Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week

"This picture was taken just an hour after my C-Section and while it's a horrible picture of me [side note from Christine: um - WHATEVER!! You look beautiful!] ...I think it would be lovely for people to know you can latch pretty soon after surgery if you have to use that option. Even though I couldn't really sit up the nurses helped me get a great start in our breastfeeding future just as soon as I asked if I could. A loved being skin to skin from that moment on. (Taken 4-22-2010)"

I had a c-section too, so I can relate to trying to bf after surgery. This mama is doing such a wonderful thing... so beautiful!

Wow Allie! You had major surgery, came straight out, breastfed, AND let someone capture it on film! Know what I call that? BEAUTIFUL! Congratulations Mama!

A small part of me wants to blush because by boob is now on the internet but honestly... life is beautiful if you forget to think about what your looking at long enough to enjoy how natural and wonderful it is.
