The Beginning

In March 2019, I started Plus Size Breastfeeding on Instagram.
After my son’s six month well child visit, I wanted to celebrate our six month milestone of breastfeeding. I looked for a community or even an established hashtag to go along with plus size breastfeeding, and I didn’t find much. I checked to see if the handle @plussizebreastfeeding was taken. It was not! So I signed up. Created the account. Posted the first photo. Claimed space for all fat bodies that feed their children by breastfeeding and chestfeeding.

My husband snapped a pic of me feeding my son after our time with his doctor. I didn’t think much of it. I just wanted to remember it. I wanted to celebrate it. I wanted to be visible.

And I want that for you too.

Here’s the photo from the first post:
