My son at 3 1/2 nursing to sleep on a ferry back from Nantucket. I ended up nursing him to sleep until he was 5 1/2.
I loved every minute. Dagmar, Dagmar's momsense
Side-lying Tandem Twins
This photo was taken the night before thanksgiving this year. My then 2 1/2 month old was breastfeeding in the sling while I was Facebooking and peeling and cutting the cores out of apples for apple pie.

This is me and my 25 month old son Caleb.
San Diego, CA
In the middle of shooting photos for my blog post about working out with your baby my daughter got rather fussy. Killed two birds with one stone: took care of my girl's needs and worked out my core muscles!
Little Baby Big Breast
This photo was taken in the midst of dealing with oversupply...cute little position to help keep Frankie from drowning!
Tridem Nursing at its Finest
I have no idea how to explain she'd need three nipples to accomplish this.

Nothing too extreme here - just sharing nursing pics :)
They Come in All Sizes
Just minutes old and nursing on a breast twice her size!

Nursing in Governor Perry's office in the Texas Capitol during a Planned Parenthood Lobby Day. The sign said "No Eating or Drinking" but we're rule breakers :)

Unlateral Cleft Nursing
I am proud that I am able to breastfeed my son who has an unlateral cleft lip up until his recent surgery, and I had to train him to nurse all over again, when many mamas give up or don't try. It took me patience and determination. I think it's pretty extreme of me to face challenges of leaking milk from lips.
Nursing Babies All At Once
This is my 2.5-year-old daughter Violet nursing her babies all at once.

Tennessee Aquarium with my 15 month old nursing while we walk through the beautiful aquarium. Not terribly extreme, but I was proud of my capabilities! Paddlefish in the background.
Suck It Cancer!
UPMC Hamot Hospital, Erie, PA
I was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2010. I immediately had two brain surgeries in the following weeks. Working with the Lactation Consultants at the hospital, I was able to breastfeed my eighteen-month-old daughter through both surgeries and treatment. Nearly two now, we still have a healthy breastfeeding relationship!
Took a break during a little photo shoot.
Nursing in Snow
Here is a photo of my son nursing outdoors while his big brother plays in the snow.
Breastfeeding Yoga Mama
New Year's Eve 2009. It was the best New Year's Eve I ever had!
Johnson City, NY
This is a picture of my son having his first meal. I had just come from the recovery room after a cesarean and wasn't permitted to sit up. The nurses left us there with no instruction on how to nurse him, just that we could. So we got creative!
Sometimes Baby's Gotta Eat Even When Mama's Gotta Go!
(Thank Goodness for Slings!)
First Vacation to California
Taking a break from playing in the park in San Francisco to have a quick snack.
Apparently my breast is also a footrest.
Breastfeeding on the Operating Table
Winter Springs, FL
Here is a picture of me breastfeeding my fourth child during my c-section. I was still cut open on the operating table! They were in the process of stapling me back together. I demanded that I feed my daughter as soon as she took her first breath. They handed her to me and my husband within three minutes. It was amazing. Let your voice be heard - you do not have to wait to go into the recovery room to feed your newborn.
