Things Breastfeeding Taught Me

I wanted to share things breastfeeding has taught me. This isn’t technical breastfeeding stuff, but abstract concepts of things I’ve reflected on after the end of my breastfeeding journey.
Breastfeeding has taught me the concept of having faith.

 There is no way to determine the amount of milk you have in your breast… no way

Even if you pump, that still isn’t an indicator of all the milk you have available. You are basically living on a hope and a prayer that you have enough milk for your baby.

Breastfeeding will teach you to have the utmost faith. Not only in faith in yourself, but faith in God. He crafted us so uniquely. Somehow, we can nourish and sustain life for as long as we need to with our OWN bodies! Come on now!

This is what our bodies were meant to do. Keep the faith!

 

Breastfeeding taught me to have confidence.

Not only has breastfeeding taught me about faith, but also about confidence. The confidence that I can provide and supply my baby’s needs.

Breastfeeding has been a confidence booster for me.  Seeing what my body is capable of and reaping the benefits of having a smart is health child is awesome. It lets me know that I have done something right on this journey of motherhood.

Once you realize what your body is capable of, there is no limit to what you can do!

 

Breastfeeding taught me self-love.

I can appreciate and love my body so much more. My body has gone through so many changes to make room for not one, but two lives to pass through. I’ve seen its resilience and it is beautiful.

How can I not love the home my happiness was birth from?

Women’s bodies are so amazing. We are truly a gift.

Breastfeeding showed me my truth.

Breastfeeding has shifted my perspective on how I feel about myself as a mother. While I was pregnant, I always contemplated if I was fit to be a mother. I foolishly listened to what others had to say about me.

I doubted myself. I doubted my abilities and everything that God told me was.

Now, I’m free of the stronghold I let people’s opinions have on me.  I’m a great mother.

No one can tell you your truth!

 

I’m happy I breastfed Luna for as long as I did. The obstacles I faced while breastfeeding, were there to help me realize I can overcome anything. There is nothing I can’t do.

 

I am woman, see me lactate!
