World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year August 1-7. The goal is to encourage and improve the health of babies around the world. Feelings about and relationships with breastfeeding vary. Every mom has a unique experience with (or without) it. Regardless, it is definitely a topic that deserves more attention and awareness.
In honor of World Breastfeeding week, we’ve pulled together a few of our favorite illustrations that highlight the joy and struggles of being a breastfeeding mom.
The day-to-day realities of being a breastfeeding mama.
There’s a position for every mood.
A reminder that the mom tribe is always there.

The bonding moments that make it all worth it.
