We recently had the honor of working with 9 local women in addition to myself to capture different variations and durations of breastfeeding. There are many issues that we have had the mission of addressing via this project and many more that have come up along the way. The normalization of breastfeeding is something that still has a long way to come. And amongst those who accept it we often find that they do so with conditions. You've heard the statements before- "I'm supportive of breastfeeding but...", "I think Breastfeeding is great if...." And we find all too often that even amongst breastfeeding moms - those who pump exclusively, supplement with formula, or use donor milk don't feel that they count or assume they're "not really" breastfeeding. The United States rates and durations of breastfeeding are so much lower than the rest of the entire world. We hope to see all of this change. We hope that someday none of this matters. That women are able to feed their babies whenever and wherever they may be without shame or stigma. That women can nurse their babies for 3 months or 3 years (or whatever number fits!) with support. That whether you nurse directly, partially, pump exclusively, use donor milk, supplement with formula, use bottles or supplemental nursing systems you can be proud and know with certainty you're doing the very best you can for you and yours. We are so happy to celebrate the fact that all variations and durations of breastfeeding are beautiful!
