This weekend marked our 3 month breastfeeding milestone, with a goal of 1 year. It definitely has not been an easy one. Having to work full-time, and maintain a healthy supply has been the most challenging thing so far. Pumping has not been something that I’ve enjoyed. I’ve had clogged ducts twice, which hurt like a mofo, but I’ve pushed through it, and did not give up. The benefits of breastfeeding far outweigh the challenges that I’ve faced. It’s sad to know that this is still a taboo subject, yet breasts can be used on social media platforms as sexual objects, but feeding a baby off of them is “offensive” to so many people. This isn’t my first rodeo when it comes to breastfeeding, but it is as far as social media is concerned. So I’ve decided to use my platform as a motivator to those mama’s that may feel alone in their breastfeeding journey. So many demands, and expectations are placed on us. I’ve decided to kill that noise, and just do me. Unapologetically🤱🏽✨ #treeoflife #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmom #milkymama
Anything you can do, I can do breastfeeding! Available now 💖Photo: @hello_miss_lovely
Use boobs to sell everything from cars to cheeseburgers and nobody cares. Use boobs to feed a baby in public and everyone loses their minds. 🤯🤱🏻 #breastfeedingmama #normalizebreastfeeding
Back to work tomorrow. I'm not even close to being emotionally ready...
From a year ago to now. 9/15/2018, they day I thought I was done trying to nurse Alyssandra. I was going to give it just a little more time before I gave up & strictly pumped breastmilk for Alyssandra. It was heartbreaking, I felt so defeated. But I powered through. Through the damn dentist telling me I wasn't trying hard enough, through well meaning family members saying I'd done enough. . Thankfully we were lucky enough to get in to see a Doctor who specializes in breastfeeding. After 1 session with her, changing bottles & trying new techniques; Alyssandra finally started to latch for nursing sessions. And I haven't looked back since. . I fought through a class 3 tounge tie, a class 3 lip tie, nipple confusion, and a very strong willed child. Not to mention the occasional clogged duct. But I've been able to breastfeed my daughter the way I wanted. . Now she's a year old & we're still going strong with breastfeeding, our goal is to breastfeed for at least 2 years then naturally wean at Alyssandra's own pace. #momlife #stayathomemom #sahm #sahmlife #breastfedbaby #breastmilk #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeeding #brealfie #nevergiveup #itsbeenhard #worthit #informedisbest #ourjourney #motherthoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #honestmamahood
This journey isn’t about perfection. It’s about becoming a little better every day. And over time, those small changes add up to huge progress. ⁣ ⁣ My postpartum journey has been anything but perfect. There’s been ups and downs, days of high motivation and days of zero excitement, weeks of passion and weeks of stress and anxiety. Through it all, I may have been moving slow, but I never stopped moving forward. ⁣ ⁣ My goals are to get my movement in daily {in realty, it happens most days}, flood my mind with personal development everyday to keep my mental and emotional health strong and to eat healthy {most of the time} to fuel my body and not stress when I veer off a little. ⁣ ⁣ It’s not a quick fix, it’s not a diet, it’s not something I “fail off and get back on,” it’s a lifestyle and a journey to better myself in every way I can. ⁣ ⁣ Our October healthy & fit online club starts in 3 weeks! Are you ready to commit to you and better yourself in every way possible?? Drop your fav emoji below to join! 🥰
I never thought I’d be that mom nursing my baby wherever, whenever. But I’ve nursed at restaurants, in meetings (in person and on conference calls), in the middle of Target, during church, on the beach— you know pretty much wherever Ellie and I have been when she’s hungry. . With Layla I spent a lot of time in the car or in her nursery with the door closed. And to be honest, nursing in a quiet space is still my favorite. But now that I have two little ones, I don’t always have the luxury of being at home in the rocking chair. And also I’ve realized that getting my baby fed is the most important thing. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It was awkward at first. And I still feel a little weirded out when people watch. (Like, can I just feed my kid, here?!!) But it’s gotten easier over time, and I’ve become more confident. . So yesterday on the beach, I walked over to hang with my family while Ellie nursed and I asked Aaron to take a photo. I know this time is fleeting and one day I’ll miss these moments when comforting Ellie is just this easy. ❤️

"Moms everywhere are hopping on the breastfeeding-tattoo train, largely to commemorate this epic and life-giving thing our bodies are, amazingly, able to do. And, you know, because having an image of breastfeeding on your body forever is just a little prettier than an image of, say, childbirth." - @sheknows⁠ ⁠ 📷: @audrey.scaramus⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #motherhood #pregnancy #momlife #baby #pregnant #newborn #postpartum #nursing #momtobe #maternity #bumpstyle #mom #newmom #fourthtrimester #childbirth #mumlife #normalizebreastfeeding #lactationlab #breastfeedingtattoo #tattoo #breastfeedingart

Tonight, myself and another photographer, Kailey Piper (Kailey  Piper Film and Photo) hosted about 15 women in my backyard  for breastfeeding photos.  We've done this event , yearly, for the last 6 years.  Every year, the thing I love to watch most, are the connections made.  New friendships form, mom hacks shared, laughs, smiles, and all the squishy baby goodness anyone could possibly handle.  Community is what motherhood needs most, and yet, it seems so rare and hard to find.  Soon after I had Lukas, I was struggling.  Life was heavy.  I knew I needed to get out of the house.  I also needed to go somewhere where a milk and spit up soaked shirt was socially acceptable.  I tried a local Le Leche meeting and it was exactly what my heart needed.  I didnt really need nursing support, but I did need community.  Those women are still some of my best friends and the people I run to whenever life feels heavy.  Reach out mama.  Dont go at this alone.  Go to a Le Leche meeting or a babywearing meeting.  Find another mama at the library or the park and just say hi.  Its scary and a little awkward sometimes, but you never know, you might just find your tribe.
