Southampton-based photographer, Lillian Sediles (lilliansediles.com), took these gorgeous photos of a family’s breastfeeding journey.
Breastfeeding is difficult, though natural. It’s the best way to feed a baby. Kim makes it look so easy, though as a breastfeeding mum, I know it has its difficult times! In the early stages, I remember feeling like a cow or a milk-machine; that my sole purpose in life was to create milk to feed my baby. In the later stages, I wonder if I’ll ever be able to stop breastfeeding! Though in every stage, I always find moments of warmth, love, thankfulness, and closeness as I nurse my baby. I hope these photos are a reminder of how special breastfeeding is and also an encouragement to mums out there to keep at it!
Congratulations to all breastfeeding mums out there, these photos are in honour of you and in celebration of National Breastfeeding Week!
