A few months ago I volunteered to be in a photography project to showcase the beauty and normalcy of breastfeeding. I met the photographer (Katrina Anderson) through a dear friend and was so thrilled to not only have the opportunity to have pictures taken of me nursing my baby girl, but also advocate for something I feel so strongly about. Some of the photos went up on At Mother's Breast today. If you are my brother or something you may not want to go to the site because there is a photo that shows some of my breast. Just so you know. I don't feel uncomfortable about that (what is more natural and beautiful than providing the best possible nourishment for my baby?), but I also don't have an agenda to shove that down peoples' throats who may not be comfortable with it. Katrina asked me to write up a little blurb about my feelings about breastfeeding so she could post it along with the pictures. I will include what I wrote here, too, just in case some of you don't feel inclined to click over to the site.
