Unfortunately, when I first returned to breastfeeding my daughter (rather than exclusively pumping), I had some negative reactions after I posted breastfeeding and proud photos on my social media. What was even more shocking was that these came from family!
I just couldn't believe it. These are the people that we expect to support us the most. Well, this made me even more determined because I was doing something I felt strongly about. I had my own realizations about why I'd stopped breastfeeding with my son and, for several months, with my daughter shortly before this happened. I wasn't going to be shamed or bullied into hiding in a corner (or a nasty bathroom) somewhere.
I still post breastfeeding photos, and I think it's important for other moms to know that you are not alone. Feel free to read my entire post at A Fulfilled Mommy, where I talk more in depth on the topic.
Have you ever had negative reactions or feedback to your breastfeeding or know someone who has?
