Breastfeeding Tattoos

Essential Baby highlights a new trend for celebrating the breastfeeding relationship between mom and child – breastfeeding tattoos!  Author Evelyn Lewin explains:
Psychologist Sharon Draper, author of Stuck in the Mud, says the tattoos can be beneficial, as they can remind mums of the strength they found during breastfeeding.”They can [also] be a form of self-expression to show the world how proud they are of something they believe in,” she says.

Sharon says breastfeeding tattoos also send a positive message to others.

“For other mothers, seeing these mothers embrace breastfeeding in this way can provide a form of support to them, to let them know it’s a positive thing and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it.”
