This week is the World Breastfeeding Week! To celebrate and kick things off properly we’re bringing you a photo-heavy piece featuring queer moms breastfeeding their babies.
When I learned about WBW I was thrilled to feature content here on Lesbian Mommies. The World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) WBW logo is actually very LGBTQ inclusive and is described as, “two adults”. However, when I went to the US site that was promoting WBC and ALL the promotional material was hetero, single-race families… So I put the call out on the Lesbian Mommies facebook group received so many beautiful pictures. Below are 12 AMAZING pictures of badass lesbian mommies nursing their kiddos.
If you are queer and have a breastfeeding picture you would like us to feature please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Machelle W – Us :)
DeAnna C-E – Nursing both my boys
Annie B. C. – Here is me breastfeeding our 13 months old son (left), and my girlfriend breastfeeding our 8 days old son (right). I carried our older and she carried our younger.
SO MUCH LOVE :)
LesbianMommies.com founder Tara (left) and Jillian (right) with son Augustus
Sarena M – Heres one from the other day! We are just a few days shy of 13 months!
Sarah G – Going 6 months strong.
Rose E – 2 plus years and no sign of letting up
Lauren G. O. – Nursed my girl for almost 3 years until pregnancy number two tanked my supply. Her little bro has upper lip tie and we had major latch issues but I pumped for him until I ran out of milk again. Some of my sweetest memories are of nursing them. My wife isn’t in the pics bc she was always taking them , I never thought to pose with her and have someone else take one.
Lauren E – 8 months strong! Favorite part of my day
Shantel S – 12 months still going. Don’t think i have a pic of us together while breastfeeding
Kristen R – Love it!! Here’s one of mine just before we weaned at 19 months
