We all have unique breastfeeding journeys. Some of us find it easy right from the start, but some of us need a little -- or a lot of -- help. There are incredibly helpful lactation consultants, support groups, YouTube tutorials, books, nipples balms, nursing pillows -- the list goes on.
We often turn outward for help, but turning inward can also provide great comfort and encouragement. We all have the ability to change the messages we’re sending ourselves. Working to improve our outlook -- an act of bravery in and of itself -- can profoundly impact our lives, and it’s a critical skill to model for our babies.
Affirmations are a great way to infuse positive self-talk into our breastfeeding journeys. Below are 15 of our favorite breastfeeding affirmations. Whisper them, shout them, sing them to your baby, dance to them, repeat them over and over in your head -- every little bit of positivity helps. Download these affirmations, share them, print your favorites, or bookmark this page for when you need a few reminders of your power.
