At Guangming Hospital in Shenzhen, China a 1-month-old baby boy was undergoing surgery to remove an abscess; a surgery that required only a local anesthetic, leaving the baby awake. The little boy was so panicked that he would not calm enough for the surgery to begin. The surgical team was about to cancel the surgery until one nurse stepped in.
Nurse Li Baoxia, who had just become a mother herself, was just finishing up a surgery in another room when … Keep Reading!!!

This is exactly the scenario that Abby, also known as The Badass Breastfeeder, envisioned and brought to life.
Abby was inspired by all the beautiful group breastfeeding photos which have been circulating recently, and decided to set one up for local … Keep Reading!!!
A new photo series from the Pediatric Society of Rio Grande (SPRS) is stirring up controversy and for good reason. What they claim is an attempt to encourage new moms to eat healthy actually comes off as shaming and guilting and encouraging moms to stop breastfeeding if they aren’t eating perfectly.
On the organization’s website they defend their campaign by speaking of the importance to educate and inform mothers about “procedures necessary for proper nutrition”. The whole campaign could be … Keep Reading!!!
I am a student who focuses on child development and parenting in an evolutionary context, so when I decided to become a nanny, I specifically sought out a family that practices evidence-based, “attachment”-style parenting. Since I am not a parent yet myself (suitable bachelors inquire within), I’ve heretofore only “practiced” attachment parenting principles in a peripheral sort of way (wearing my friends babies, etc). I am therefore super excited to finally have the chance to test the scientific … Keep Reading!!!
Standing in front of the mirror, right after a shower, seeing your every imperfection staring back at you from the fog covered glass. We’ve all done this. Just stood there wishing we could change this and that. Our bodies do so much for us and demonstrate immeasurable strength. Yet we spend so much time thinking about how we can look better, rather than celebrating who we are. While there are often outside pressures from media and other women, we tend … Keep Reading!!!

The story sounds strange but is much more beautiful than weird. This is Reina. Reina, whose name is Spanish for “Queen”, is a hero this week. On Thursday, authorities in Arica, Chile found Reina breastfeeding a missing 2-year-old child inside the mechanic’s workshop where she lived. Not only did Reina wet-nurse a child of a different species but she did it while pregnant! The Arica authorities believe Reina saved the boy’s life, who they found almost naked beside her. He … Keep Reading!!!
Happy Birthday to Alyssa Milano’s daughter, Elizabella. Alyssa celebrated by sharing a photo of the first day of their breastfeeding relationship.
Such a beautiful moment of bonding and nourishment. Alyssa picked the perfect words to celebrate, “Thank you for choosing me.”
This isn’t her first time sharing her “brelfies” either. She’s always shared nursing as a part of her life.

Whitney Walters wanted to put together a scrapbook of her 6-year-old daughter. She sent her pictures off to Walmart, but when she arrived to pick them up they told her multiple photos of hers were indecent and would not be printed. The indecent act? Breastfeeding her daughter.

Tamara Ecclestone, who is famous for something to do with cars, and not even the pretty ones, the Formula One cars. To me she’s famous for being a vocal supporter of public nursing, posting her own images to Instagram and stating that she will never be ashamed of nursing her 17-month-old.
This month she’s looking Fabulous, showing the normalcy of not just public breastfeeding but term nursing too!
She’s very down to earth about what she does as well, she … Keep Reading!!!
