I am passionate about breastfeeding. My husband once asked my why I had such strong feelings about this topic and I couldn't quite find the words to explain it. Sometimes, when I'm nursing my daughter and she's looking particularly sweet and content, I will call my husband over to look at her so he can see and feel a little piece of what I experience each time I nurse. I'm not sure I'll ever find the exact words to describe these moments. What I do know is that there are many aspects of breastfeeding that are challenging. Some of the biggest challenges come in the very beginning but these continue throughout, all the way up until the baby is fully weaned. The reason I care so much about this topic might just be because I know how challenging it can be and I believe that with more information, education and support more women can meet their breastfeeding goals.
