Comment on To The Mom Who Didn’t Breastfeed by Melissa.

Thank you for putting so eloquently a message that desperately needs to be heard. There is no one equation that equals a loving mother who is connected to her baby. We are stronger as women and as mothers when we build each other up instead of tearing each other down. I want to be the kind of mother whose connection comes not from how she fed her baby but how she connected to him, whose friendships formed not because of how she fed or birthed or transported her baby, but because of how she connected to other mothers and made them feel welcome in her presence. The kind of mother that when her kid says “I want to be just like mom” that adds up to a wonderful thing to be.

Thank you for being that kind of mother.
