Even if you’re like me, and you’ve never watched the shows Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, or Keeping up with the Kardashians, you probably have heard the names Kourtney, Khloe and Kim tossed around. And maybe you’ve heard a bit Kourtney’s views on breastfeeding. You can read her post about it here, on the Celebrity Baby Blog on People Magazine. Or you can visit her own site. Here’s an excerpt:
Each mother has her own personal view about breast feeding. Some choose not to do at all, while others, like myself, are all about it. For me it just felt like the right thing to do, and has been the most amazing bonding experience.
Mason is now six months old and has only been fed breast milk up until this week! I just started incorporating solid foods into his diet. We began with a mixture of rice cereal, oatmeal cereal and mixed grain cereal with some breast milk added. When I introduced it to him, he seemed confused — but ready and excited for it!
I still want to continue breastfeeding for maybe another six months or as long as Mason still wants it. I’ve heard that some babies just get over it and stop nursing. But personally, I’m still loving it. I love the bonding time, love that it’s natural and what your body is made to do, love the benefits for his body and mine. I find it to be such an amazing womanly thing.
