This is not a polemic post on breastfeeding (so much fuss has been raised after Elle's Magazine published on its cover a model feeding her 4 months old baby). But I'd like to share my (current) experience. I do breastfeed. Seven to eight times a day. This mean such moments are driving my daily life. I felt so much nervous, shy and maybe bigot at the idea of breastfeed my child in public. But I was at the point that if I wanted to go out with friends, take a walk in the city centre or enjoy a meal out, I had to change attitude. The first few times I did it when with friends and their babies. It's when I've realised there's nothing to be scared or ashamed about (tough some men eyes do make me feel uncomfortable...). This is the most natural thing in the world. One of the positive side of breastfeeding is exactly that you can do it anytime, anywhere. No need to microwaves, or go to bar to warm milk or carry bottles around! My LittleAngel is just 5 months old and he is not interested in food at all! This mean I still have some time ahead to keep on breastfeeding!
Here below: two pictures of me breastfeeding in public [one at a byke race, one at the restaurant on Mother's day] and Elle's cover.
Me and my child, a true love story. He was born at seven months and needs extra cuddles from his mama. To enjoy each other company and stay more close, the marsupio was totally necessary for both of us.
Not too mention how useful it is in those circumstances were handsfree are required. This marsupio is fromBoba: organic cotton, light, very comfortable and easy to wear. I would recommend it to those like me are looking for a practical way to carry around your baby.
The marsupio's ergonomic design makes the baby feeling nicely wrapped and myself not struggling for his weight.
I was this close to shut down this blog but it was like put aside a part of me.... This blog may not be popular or cool. No magazines talk about it. But it's my little space for writing, express myself and have fun!
After a few challenging months as a new mum, I am ready to go back to blogging :)
Topics may be different due to new interests and life, but I hope you'll enjoy it anyway.
