A Mommy and her Little Guy (Montclair Baby Photographer)

Every once in a while I offer a special day of “Mommy and Me” mini sessions. I love capturing the mother/baby bond. When I posted a picture on Facebook from this session, this is what I wrote…

I was so happy this little boy wanted to nurse while his mom was carrying him in their sling during their Mommy and Me photo shoot. I know his mama has already been, and will continue to be an inspiration to many. Her baby was born at 30 weeks and spent six weeks in the NICU. She pumped for him and wasn’t able to breastfeed for the first four months. At four months, she realized he was tongue tied and took him for an evaluation, and it took two more months to retrain his latch and teach him how to nurse. At seven months old, they were able to stop pumping and bottles and finally nurse full time. She told me, “I am so grateful I never gave up despite how hard it was!”
