Happy World Breastfeeding Week! In celebration of the week, lets meet up. If you are in the Fair Haven area and want to chat with some other beautiful mamas, lets meet. 5:30 p.m. at the park and talk all things breastfeeding. Bring the kids and a snack! It would be wonderful to see specifically people of the global majority, but all are welcome! Can we talk about race, breastfeeding, and mothering....of course we can!

Because weaning is hard & this picture makes me feel good about my decision. 18 months and mama is ready. Thanks to πŸ“· @rachelliuphoto for capturing one of our last unapologetic nursing sessions at the Yale Art Gallery. I will miss these moments. #blackbreastfeedingmatters #bebravebreastfeed #blackwomenbreastfeed #bhm #weaning #blackmama #tribedemama # #yaleartgallery #nhv #locs #natural #locnation

#treeoflife. I am sorry I have been neglecting what is important to me. #bebravebreastfeed is back and I'm not going to stop! We are life and we sustain life, what a blessing and honor.

We made it to ONE! I could literally cry right now. I was determined to breastfeed for the first year and we did it! We are proving the doubters wrong. We are breastfeeding our children against all odds. Through black trauma and turmoil, we got this! We got us! #blackbreastfeedingweek #blackmomsbreastfeed #wemadeittoone

Today is special. Last year, today was the first day of #blackbreastfeedingweek and the day I met my son earthside. It was magical . What a privilege to be a mama!

In prepping for Black Breastfeeding Week 2016 @bebravebreastfeed will be hosting a conversation on race, breastfeeding, and the historical links of nurturing. All are welcome! Bring a snack to share and let's have a dialogue about breastfeeding in our community! If you love a black breastfeeding mama, support them. Hear them. Love them. Please share and spread the word. #nhv #nhvbreastfeeders #BBW2016 #breastfriends #tribedemama #blaktivist #blacklivesmatter #blackmomsbreastfeed #BBWCT
