Wordless Wednesday: What a breastfeeding 3 year-old REALLY looks like!!

In case you hadn't heard, World Breastfeeding Week starts today!  One of the goals of World Breastfeeding Week this year is to "plan what more can be done to support all women to be able to optimally feed and care for of their infants and young children." 

I believe one of the most important things that can be done to support women to be able to successfully breastfeed is to let people see it!  The world got an eye-full, with the notorious TIME cover story a couple of months ago, but I wanted to share what nursing a 3 year old looks like in our house...

I had hoped to have more photos for today's Wordless Wednesday post, but there was a bit of a mix up regarding the images I ordered and we've been total slackers in the photo-taking department over the past 5 months or so (we moved cross country twice in a 4 mo. period!), so this "Wordless" Wednesday post has more words than images :)  I hope to have some new tandem nursing photos to share next week though!

Don't gigi teeth hurt sometimes

It only hurts if she doesn't latch properly. As long as she opens wide and really BREASTfeeds (rather than nipple-feeds) I don't feel her teeth :)
