Breastfeeding Moms Share their Tips - National Breastfeeding Month

I remember those moments, his eyes fluttering and his tiny little body relaxing against me as he begins to drink. That soft baby curled up around me, us bonding in such a special way. The milk drunk face with pouty lips and an expression of pure relaxed bliss. I cherish those memories of breastfeeding my son.

Breastfeeding is a topic that is near to my heart, even if I am no longer nursing. I shared our journey on multiple occasions, sharing the good with the bad, the struggles with our joys.

Breastfeeding Moms Share their Tips - National Breastfeeding Month

Between World Breastfeeding Week and National Breastfeeding Month, this month is full of fantastic information and support for mothers and babies. I wanted to stay involved with the breastfeeding community and do a roundup of some wonderful blogger moms sharing their experiences and advice.

Breastfeeding and Working Mom Tips

Last year’s World Breastfeeding Week topic aligned with what I was experiencing – breastfeeding and work. I shared some of my tips and links to great resources about a working breastfeeding mom’s rights.

Working moms who breastfeed get very well acquainted with their breast pump. I shared a tip on how to order your breast pump through your insurance.

I also shared tips on how to pack your pumping bag for work and some other tips and shortcuts for pumping moms.

  1. Thanks for sharing these! It’s been 2 years since I nursed my son and I still miss that special connection we had. It made me feel so useful to be able to feed him. I feel blessed every day that we had that time.

  2. I always wanted to breastfeed and although I faced a massive struggle, I was able to and treasure the memories. I am in awe of American mothers who have to return to work so early and manage to continue breastfeeding and providing breastmilk for their children. You must have to be so organised and disciplined. Anyone who manages even a short time like that deserves a medal.
    Thank you for joining the #weekendblogshare. I’m so sorry that it’s taken me so long to read and comment! Hannah

  3. Great roundup of links Julie. I just ordered a breastpump through insurance (for the first time, though this is my third time nursing!) and I can’t believe how easy it was. Wish it was that way for my first.
