Thank you, Karolina. Baby Noah Drury has been nursing for 14 weeks and mama and baby are going strong. Great job!

I love her words of support -- it seems she had some struggles with breastfeeding like so many of us do. But she writes, "It's not an easy process, but I encourage you to not give up! It was challenging for me at the start, but I am loving every step of this journey."

She should be really proud of herself. We may have to overcome a lot to hit a stride with breastfeeding. Moms sometimes face low milk supply, a baby's trouble with latch, finding a position that is comfortable, and mastitis. But as many of us moms who have been through those issues and others know, there is hope, and overcoming those issues will make us stronger, even though we are already so very strong. 

It is a beautiful commitment to breastfeed our babies, and it should be celebrated, which is why Kurkova went ahead and not only put her own image of her breastfeeding her son, but wants moms to do the same. She added #breastfeedingselfie and then encouraged mamas to tag others so more moms can celebrate their accomplishment. This is most certainly a hashtag we can get behind.
