I am a mother and I breastfed. This is one of my advocacy in life, to breastfeed my children.
When I gave birth to my first-born 5 years ago, I made the right choice when I breastfed him. I save a lot of money from not buying formula milks, and I saved our relationship. I am not saying that you will not have a good relationship with your children just because you didn’t breastfed them, I am just saying that breastfeeding your children will help nourish your relationship as a mother and child and it brings your child more closer to you. My son is now 5 years old and I am proud to say that I breastfed him for 2 years and 2 months alone. He met milks for toddlers after that period.
Five years ago, I was not into blogging, not into internet surfing, and so I didn’t know about Baby Bond Couture. When I breastfed in public, I cover my child and my breast from other people’s eyes by using diaper cloths. Or I run into our car and breastfed him there.
I just gave birth two months ago to my second child and thanks God I discover this new innovation to help mothers who are into breastfeeding cover their breast but not their child from the public eyes. A blogger friend of mine, Mommy Dharlz of Empowered Mom gave me this:
I am really thankful because now that I have this nursing sash/belly bond, I can keep my breast from the public eye while breastfeeding in public areas at the same time kept my eye contact with my baby because I don’t need to cover my baby’s face with a diaper cloth anymore.
