World Breastfeeding Week

As my social media sites have been filling with beautiful images and stories celebrating the connection of breastfeeding mothers around the world, I am reminded of so many of my own funny feeding moments from when my three boys were little…

The boys and I were standing in line at our local market on a busy Friday evening, waiting to check out. I leaned around Luke, who was less than a year old at the time, to help the bigger boys empty the cart onto the convauyer belt. With about a dozen customers standing behind us in line, Luke took full advantage of the opportunity.  He pulled my breast right out of my v-neck t’shirt and tried to help himself to a snack!  It got a good laugh from everyone, except Luke who quickly reminded us that he was still hungry.

What funny breastfeeding moments do you have to share?

  1. Love it! I am still happily breastfeeding our youngest and last. Many, many a morning have I woken up with ‘hickies’ all over my breast where the little one really didn’t even care about the midnight snack, just wanted something to suck on!

  2. hysterical! although around here I can only imagine the hairy eyeballs I would have gotten! the story that stands out most in my memory happened when nursing my oldest in front of my grandmother. I think he was two years old or so. she said, “he’s never gonna quit that, you’re going to have to go to school with him!” I laughed and said “that’s why we’re homeschooling!” of course he didn’t nurse nearly that long, and weaned all on his own when he was ready, just past his 4th birthday 🙂
