When I was pregnant with Beren I was adamant that I would only breastfeed (under sufferance) for six weeks at the most!
That didn't quite pan out as planned as he ended up self weaning at 18 months when I was pregnant with his sister.
She self weaned at just over two years.
Breast feeding my children was one of the things only I could do, I was giving sustenance and health to my children and when I was feeling at my very lowest due to severe depression and anxiety it was one thing I could do without effort. The first few weeks were difficult but I was extremely lucky that I had help and support and made it through the tough times to enjoy a successful breastfeeding journey.
In honour of that wonderful gift we women possess I am having a give away!
I found a spare copy of the beautiful book by artist Chrissy Butler called
The Wonderful Place
This book has the most gorgeous illustrations depicting the wonderful place that is in the arms of a babie's mama whilst breast feeding.
Chrissy has self published this book and her first book, My Brother Jimi Jazz (a home birth journey through the eyes of a big sister). This book is also printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper.
