The Beauty of Breastfeeding


Did you receive your January/ February issue of Mothering? I did and I can’t help but feel immensely encouraged and happy about life. Although I’m a little partial, I have always loved the sense of community and mothering love Mothering magazine exudes. It’s such a treat for all of us.

It’s been awhile since I blogged last. I often do a disappearing act when life gets in the way. I’ve been thinking of ways to create some sort of community with all of you, my dear readers. Getting constant feedback from you helps me keep going as it takes immense time and dedication to hunt down historic breastfeeding photos. I also often think about how all of this work could easily translate into a Ph.D. Maybe one day. But I am always encouraged by communication with readers.

What do you think? How do you think we can all stay more connected? You with me and me with you? I’d love to create a blogroll of readers’ blogs so I can visit and read about what’s going on in your life. If you have a blog and read here regularly, please leave a comment with your URL.

Think about it. I’d love to create some type of community with those of you who read regularly. It will help me keep digging for photos and it will also help me meet more of you, not just in the comments.

I found this photo recently and think it’s one of the most beautiful photographs I’ve seen in the two years since I’ve been discovering these black and white photos online.

Here is a French women nursing her baby in Rouen in April 1946. The father of the baby was an American GI.
