Mama’s milk

I can hardly believe that it’s been a year since I weaned Girly. I wrote before about the many health and financial benefits of breastfeeding. I also feel strongly that breastfeeding helps with the bonding process, which you can’t put a price tag on.


Truthfully, I kind of miss the closeness and the down time that nursing demands. It’s important to take pauses in your day, especially since I’m so apt to go-go-go. But it is truly awesome to have such portable and free “food.”


I know not all moms can breastfeed, but that why I also love the idea of breast-milk banks. There’s a formal bank (by a friend of Hubby’s) called NW Mother’s Milk BankIn Portland there is also a Facebook group started by another friend of mine called Local Breast Milk to connect moms with/without milk. 


I found this video awhile ago, and I love seeing moms nurse their babies. We are nursing our future…





Did you breastfeed? 
Do you miss it at all?

    We still nurse – DS is almost 19 months. There has been some forced weaning (no more overnight, for example) and natural weaning (the world is just too cool to sit still for him). I know it is good for him, and it lowers my risk of breast cancer. We’ll keep doing this for a while…
