    When People Say, "Just Use A Cover"

    I’ve often heard people say, “I don’t know why it’s such a big deal to use a cover when you breastfeed.” Well, here’s why!

    Not every Mother has the option of using a cover. My daughter obviously does not like to be covered while she eats. She likes to look at me and make eye contact. She also likes to look around and swing her arm around freely. And I LOVE to smile at her and talk to her and sing to her while I nurse her. This is our way of bonding. And these are some of my most treasured moments as a Mother.

    Sadly, there are a lot of women who feel afraid to nurse in public, and I can’t stand that!!! No Mother should ever feel afraid or shamed for feeding their hungry baby!

    So to those of you who don’t like seeing a Mother breastfeed, look away, move on, or better yet, learn to appreciate it and support that Mom because nursing is HARD, and it is one of the best things a Mother can do for her child. And not all of us can or want to use a cover!! I am in full support of Mothers breastfeeding their babies, anywhere, anytime and in any way they feel comfortable doing it!

    "Young" Mom

    So I guess I would be considered a “young mom” to most, I got pregnant at 20 years old after only knowing my child’s father for a short amount of time; and while she wasn’t planned I know that there was a plan for me and that’s why she is here.

    Emma is 10 months old now and these past 10 months have been some of the most difficult I’ve ever experienced, yes motherhood is hard but I believe I’ve had such a hard time because being so young everyone has wrote me off. While pregnant I got comments left and right on “are you sure you’re ready for this?”, “you’re so young maybe you should just take care of this and do it later”. I knew in my heart I was ready to be a mom, and then once she was born everything got so much worse.

    While nursing we were having issues left and right and I saw so many lactation consultants for them all to tell me “it’s just not working maybe you’re just not ready for it” so instead I did research and I figured it out myself.

    These past 10 months have been filled with rude comments, unsolicited parenting advice, bashing, and the list goes on and on. But they have also been filled with, belly laughs, baby snuggles, smiles, and so much joy. The comments don’t get to me as much as they used to, I’m at peace now knowing that I’m the best mom I could possibly be.
