What a wonderful thread
I wish I had photos to share. I have been feeding for 20m and don't have *any* pics of DS feeding. DH won't take one (he doesn't understand why I would like to have one) and when I try to take pictures myself, DS pops off and tries to grab the camera
My little boy is the same
if he even knows the camera is around he tries to grab it! I have to wait till he's sleeping

I hope this works:
Me feeding DD2 and DD1 feeding her 'baby'.
This one shows how DD2 could never sit still, even for a breastfeed.

Here are 5 of my many many favourites... Well all of my BF pics are my faves.
1: DD2 & DD3 tandem nursing - DD3 was only 2 days old here. I love how Mila is patting Remi's head here
2: DD2 & DD3 tandem nursing again (DD3 only 15 days old).
3: On fathers day, both girls asleep on me
4: I was breastfeeding both girls, when DD3 came off the breast. DD2 decided she would help her latch back on again, lol. Loving how she delicately grabs my boob and tries to force her sister onto it.
5: DD3 at 11wks smiling while feeding, love those cheeky & cute moments.

Pippety Pip that last cheeky grin one made my ovaries ache... I so miss those little looks!

It not the cutest one but it is my absolute favourite one over 3 kids.
For the 3 days up until this point he was very tense and agitated. As soon as he was able to have this first feed, it made all the hurt go away and he was peaceful.

I['ve BF my daughter for over 2 years and I don't think I ever got a photo
And now she's 2.5 she doesn't like her photo taken so I doubt I'll get one. Oh well, looking at others is ALMOST as good.
Posted 16 November 2012 - 10:11 PM
I don't have any photos - we were never able to establish breastfeeding, and I had other complications.
The photos you have all put up are just beautiful - it reminds me my favourite is DD and I having skin on skin contact early on and I am smiling (before descending into PND).
just a beautiful celebration of life and love.

I can find any photos on this laptop of DS feeding but I fed him for 25 months
DD is now 19 months and still feeding here is one of my favourites her at 5 months
edit here's another one of her feeding a few weeks ago at a halloween party

Oh my goodness! I love this thread! The most
looks on the bubby's faces
I took some pics of my little precious feeding on my mobile (but can't upload to my PC to share
) because I was so in love with how peaceful she looked. It melts my heart.

Feeding DS at around 3 months
I really need to take more photos of him feeding before he stops completely!
Posted 20 January 2013 - 10:11 PM
Wish I'd found this thread ages ago... so many beautiful images!
Here's mine... feeding my five-month-old in the shower:
ETA: this is a good example of the fact that small boobies make milk too!
