Breastfeeding a baby is not just about the milk and this is even more true for older babies and toddlers. Breast milk and the contact with their mummies brings a lot of comfort to babies and children and it is a great help for mummies too! Many mothers I know says they wouldn’t know how to parent without it :)
Tired? Boob! Hurt? Boob! Scared? Boob! Sick? Boob! Does this sound familiar?
Poor little Lois just got high temperature right before I came in for the session. We still went ahead and captured the relationship between Melanie and her last baby breastfeeding and babywearing. It just shows the power of breastfeeding when you look at Lois little face at the start and at the end of the session.
She nursed, fell asleep and woke up feeling a lot better!
This is the very same room Lois was born into the world.
Breastfeeding and babywearing photo sessions in Dublin
I love that Melanie bought the photo album as a gift from herself to herself.
