Breastfeeding, lazy river style!!! We decided to take the family to @greatwolflodge in Sandusky, an indoor water park near our home. As all the kids gathered on the other tubes, the twins saw me and my boobies in my swimsuit, and wanted nothing else, LOL. . I figured, what the heck, relaxing on a tube in a lazy river seems like an amazing comfy place. Why not?! So the lifeguard constantly walks back and forth along side. Loudly, as I passed him with both babies fully latched on, he exclaimed, “What the hells that lady doing over there?!” The question was within ear shot of my husband and he turned to him and said, “Obviously she’s breastfeeding dude.” The lifeguard shook his head and I laughed and proceeded on with life with a little giggle. . That was not at all an easy one for me with my whole “normalizing” goals. There were kids of all ages and parents riding past me left and right. I couldn’t fully relax because I was praying no one would say something snarky or mean and ruin our moment. Luckily, the *only* thing said was the question of shock from the lifeguard which I found humorous, not offensive. . Honestly it is shocking to some people because they just don’t see it. Well, that weekend, trust me...a lot more people in this world saw how truly normal it is to breastfeed (even two babies, older babies at that) in public. . It was great and the babies LOVED nursing on a lazy river - probably their first and only time ever in their lives! 🥰 . Swipe left to see more of the family and some cool interior spaces at the lodge! . Copeland loved floating the girls around in the warm tub. All my girls loved spending time with dad in the warm tub too! . I went on every slide and we think this is going to be an annual tradition for us now. Only next year we need to do two nights instead of one!

GREAT NEWS! Another one of my Portraits of Motherhood was accepted into a local gallery juried art exhibit! Please read the artist statement for this piece: . For years, Ohio has had one of the highest infant mortality rates in the country. Infant mortality is defined as a baby born alive who dies in their first year of life. . According to America's Health Ranking website, the national average of infant mortality (death within the first year) is 5.9 and Ohio is well above that at over 7 (deaths per 1,000). For both maternal and infant mortality, lack of breastfeeding and related support was ranked as the second most negatively impactful cause of infant and maternal related deaths. (Tobacco use during and postnatal ranked highest.) Unfortunately, Summit County seems to be at the epicenter of much of the mortality rankings in Ohio. So much so, that in 2018 Mayor Horrigan created an initiative, Full Term First Birthday, as a specific response. . There is no question that breastfeeding helps not only babies, but mothers also. Shockingly, only 16.7% of infants were breastfed exclusively through the first six months, compared to almost double that in the state with the lowest infant mortality rate. Why is this? Why are breastfeeding rates so low in Ohio and Summit County? . Since becoming a mother, I have become passionate about breastfeeding, most especially when I became a twin mother who had the outlandish goal of exclusively breastfeeding them through their first birthday. I knew it was possible, but I had never seen it done before. Breastfeeding to many women and families still leave a negative stigma because it is seen as “indecent” and “unnecessary exposure” or “inappropriate”. It is mentalities like these that create a culture where women do not want to even try to breastfeed. . My Portraits of Motherhood depict my candid, raw experiences in my breastfeeding journey, specifically the tandem twins. My goal is by sharing these beautiful portraits, it will help our area become destigmatized and give other women and future moms the courage and desire to breastfeed their children with the eventual decline in both infant and maternal mortality rates.

EXHIBITIONIST - because I just want to show of my “naked” body & “private” parts. RESPONSE - A breast feeding her child is no longer considered a “private” part. There is never a sex act taking place. Honestly, with that concept, a mouth is much more VULGAR than a breast. Think about alllll the things you can put in your mouth and put your mouth into during a sex act...and do we have to cover up our mouths? No. A mouth is WAY more offensive and often hurtful than a beautiful breast feeding it’s child. . ATTENTION SEEKER - She’s just doing it for attention! RESPONSE - Yes, I am sharing my images for attention. There I said it. No, seriously, I am! I do it for attention! I want the attention of other mamas so they can read my stories and see my portraits and hopefully find courage, comfort, inspiration, and empowerment in their own lives. I love it when I read comments and get DMs about women being out in public and thinking about a post of mine and found the inner strength to feed their child right there on the spot. If I’ve in any way positively affected you in your personal journey, please share in the comments below. ⬇️ . People.com wrote an article about me and the daycare that was published this morning at 11:30. It has since been the top trending article on many major news sources (including Apple News) all day. ☺️ . I could not imagine a more successful way to spread awareness and continue the cause of normalization! It’s making world headlines! But along with the attention comes A LOT of trolls. That’s okay, it fuels my fire that there’s still lots of work that needs to be done. . Go to my stories for direct swipe up links to some of the articles! . In the pictures I am at @greatwolflodge once again feeding my twins after they were extremely fussy and tired because we swam all day. They just wanted their mommy. I was happy to oblige. Also pictured are Piper, Parker, and Copeland all sleeping. I couldn’t help but snap a shot because they were so cute! And also the whole entire gang! . 👑 Keep Calm and Nurse On 👑 my loves 💞

