The Breastfeeding Experience

Stories shared by readers that were affected one way or the other by witnessing a mother breastfeeding her child.

Experience #1

dear friend recently told me a very special story. In my opinion, it is an example of the purest form of love. My friend is a gentle, loving husband, father and grandfather that is in his fifties, and is associated with a clothing optional family resort in California. He was sitting in the shaded lawn area that was near a swimming pool, when he noticed a young mother breastfeeding an infant on a blanket that was spread on the lawn. The bond between the mother and the infant was very evident to him. Neither the mother nor the infant were encumbered by fabrics, and the devotion and keen attention that they were showing for each other was very clear. My friend could not help but reflect upon his memories of his own dear children and grandchildren. He said that it was such a serene and beautiful image that he could not imagine anything more pure and natural. Then, a second child, a girl about five years old, came from the pool and stood close, placing her arm around her mother and sibling. My friend could not hold back the emotions, as tears of joy flowed from his soul, expressing an emotional experience only a few of us are allowed during our lifetime. No purer image of humanity could exist.
