No one gets to decide these things.

My child doesn’t need anyone’s permission to breastfeed.

I don’t need anyone’s permission to give him my breast milk.

And to give him all of it. Which is not

too much.

Or for

too long.

So what am I then?

I AM already breastfeeding.

And I am not the one who needs to stop all of this.