Starting of the New Year with a great accomplishment! . We always talk about how important breastfeeding is for the health of our babies, but it’s just as important that we acknowledge all the benefits to mothers as well. . • We recover from childbirth more quickly and easily because the release of oxytocin acts to help the uterus return to its regular size and also reduces PP bleeding. • Reduces rates of getting breast or ovarian cancer later in life. • May reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. • Creates a unique very powerful physical and emotional connection for us and our babies, making bonding much quicker, easier, and stronger. • It’s saves us a ton of money! Kellymom.com says the cost of exclusively formula fed SINGLETON is up to $3,163 (depending on brand). Breastfeeding my children just through their first birthday has saved me up to $12,652, just since Apr of 2014. . Cheers to an amazing new year of breastfeeding mamas! 🥂 . (Swipe left to see how excited Asher was of our accomplishment! 🤣) . . . . #breastfeedingmommy #pregnantmum #normalizebreastfeedinginpublic #lovebeingamom #postpartumrecovery #pregnancylife #newmum #wahm #maternitystyle #doulalife #babyiscoming #midwifery #crunchymom #babyledweaning #birthdoula #breastpump #worldbreastfeedingweek #breastfeedingisbeautiful #inspirepregnancy #breastfeedingjourney #pregnantlife #postpartumbelly #breastfeedingmum #motherssupportingmothers #liquidgold #breastfedbaby #bumpie #lactation #mommyhood #badassbreastfeeder

ATTENTION WHORE • NARCISSIST • DISRESPECTFUL • SELFISH • DISGUSTING • BELLIGERENT • IMMODEST • FAT COW • AN EMBARRASSMENT • PERVERT . And the list goes on. . I said “Come at me”...and they did. That’s totally okay. I want people to see what we, breastfeeding mamas, have to endure just because we choose to do so in public. . I was told I was being “disrespectful of others” because I needed to nurse my babies at that time. In contrast, I thought I was being extremely respectful to those around me because who wants to hear a couple of crying babies? . Selfish and narcissistic? Breastfeeding my children has been quite literally the most selfless act of love I have ever done, or could even imagine. (Maybe giving a kidney could be more selfless 🤔) . The use of certain hashtags was also questioned, #badassbreastfeeder. Here’s my thought: all moms are badass as long as they’re taking care of their shit. Breastfeeding moms are additionally because we take on the task of feeds all our own. That is a major commitment. That does not make non-breastfeeding moms any less badass to me. Twin/multiples bf’ing moms even more so because it’s all the more of a time commitment. . What sets me apart from the rest is that I choose to document and share my journey on here which inevitably opens the door to ridicule. Luckily I have a tough skin. . What is NOT badass are women (or men but sadly it’s usually women) who choose to spread negativity in the form of judging, name calling, and general hate tactics on other mothers, but specifically the most innocent of activities: a breastfeeding mother. . These nasty people will continue to spread hate as long as we cover up, hide in the bedroom, find the “nursing room”, and stay home they will win. . Get out there and do it. Whenever and wherever your babe needs you. That baby is WAY more important! . #normalizebreastfeeding #normalisebreastfeeding #thirdtrimester #naturalbirth #pregnantwithtwins #pumpingmama #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedwithoutfear #40weekspregnant #39weekspregnant #38weekspregnant #twinmom #twinmomlife #groceryshopping #groceryhaul #thirdtrimester #doulalife #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedinglife

I WANT YOU TO STARE I don’t know why your looks make me want to look away. I don’t know why your whispers makes me want to cover up. I don’t know why your words and comments make me feel like I should be feeding in a bathroom. I don’t know why something so precious could incite your disgust. I don’t know why your expressions of disapproval make me feel like I should not get to enjoy my experiences with my children in the same place as everyone else. So often we assume looks, words, expressions, whispers, comments, etc are negative. If we can somehow retrain our brain that when people look our direction while breastfeeding in public, it is instead looks of admiration and support. How would that affect our journeys? How would that affect our motherhood? If I could go back in time and give my first time nursling self the confidence I have now, it would have changed me. I would never have missed a family dinner or conversation because I excused myself to a private bedroom. It would have allowed me to enjoy my dinners out at restaurants without turning red and starting to sweat at the thought of having to breastfeed while there. It will never become normalized if we hide or cover up. Desensitize by letting people see you. . #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedinglife #twinbreastfeeding #tandemnursing #twinmomlife #twinmom #twinmama #twinnies #twinning #yesthebump
