Extreme Nursing Photo Gallery 2011

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

Extreme Multitasking

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.

No Excuses
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!

 Unlateral Cleft Nursing
Burlington, VT
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
Waterboro, ME
This is my 2.5-year-old daughter Violet nursing her babies all at once.

Underwater Nursing

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!

First Time
Yume, AZ
New Year's Eve 2009.  It was the best New Year's Eve I ever had!

First Meal
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!

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.
