    Yes!!! I’ve had a post about this brewing but haven’t actually written it down yet. It pisses me off that essentially the criticism means we should never take pride in a damn thing we achieve and that is just wrong xx

      Thank you!!! Exactly.

      I can understand that if you were unable to do something, then seeing lots of pictures of said task is going to sting, but why criticise or make it about your inability to do said task? Just let the folk that can do it be proud of their achievement, not feel bad because you can’t. Why have we always got to bring each other down? X

    I’ve not produced a Tree of Life photograph as I don’t really like to show quite so much in my breastfeeding photos – and I don’t take many of them either! BUT I love that these have gone pretty viral on Social Media. I think that it’s unfair that breastfeeding mothers are pounced on when all we’re doing is sharing our pride in providing for our children using our bodies – what they were made to do. I wouldn’t dream of saying anything derogatory about someone sharing their pride in formula feeding their child. Excellent post (and far more eloquently written than my comment haha) x

    A great post. I haven’t done a tree of life but I’m still feeding my 2 1/2 year old and I’m quietly proud of it. Actually I think she’s probably coming towards the end of breastfeeding now and for the first time in years I’m starting to feel a bit broody. I’ll miss breastfeeding, it’s such an amazing bond and I don’t know how anybody can say anything negative about it, especially if they’ve never done it.

  4. Love this post, totally agree with it. I think it’s such a shame that the tree of life photos have been met with negativity.
