That is a beautiful photo! She makes it look so easy, and peaceful!

(I guess I've already forgotten what it was like to nurse babies who would just lie there and nurse, instead of insist on practicing their downward-dog, and leg-lifts while nursing).

I had to tandem nurse on the bench outside of Whole Foods today, and someone asked me if I was part of a campaign to promote breastfeeding. I said, "no, I'm just a mama feeding two hungry babies." But, I am conscious of the fact that I'm always promoting breastfeeding when I nurse in public--especially when I nurse two babies at once!

Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.

That is a beautiful picture. It makes me wish I had taken one like that when my girls were small. I do have pictures of me nursing them but none that "posed".

Lex...Good for you nursing them both outside of the store!! I have nursed them both in public but only a time or two tandem.

Oh it brings back memories of when they were small and could do that.

Now they mug each other to nurse first.

Thanks DaryLLL!!!!!

What a beautiful picture! (And beautiful woman, too... LOL, I wish I looked like THAT when I nursed!)

I had almost forgotten about the double-football, pillow-propping, blissful nursing days!!
