Whether or not you agree with public breastfeeding, or posting images that promote the cause, I think it's great that moms feel comfortable enough to share their journeys.

The truth is, breastfeeding is hard -- and if it were that easy, more women would likely be up for the challenge. Sometimes there are issues latching; sometimes there are issues with milk supply; and sometimes, you're just too dang tired to keep up with it -- or don't have the chance to do so (hey, the struggle is real).

I breastfed my firstborn son until he was 11 months, and am currently nursing my 8-month-old boy. If it wasn't for the honestly of my mom friends, I don't know where I would be today.

Whether you make the choice to breastfeed or not, it's nice to hear about other ladies' stories that might help make your walk a little more manageable.

Thanks for sharing, Brittany!
