Today we share Michelle and her little gem Noemi on part of their Breastfeeding adventure. I just love how Michelle came to this session full of smiles and ready to document this part of her life with her Daughter. So many Mommies set up their sessions and never show up for fear of what the world will think. But Michelle just pushed though and is helping to teach many others in her life just how amazing this gift is. Which I admire with all my heart.
And of course their matching outfits just set this session over the top! They weren’t only cute… They were the most sweetest to capture.
I made sure to ask just a few questions to better help any other Mommies who might be seeing this Blog today… To show what we Mommies face when we are out in the world feeding our babies.
I hope you all enjoy!
And to any Mommies out there today reading this… Fearing the world, wondering if you can keep going, maybe you don’t have the home support you need. No matter what your reasons or thoughts are. I hope this gives you a little more strength. ❤

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE: As a Labor and Delivery Nurse, I try to educate and promote the importance of breastfeeding to new and experienced mommies. Breastfeeding has proven to be beneficial in all aspects of growth for a growing baby time and time again. It is easier for baby to digest, increases IQ, provides baby with stronger immunity, decreases allergies, acts as medicine for sick baby, and the list goes on. In turn, is it also beneficial for mom. It aides with weight loss, decreases risk for cancer, and post-partum depression to name a few. It is highly recommended by pediatricians because of the benefits it provides for little ones, so why is there a stigma of breastfeeding in public? If anything, mothers who breastfeed their children should be congratulated and recognized for a job well done, for having the patience, dedication, and courage to continue or attempted to breastfeed their children. It’s been done for centuries and is the REAL PURPOSE of breasts. People need to learn to get their minds out of the gutter.
