Breastfeeding Triplets

“It’s been almost 8 months.  It’s hard, it’s a commitment, it’s a sacrifice. I’ve been frustrated, I’ve wanted to give up. I’ve been told I can’t do it. I’ve been asked why I don’t just give bottles.  But I’ve gained more than I’ve given.  I’ve gained one on one time I wouldn’t have otherwise gotten. I’ve given them the best I could. I’ve learned how strong I am.  I debated sharing this photo, but this is my life. This isn’t vulgar, this isn’t sexualized. This is hard work, dedication.  Lets normalize breastfeeding!

A huge thank you to Babymonster Photography for capturing this for me.”
