Breastfeeding awareness week - do you have a breastfeeding 'story'?

This week (19th June to 26th June) is breast feeding awareness week and all across the country proud mothers are taking to the streets, the shopping centers, the parks, and showing that breast feeding is natural, it’s normal, it’s nothing to be scared of, or embarrassed about, and it’s proven to be the best start for our babies.

Everyone who’s had a baby and given breastfeeding a go has a breastfeeding story – well this is mine.

 

I come from a pretty liberal family so grew up with quite an open attitude towards my body. However, the changes it went through when I was pregnant sort of freaked me out. I struggled to look at myself in the mirror, or rather my growing belly, and where my breasts aren’t exactly small, I was quite embarrassed at how large they grew over 9 months. I loved the feel of my baby inside me, moving around, I just felt a little weird about my body becoming something else, having a different, very visible, purpose.  Even though I assumed I would always breast feed my babies (I remember as a young child trying to breast feed my dolls after my mother had my little brother), I couldn’t think about the reality of it. My boobs were my boobs, and I couldn’t imagine them in the mouth of a little baby.
